On June 7th, 1985 “The Goonies” was released. It’s 29 years later and I have just watched it for the first time. Can you believe it?!
I’m super sad that I didn’t see this movie as a kid. Just think of all the good/bad ideas it would have given me! The good news is I still can learn a lot from “The Goonies” even as an adult…
-Doing the truffle shuffle may get you into the cool club, but it will never make you cool.
-Good friends are hard to come by and they come in all shapes and sizes. It takes all kinds!
-Life is full of booty booby traps. Be prepared!
-Confession is good for the soul. Be honest, not just when your hand is being held over a blender.
-Great adventures are rare. So, if you find a treasure map (or just a really cool life opportunity), go for it! You may never get the chance again!
There were quite a few times throughout the movie where I turned to my husband and said, “I swear to you, I am Chunk in real life”. So, I took the Buzzfeed Quiz to determine which Goonie character I am. Here’s a screen grab of my results…
Told ya! It must be his infinite love for ice cream and pizza.
I truly loved this movie, so thanks for the suggestions! Now, I’m going to go watch that “Goldbergs” episode from a few weeks ago with all the Goonies references. I’ll get ‘em now!
