(sweeping instrumental music) - "Goonies." - "The Goonies." - There's "Goonies" t-shirts everywhere. - Everyone loves mischievous kids. - Chunk. - Chunk is my favorite. - Chunk was just awesome. - Truffle shuffle. - Still holds up. - Still holds up. - For kids and adults. - "The Goonies" holds up because everyone wants to remember what it was like to be a kid and be like, "Wow, an old map," instead of like, "Why do my knees hurt?" (air whooshes) (dramatic instrumental music) (air whooshes) - "The Goonies" still holds up because it's a classic (cheerful instrumental music) kids adventure movie. It's fun, it's got treasure, it's got a tiny little family of criminals. At the end of the day, the town gets saved. Which was basically the plot of every movie in the '80s, is can we save this town through unconventional means? - Plot of "The Goonies" is very simple. A ragtag group of kids goes looking for pirate treasure so they can pay off a real estate developer who wants to knock down their houses to build a golf course. Also, there's a family of bank robbers led by an old lady and her three adult sons. It's all very simple. - Goonies cranks it up (lively instrumental music) real fast where it's like, "So there's kids on an adventure." And you're like, "Yeah." And they're like, "Then they find mob bosses." And you're like, "What?" And they're like, "And they have a deformed son." Did you have three movies you wanted to make and they'd only give you the budget for one? So now, it's like a pirate-mafia-monster movie. - I don't know, it's "The Goonies", man. (chuckles) (air whooshes) - I think "The Goonies" still hold up for people because it's sort of this like idealistic adventure like what if. You know, everybody kind of still thinks, "I could find a treasure map tomorrow, who knows?" So I think it's just sort of that wanting to believe in magic a little bit. (air whooshes) - When I was a kid I was very disturbed by it. (upbeat instrumental music) It's very dark but not in a intentional way, I think. It's just sort of, they're in a lot of danger. It may have been the first movie I saw as a kid where the kids really feel like they could like die. Not even at the hands of a villain, by just by exploring, just by adventuring. - In the '80s, parents were very nonchalant about knowing where their children were, okay. Kids were just able to just go out and live independently and be gone for days on end to go on this very scary journey to find a ship that is somehow in Oregon. (laughs) - I grew up in the woods so I did a lot of Goonies-like adventuring. Unfortunately, the most we would find would be like a bunch if empty Bud Light cans and like a box of porn. Not as exciting as a handful of jewels. - I think "The Goonies" is the first example of like the modern wave of movies specifically about a group of boys, usually around like middle school, having some sort of dangerous adventure. And the things that Goonies does, that every other variation on the story has also done, is giving each kid a very distinct identity where each kid has their thing. (air whooshes) - Sean Astin's kinda the boring leader kid. (groovy instrumental music) And Chunk is funny and dumb. And Corey Feldman's like a wise ass. And Data is like a nerd. - I think Chunk is my favorite because it's hard to be a funny kid, like legitimately funny kid, you know what I mean. And he was. I mean, he did like a lot of screaming. (air whooshes) - In fourth grade I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face. (air whooshes) - But he's a kid, like layoff, you know what I mean. - I mean Chunk is such a great character and we need a character like him to come back where it's funny to fat shame him, you know. - First, you gotta do the Truffle Shuffle. - Come on. (pinwheel rattles) - Do it! - Argh, ooh, ah, ooh. (air whooshes) - Like the Truffle Shuffle. I mean his friends are like, "You gotta do it." He doesn't wanna do it but then once he gets into doing the Truffle Shuffle, you can tell he's having a blast. He loves it. He's like, "Agh." They were done. They already opened the door and he was still doing it. He loves it. - Truffle Shuffle is a classic humiliation that he has to endure and honestly, you gotta give the guy credit. Presumably the rest of his life, he's been asked to do the Truffle Shuffle, which is why he probable became a bigshot entertainment lawyer, so he can boss people around. That's true, you can look that up. - Growing up watching "Goonies", you're just like, "This looks fun. "I wanna do this, I wanna go on an adventure "with my pals, you know." There's an Asian kid in "Goonies". There weren't Asian kids in movies back then so you're like, "I'm that guy, "even though he's a slightly racist character." (laughs) But at the time, we were like, "Ah, that's good enough." (laughs) (air whooshes) - My favorite performance in this movie is Data (lively instrumental music) because he's like the whiz kid in the film and he knows about the booby traps. Every time I watch Data, and maybe it was because he was also the only person of color in the film. I'm having this realization now. I think it