The Goonies

Visible crew/equipment: When Data crosses the beam with his 'slick shoes', the others are standing at the end of the beam telling him it's good enough. As their arms are stretched out towards Data, there is a platform lying atop the beam at Mouth's feet. (01:17:15)

Continuity mistake: After the final correct bone keys are played, Andy is the last to cross, and in the close-up of her feet the map actually falls behind her into the hole, but it is back up in its proper place for Andy to make that last second grab for it. (01:22:25)

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)

Question: How did One Eyed Willie's treasure map, the key and the story get out if Willie had been caved in for all these years?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: According to Mikey and Mr. Walsh, one of his crewmen must have taken the map and fled when One Eyed Willie was murdering his crew. This is substantiated in the novelization.

Question: Can someone please translate into English what Data says after he says "Wow!"?

Chosen answer: He says, "He is a big strong man."

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.
