Over the last three decades, the 1985 comedy adventure starring a pubescent Sean Astin and a slightly-older Josh Brolin has seen its cinematic cult status rise so much, Gen-Xers who are smitten by nostalgia don’t care that the movie is sort of just alright (same thing for millennials and their love for Hocus Pocus, which many of them consider a Halloween classic). But I digress. Every parent should enjoy sharing something they loved during their childhood with their own young kids (I have my five-year-old daughter watching The Princess Bride and Pee-wee’s Big Adventure right now), so if your soft spot happens to be laughing at the scene where Chunk does the Truffle Shuffle or reveling in the heroics of a swashbuckling Sloth, so be it. You won’t have more fun experiencing a movie with your little ones than at one of the popular outdoor screenings sponsored by Slab Cinema. And what about that long-anticipated Goonies sequel? No new news to report, but back in 2010 Brolin told the Current, “I’m loyal to [The Goonies]. I would probably do anything they wanted me to … unless I thought the role was ridiculous.”
