The Goonies Movie Summary

Astoria is a small town in Oregon where it rains 194 days out of the year; for 170 more, it pours. That leaves one day for a Goonie adventure, but the rich douche bag of the town is putting a damper on it. He plans to expand the local country club with a kick-ass golf course.

Even though these families live near the country club, they are all somehow simultaneously facing foreclosure. With all the rain, I’d say they were underwater on their mortgages. Anyhow, the first house the greedy land developer targets is the local museum curator’s abode. His son, Mikey, also known as Samwise Gamgee leads the Goonies. Samwise and his friends: Data, the token Asian; Mouth, the token coke head; and Chunk, the token fat kid are looking for some excitement on what could be their last weekend together…forever.

Anyone want to go look for the rich stuff?”
