Everyone who grew up in the 80’s knows what the Truffle Shuffle is.
We recognize the phrase “Booby twap” and know all the words to Cindy Lauper’s “Good Enough.”
It’s all thanks to “The Goonies,” an iconic movie that endures today as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of its release. Also, Warner Bros. announced today the release of a corresponding anniversay Blu-Ray, due out Nov. 2.
This movie was such a hit because it was made with great love by director Richard Donner, who brought us the classic original “Superman” and was produced by Steven Spielberg, who has brought us countless classics from “Jaws” to “Indiana Jones.” This was a film through the eyes of children, which is why children relate to it so well. It wasn’t by mistake or chance that this film was a success. This had a smart script that wasn’t afraid to be fun and carefree, but capture the spirit of child’s imagination with action, suspense and humor.
Tonight I’m going to kick back, eat a Baby Ruth, and enjoy “The Goonies” because Goonies never say die.
