Goonies, The

"Richard Donner's 'One-Eyed' Willie is the scare of the film."
5 stars

A young boy on an adventure with his buddies and older brother, search for "One-Eyed" Willy's hidden treasure. And no, it isn't gay porn!

There is too much gay man-boy molestation undertone in this film to get into here. Besides, I think it might be illegal to talk about that on the web. Goonies is brought to us by Richard Donner who also brought us these other NAMBLA cries for help:

The Toy
The Omen
Free Willy and Free Willy 2
The Lost Boys

But hey... he also gave us a gaggle of cool action films, so I guess that makes up for it.

Even with the homo-erotica, I loved this movie. Does this make me gay? I don't know. But I first saw Goonies in my early teens, and it was a confusing and experimental time for me.

Anyway... this movie is the ultimate pre-teen-boy movie. I don't know how the girls like it, but this is what every boy I knew wanted to do when I was that age. Yes, go sperlunking in dark caves looking for "One-Eyed" Willy.

Goonies is the dream of every boy... and even of some sweaty men.
