So, I posted on Facebook that my sister had never seen The Goonies.

Holy cow, but that exploded. There are strong opinions on both sides, and a surprising number of folks who've never seen the film.

Going to be totally frank, here. I know it's silly and goofy and probably hasn't aged all that well, but it speaks to the outcast in us all... and all of us have a bit of outcast. Never was a huge fan of Sloth, hated how the Truffle Shuffle demeaned Chunk, but... pirate treasure. Adventure. Friendship. Kids fighting to help their parents, to keep their homes, to stay together. It's lovely.

Also: it makes for a great t-shirt. And Josh Brolin riding a wee pink bike continues brilliant.
