Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Goonies is a rambunctious, noisy, pirate-themed treasure-hunt action-fantasy -- all the ingredients that kids will love. Kids are in peril, find a dead body, are being hunted by thieves who are after their treasure map, and fall into all kinds of trouble. Beyond the (now-dated) special effects, cavernous (literally) sets, stunts, hideous skeletons, and outsized props, there's a message about being yourself and bonding with your friends and siblings -- even if they're outcasts. Some stereotyping -- the fat kid, the jock older brother, the Asian who's a gadget fanatic, etc. A physically disabled grown man is considered a "monster" by his family and is chained up under the stairs. Expect some vulgar humor and swearing (including "s--t"). The movie may be too scary for some kids, so know your kid before you watch.

Sexual Content

Some kissy-kissy stuff, and off-color humor about a nude classical statue's genitalia; teen boy adjusts rearview mirror to see up cheerleader's skirt.

Violence

Death and torture are constantly threatened and implied. Even though all that really happens is lots of falling down and getting wet, there are plenty of crushed/impaled skeletons along the way for maximum gruesomeness. Young kids also discover a frozen dead body.

Language

Several uses of "s--t" (by both kids and grown-up lowlifes), as well as "bulls--t," "damn," "goddamn," "ass," "hell," etc.

Social Behavior

Although there's some stereotyping and conflict/other iffy behavior among characters, overall the movie promotes positive messages about teamwork, believing in yourself, and the triumph of the underdog.

Consumerism

Brands seen/used/mentioned include Pepsi, Domino's Pizza, etc.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
