A group of pre-teen friends set out to find a lost pirate treasure hidden beneath their small Oregon town, in this kiddie spin on Indiana Jones from producer Steven Spielberg.

When their parents' houses are threatened with foreclosure, a group of pre-teen friends who call themselves "The Goonies" resolve to find the lost treasure of a fearsome pirate chieftain, which legend says is located somewhere beneath their small Oregon town, and use the spoils to save their homes. Discovering a fabulous underground cavern, the friends must contend with a series of elaborate death traps set up by the pirate band to protect their booty — all while being pursued by a family of fugitive bank robbers who have their eyes on the treasure as well. A kiddie spin on Indiana Jones from producer Steven Spielberg, featuring an appealing cast of young up-and-comers — including one of the Coreys (Feldman), a pre-Lord of the Rings Sean Astin and a bandanna-sporting Josh Brolin — The Goonies has become a much-loved cult classic.
