It’s time to open up a Baby Ruth and do a truffle shuffle because ‘The Goonies’ is turning 30!
Starring Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, and Josh Brolin, The Goonies was a movie for tweens — before tweens were even a thing. The Spielbergian plot follows kids from the “Goon Docks” section of Astoria, Oregon searching for pirate treasure. Along the way, they encounter a gang of criminals, the Toxic Avenger, “booty” traps, and the lady from Throw Momma from the Train. It may not have the heart of E.T. or suspense of Gremlins, but this 80s classic is like a two-hour theme park ride. Here are five scenes from this cult classic that help explain why Goonies never say die.
First you gotta do the Truffle Shuffle.
