Who doesn't love "The Goonies"?
This summer marks their 30th Anniversary and I say, have a GOONIES DAY!
You want to have some ice cream - it goes without saying! Curl up, darken the room, make it real cool, and enjoy a marathon. You might also consider some similar movies to watch, leading up to this gem. I'd include "Stand By Me," "Now and Then," "Explorers," "The Monster Squad," "The Last Starfighter," "Flight of the Navigator," "Little Darlings," "The Parent Trap," "The Outsiders," "Lucas," "My Side of the Mountain," "Escape to Witch "Mountain," "The Phantom Tollbooth," "War Games," "Snow Day," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

Everybody has a favorite part of the movie or a favorite character. I have to say that I always laugh when the kids hold up the map and the device to line up with the rock and the restaurant, as if the restaurant was there during pirate days. Hmmmm.... It didn't have to make sense, it just had to be a kid adventure.
