    "It's almost impossible to say something bad about The Goonies; fun and fantastic for the entire family. The kids are all wonderful actors with wonderful chemistry. The story is unusual and engaging while also maintaining a moral center."

    "I often wonder if Willis' carector or the boy is the protagonist in this story. I can say that this was a great movie and I think it was ahead of it's time and that is why so many people had their minds blown when they found out that Willis was dead. "

    "This movie really has become an instant cut classic. I wouldn't say that the movie is great but for some reason I've been drawn to watch it multiple times. It is full of dark humor and just outrageous circumstances. I am sure I'll be watching this movie many times over the coming years."
