Listen, I've seen parts of The Goonies. I know it's a thing people love, but I think I missed the boat. I never saw it in my childhood and when I went back to see if I could still be part of the cool crowd, I just couldn't get into it. I'm sorry, OK? I'm sorry.

I have not actually sat down and watched all of The Goonies, although I feel like at this point I pretty much know the entire plot and the characters so I don't really feel the need to. The worst thing is that it was actually filmed very close to where I grew up on the Oregon Coast and usually one of the first or second things people say when they find out where I am from is, "Oh, is that near where they filmed The Goonies?"
