A group of young misfits called The Goonies discover an ancient map and set out on an adventure to find a legendary pirate's long-lost treasure.
During his time off from filming, Keith Walker became fascinated with the film's Astoria setting and it was there that he used the location as inspiration to write his only film screenplay which in-turn became known as Free Willy (1993). Richard Donner executive produced the latter and its sequels Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home (1995) and Free Willy 3: The Rescue (1997) while Jennie Lew Tugend was a producer for all three films and Donner's frequent collaborator Paul Tuerpe had a role in Free Willy 2 as an assistant to Milner. There are a couple more connections to The Goonies and Free Willy including the locations shot in Oregon, and Jesse's farewell to Willy mirroring Mikey's farewell to One-Eyed Willy.
Lunchtime! The longer you animals bark, the colder your lunch gets. Come on, move it out. You too, down there! Hey, turkey!
Mouth thanks Stef for offering to save his life; a reference to a cut scene.
The film's title logo appears after the end credits.
Although the UK cuts were fully restored by the BBFC in 2004 following the certificate upgrade to a '12' some early issues of the DVD featured the cut version and a lack of commentary, despite the latter being listed on the menus. The 2nd issue DVD corrected this and the two can be identified by the following..... 1. If the DVD states 2.0 Surround in the Audio Box on the reverse of the sleeve then this is the cut version and the commentary does not work. 2. If the DVD states 5.1 in the Audio Box on the reverse of the sleeve then this is the uncut version with the working commentary.
