The Goonies Quote: “Kids suck!” – Mama Fratelli

Was Chunk fat-shamed or fat-famed? Does foreclosure really need to be explained? What’s the proper etiquette for wishing well coin collection? And does One-Eyed Willy’s hoard count as buried treasure or a fortune lost at sea? Gene and Big D fight for the honor of “The Goonies” as Roger argues it’s childish nonsense.

In “The Gooonies,” a band of kids who live in the “Goon Docks” neighborhood of Astoria, Ore., attempt to save their homes from demolition, and, in doing so, discover an old Spanish map that leads them on an adventure to unearth the long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willy, a legendary 17th-century pirate. During the entire adventure, they are chased by a family of criminals, who also want the treasure for themselves.

Plot Summary: “The Goonies” Old-fashioned yarn about a band of adventurous kids who take on the might of a property developing company which plans to destroy their home to build a country club. When the children discover an old pirate map in the attic, they follow it into an underground cavern in search of lost treasure but come up against plenty of dangerous obstacles along the way.
