Yes. You're the only person in the world who doesn't like Goonies. /isolating tactics

No, Liz, you're not alone (although it may just wind up being the two of us). There are a lot of stupid flicks that I have an adolescent attachment to, but The Goonies certainly isn't one of them. I never understood the appreciation.

I'm not a fan of the Goonies either.

I was surprised that Real Genius didn't make the list -- when I was a proto-geek, I lived for finding an early-entrance program like that. When I visited Simon's Rock and PEG at Mary Baldwin College in high school, there were no lasers or steam tunnels.

Now every time I make popcorn on the stovetop, I hear "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" while it's popping.

Chalk up another anti-Goonies. Even if I was 24 when it was released.

OOOOHHHH, Real Genius!!!!! Love, love, love.

Liz said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only non-Goonies fan in the world. We should start a club!

Our kid is going to watch goonies with just me then. GOONIES IS THE BEST AND YOU ARE ALL WRONG! WRONG!

Not a Goonies fan, though I know a lot of people who are. I generally just change the subject whenever it comes up.

I *love* Real Genius, however.
