It seemed in 1985 every young man wanted to be a Goonie. Directed by Superman's Richard Donner, this Stephen Spielberg produced adventure took from the Indiana Jones formula but starred a group of young teens instead of Harrison Ford. Mikey, Mouth, Chunk, and Data out to find One Eyed Willie's treasure and save their houses from foreclosure--if the evil Fratelli family doesn't kill them first! This film was a favorite of some Now Playing hosts in the 80s, but does it hold up today or did they just have their bully blinders on? Donate to Now Playing to find out!