was like, he was the only person of color in the film and I always was like, "Yeah, I wanna be that kid." - Data has so many good gadgets. He has the shoes that squirt oil that literally only come in handy for that specific situation. (air whooshes) - I gotta great idea, you guys, slick shoes. (water splashes) - [Group] Slick shoes, are you crazy? - Like what a burden to have that in your shoes all the time, just waiting to encounter Robert Davi and have him slip on a log. - I'm gonna say my favorite performance, and this is a personal choice, it's gotta be 16-17 year old Josh Brolin, (image dings) however old he was. I understand that a relationship between he and I when he was that age would be inappropriate, but I don't care. (laughs) - It is wild to see teenage Brolin. Like when you see Sean Astin, obviously Sean Astin has grown up, but he is a baby-faced man. Brolin like-- It's like he's a teenager but he's got that brow. Like Brolin has one of the best brows in Hollywood and even teenage Brolin has the scary brow. It's like there's little baby Thanos. - "The Goonies" is a (upbeat instrumental music) children's film that opens with a prison break, in which one guy appears to have hanged himself in his cell. Like that's a pretty dark way to open one of these movies. It doesn't open with the kids, it opens with a bunch of like hardened criminals doing violent stuff. Pouring gasoline on the ground, lighting it on fire to like escape from the cops. - Goonies is strange because it feels like two different movies that kind of collided with each other about halfway through. Meanwhile, the kids are trying to get a treasure to pay so they don't have to leave their homes and then they happen upon the Fratellis in their hideout. - What is this Italian crime family doing in the Pacific Northwest? How did they come to settle here? That's not where you belong, you know what I mean. It's the East Coast or Italy, baby, that's it. (chuckles) I don't know what you're doing here. (air whooshes) (dramatic instrumental music) (Fratelli screams) (air whooshes) - There's a lot of really good henchman work in "Goonies". (lively instrumental music) Just classic kids movie cartoon bad guys who don't really do much except fight with each other and get hit in the balls. But, man, they get hit in the balls really well. - I think the scene that I lock into, if I'm watching it, is the scene with Chunk and Sloth when he's like trying to feed him at first (chuckles). Like that first time. (air whooshes) - Look I got a Baby Ruth, sir. - (laughs) Wow. - Understand-- (air whooshes) - There's this danger. Like at first, he's just like screaming and then he's just like realizing, "Wait, like maybe I can befriend this person." He's like, "Oh, that's actually a human being." There's actually something really touching about that. The fact that these outcasts like come together. You know, these people who are being made fun of by the rest of their peer groups. It's like actually really deep, if you think about it. Like really deep. - I hope Sloth gets out of this all right. I mean, he's really the one I'm most concerned about of anyone in this movie. 'Cause like, that guy's gotta go through some rehabilitation and stuff. He's been locked in a basement for most of his life. - It must have been tough for the actor that played Sloth. You know, kinda like, "Ah, Mom I made it." And she's like, "Who are you?" And he's like, "Oh, I'm the monster that's chained "to the radiator. "It's me, your boy." (laughs) - They were probably making a movie without Sloth and then someone was like, "By the way, guys, it's 1985. "This is probable he last year we can get away with "doing one of these Sloth kinda deformed-guy characters." And they were like, (pensive instrumental music) "Well, it would help the movie." - I mean the scene (cheerful instrumental music) where they first see the pirate ship is pretty magical. Even that sort of translates if you see it as an adult. That sort of wide-eyed kid wonderment is pretty great. I feel like this movie gives a lot of unrealistic expectations about the Pacific Northwest, not least of which is that there are just wrecked pirate ships around. - I'm from the Pacific Northwest and you'd be surprised. There's a lot of secret pirate ships just kinda floating around. So I saw that and I was like, "This isn't surprising, at all." - The whole point of the movie is that they're trying to save the town (chuckles), right. One of the kids at then end is like, "Wait a minute, I've got a couple of gems here." And then his dad rips up the paperwork for the town and it's just like, "We have the exact right amount "of money (chuckles) to buy back our homes now." It's like, wait, you have no idea. There's like six gems there, man. I don't know, you're just doing a lot of math very quickly. I think you should not have ripped up the paperwork until you've spoken to a lawyer. - When I was a kid, I'm like, "Yeah, those are gems. "They must be worth like a million dollars each." Now I'm like, I don't know, he has to like to it a jeweler. He'll take a commission, like how much money-- There's taxes.
