The Goonies Unspooled

    • Film History

This week, Paul and Amy are delving into nostalgia as they analyze the 1985 film The Goonies. They discuss the collaboration between Richard Donner and Steven Spielberg and the film's frenetic energy, and wonder what Martha Plimpton was doing with that crab! Bonus: Paul reveals The Goonies connection to Back To The Future!




Paul’s book Joyful Recollections of Trauma is on presale now! Out in stores on 5/20/24. Find it at https://www.harpercollins.com/products/joyful-recollections-of-trauma-paul-scheer




Next week, Paul and Amy take a look at the 1979 film Mad Max, in honor of the release of Furiosa. Check out this week's spotlight episode from the Unspooled archives, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, starring our favorite Goonie, Ke Huy Quan!
