Movie Review by Zara
March 7th, 2008

Favorite Movie Quote: "You're not so ugly when your face isn't screwing it up..."

You know what? This is a well made action flick for the tween age kids who don't need to be subjected to foul language or gross-out humour in order to be entertained.

Remember (if you were a kid when this was released) that the funniest and grossest things were the Fratellli brothers slipping and hitting their balls and the kids needing to escape through the legs of the mutant Fratelli?

When kisses were chaste but contained so much intrigue? When you wanted to hang out with your friends and actually find an adventure instead of sitting around and playing a video game about it?

I guess I'm sad that more movies like THE GOONIES aren't being made. We're too afraid to offend anyone so instead we offend people by making films that are condescending in their overly chaste nature or offending that we're letting children act like adults so quickly.

I happen to really like this film and will stop and watch it if I'm cruising channels (which is rarely, since I steer clear of most TV). It reminds me of being a kid and it also reminds me of when being a kid wasn't as scary as it's become, with all of our "protections" in line at the same time.
