The Goonies is a 1985 American adventure–comedy film directed by Richard Donner. The screenplay was written by Chris Columbus from a story by executive producer Steven Spielberg. The film's premise features a band of pre-teens who live in the "Goon Docks" neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon attempting to save their homes from demolition, and in doing so, discover an old Spanish map that leads them on an adventure to unearth the long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willie, a legendary 17th-century pirate.
Facing foreclosure of their homes in Astoria, Oregon, a group of kids called the "Goonies" gather for a last weekend before their homes are demolished for a country club golf course. The kids consist of Mikey Walsh, an optimist and their leader who has asthma; his older brother Brand, who has outgrown the Goonies in search of popularity, though he is chided for failing his driver's test; their neighbor, an inventor named Data, whose inventions rarely work as intended; Mouth, a wisecracking and talkative son of a plumber; and Chunk, the overweight klutz who likes telling exaggerated tall tales.
