It’s my turn to confess my ignorance in this week’s episode of “You Haven’t Seen THAT?! Part 2”: I have never seen the beloved classic of youth “The Goonies.” Nope. Just never got around to it. And now that I’ve seen it . . . much like “American Pie,” I’m a bit disappointed as to the subject matter. I thought I was in for a rollicking good time following the misadventures of a group of Laysan albatrosses (look it up if you can’t guess) or maybe a charming interpretation of a song from my childhood, “Little Bunny Froufrou” (who does, in fact, become a Goon at the end of the song, sorry for the spoiler). But alas, no! I get a bunch of incredibly annoying pre-adolescent boys (in other words, pre-adolescent boys. Hey, Mike and I were those things; we know whereof we speak), some of whom grew up to be adorable Hobbits named Sam or galactic tyrants named Thanos or, tragically, Corey Feldman. The folks behind the camera are worth noting as well, so join us while we note them! And other things! So much noting, you won’t believe it! Goonies never say . . . line?
Poll question: what is a movie you loved as a child that you just can’t watch it as an adult?
