Clint Says: Watch this film with the whole family
Raise your hand if you are a fan of The Goonies. If you are like me, you probably just put both hands in the air and shouted, "Goonies never say die!" It's okay to admit it. We are all Goonies here.
Now, click on the link above and watch the trailer for this film. If you don't say, "Wow, this is just like The Goonies," at least three times, I will have to question your Goonieness.
Yes, this movie looks and feels like it could be a remake of that amazing 80's classic. And that is totally fine.
The kids in this movie are all a joy to watch. They each bring something special to the film that, when added together, makes for great chemistry, and give you characters that you want to succeed.
While this isn't the big-budget blockbuster that The Goonies was, it has the same heart. It's a story of a group of misfit kids working together to find a hidden treasure to save their family home. They have to deal with several riddles and obstacles along the way. Each riddle or task plays to one of their strengths and to another's weakness. But together they can overcome all obstacles.
I watched this with my younger daughters who are 10 and 8 and they really enjoyed it. This is a perfect film to get the whole family together, order some take out, pop some popcorn, and turn your living room into a great evening of fun and entertainment.
