‘The Goonies’ Movie Summary

Mikey and his Goonie friends live in the boring small town of Astoria, Oregon where they yearn for adventure. One rainy day, the boys find themselves rummaging through Mikey’s attic when Mikey stumbles across an old map. Mikey thinks the map leads to One-eyed Willy’s treasure which will help keep everyone’s parent’s homes from foreclosure. They all head out on their bikes where they wind up at the very evil Mama Fratelli’s restaurant/hideout. In the basement, Mikey finds a secret passage that leads to caves below the town. As they head into the passage, Chunk goes to get help from the police, but the Fratellis catch him first. Chunk befriends Mama Fratelli’s disfigured son, Sloth while Mama and her sons go after the other kids to steal One-eyed Willy’s treasure too. Will they get the treasure, or will One-eyed Willy get the last laugh?
