I rewatched the Goonies with my kids at the weekend. I was surprised at how much of an awful, awful film it was, which seems to hold such positive memories for everyone. The kids all talk over each other most of the time and a lot of the dialogue is inaudible and that which is, is pretty poorly scripted. The characters are pathetically one dimensional and unsympathetic. The whole premise is ridiculous. This pirate managed to carve out booby traps and release a map, whilst being trapped in a cave? And nobody bothered to look for it properly for 4oo years apart from one, poorly equipped man who didn't think to tread cautiously. How on earth did we used to enjoy films like this in the 80s? For comparison, I watched Twins the other day and thought it still stands up as a superb masterpiece.
