My Old Addiction

The Goonies


(out of 5)

A group of misfit kids have to face the loss of their homes when a fancy development is planned to replace them unless their families can come up with the money to save their property. As this is unlikely, the kids are ready to give up hope until one of them discovers an old pirate map that leads to treasure. When the map takes them to the home of a mean family of thieves, under whose abode the mouth of the treasure cave resides, they begin a race against some pretty bad criminals towards the loot that will hopefully help them save their homes.  Hampered by clunky direction and badly overdone production design, this crazy, graceless adventure film will have no trouble in winning over the kids. Adults will find it inane, while young people will want to watch it over and over again. Cyndi Lauper contributes a bouncy theme song, ‘The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough’.
