The Goonies

A group of kids in a small Oregon town are all about to move away because the rich families in town are going to tear down their houses, known as the "goondocks" to build a golf course. As mikey, the main boy, tries to think of a way to come up with the money to save their houses, all his friends and him rush up to the attic to check out his dad's museum collection. They find a doubloon and a real treasure map of the famous pirate, One-Eyed Willy. As the kids embark on the treasure hunt, they end up at a restaurant, where the treasure is supposed to be under, and have a run in with some criminals and a somewhat deformed, but good-natured strongman named Sloth. Trying to find the pirate-ship and its treasure, they encounter booby traps and near-death experiences along the way.

Continuity mistake: During the jail breakout, when Jake tries to open the ORV's door, in the shot facing Francis he is holding the gun in his left hand as he tries to open the door for his brother with his right hand. In the next shot facing Jake just before shouts, "I don't have the handle, open the lock!" Francis's gloved left hand is empty, and next shot, the gun can be seen in his right hand. (00:01:45)

Brand: Like your brain right, lame-o? Say good-bye to your little pals.

Question: Heres something I never quite understood. Back in One-eyed Willie's day it seems they were Spanish speaking. What with the Spanish Armada and all. So why is it that the Treasure Map is written in Spanish, but rhymes in English?

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: Well, his ship is hidden in America where the people spoke english, so perhaps it was done for the benefit of those who were most likely to find the map. Must have been his idea of a joke.Actually though, I'm betting it was the result of the filmmakers not thinking that through.
