Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Goonies has every imaginable funhouse flourish. It has crooks, bats, cobwebs, skeletons, a lovable monster, an underground grotto and a treasure hidden by some of the most considerate, clue-loving pirates who ever lived.
Fresh: The action at the center of Chris Columbus' script occasionally falters and generally feels manufactured, but the kids go about their chores as if convinced that all their make-believe is true.
Fresh: The Goonies is a smooth mixture of the usual ingredients from Steven Spielberg action movies, made special because of the high-energy performances of the kids who have the adventures.
Rotten: It's a charmless exercise: director Richard Donner turns the kids into shrieking ferrets, and his jumpy cutting seems to lag behind the action deliberately in a curious attempt to make the film seem more chaotic and cluttered.
I'm not entirely sure how this movie holds up in terms of whether or not new audiences continue to love it, but for those of us who grew up in the 80s, it's become a well-loved classic. I honestly don't know a single person of my generation who doesn't like this movie.
