In 1985, Steven Spielberg had a stroke of genius. He combined a disfigured man-child with a candy bar fetish, a move known as the Truffle Shuffle, a pirate named after a penis (One-Eyed Willie), a young Corey Feldman and a future hobbit into a treasure quest film that defined a generation. Richard Donner directed The Goonies, the story of a rag tag group of misfits on the run from a mob family while searching for buried treasure to save their beloved homes on the Goon Docks. You see, the brilliant thing about The Goonies is that they spend all their time searching for treasure when the real treasure is the memories they are making together. Watch The Goonies at Regency Cinemas this weekend and learn the meaning of Goonieism for yourself, because Goonies never say die.
