While the pre-pubescents continually scream, their doting parents prove equally odious in a finale of astounding sentimentality.

I find nothing entertaining about kids screaming for two hours.

Apollo Guide

Donner's direction of Spielberg's tale is noisy, choppy and surprisingly pedestrian.

Movie Metropolis

...lacks charm, wit, or warmth, yet appears to remain a hit with children because of its frenetic pace, slapstick gags, goofy characters, and slightly naughty language.

Loud music, even louder kids, loud sound effects make for one of the most annoying motion pictures ever made.

For some, The Goonies is a classic, but for others the film is simply a mediocre kids' flick.

All parceled up in one of those gooey 'money doesn't buy happiness' endings so beloved by multimillionaire producers.

It's a charmless exercise: director Richard Donner turns the kids into shrieking ferrets, and his jumpy cutting seems to lag behind the action deliberately in a curious attempt to make the film seem more chaotic and cluttered.

The Goonies is a smooth mixture of the usual ingredients from Steven Spielberg action movies, made special because of the high-energy performances of the kids who have the adventures.

Replete with lavish and quirky set design, goofily harmless antics, and smart scoring, Donner manages to delight and surprise at every turn in a coming of age tale the likes of which is rarely seen.
