Apparently I should feel a terrible, horrible shame that I have never seen The Goonies.
Since attaining “adulthood” I seem to constantly shock people with this fact. I have been in countless conversations where people reference the movie and they realize I have no clue what they are talking about. This person then stares at me and yells
GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!
Well, last night I rectified this “situation” in the best way possible:
A FREE screening of The Goonies at The Orange Peel! The Orange Peel is actually a fairly famous music venue so it’s pretty cool to see something there for free! Well…we got beer and popcorn, but that’s mandatory, right?
Can you see the situation from this stellar I-phone picture? No? Weird.
Here is what it looks like during a show:
Anyway, I am pretty grateful that I can now say I have seen The Goonies, and stop horrifying the people I hang out with. My favorite part of the movie was when the kiddos are in the attic and have just found the treasure map. The sole male teenager in the crew tells the kids they are crazy to believe there is glorious treasure to be found and Mikey goes:
“What if? JUST, what if?!?!”
Think about it: Just…what if?!
This is going to be my new mantra.
