This month the movie was The Goonies. I have a confession to make: I never saw the movie. In 1985 I was busy having a baby and my mind was occupied elsewhere. I know it is a cult fan movie and I always meant to watch it... so this was a good opportunity to get 'er done.
So I sat down in front of my computer and rented the movie from Amazon. I can see why it was a huge hit in 1985. Christopher Columbus and Steven Spielberg combination?? Instant winner! Then add in cute kids, villians, parents in absentia...all the great ideas in one movie! The Goonies was one of the top ten movies for 1985, grossing over $61 million.
The scene that inspired me was this one:
[Chunk and Sloth are chained up together]
Chunk: Hey, mister? Are you hungry? I got a Baby Ruth.
Sloth: Ruth! Ruth! Baby! Ruth!
Chunk: Here you go.
[Chunk tosses the candy bar to Sloth and it hits him in the head. Both scream]
Chunk: I'm sorry, mister! I'm sorry!
[Sloth rips his chains out of the wall and goes to pick up the candy bar. Then, he realizes he's free]
Chunk: Gee, mister. You're even hungrier than I am.
Loved the scene where the big bad monster only wants a candy bar and a friend! My inspiration comes in the form of a cocktail, a Baby Ruth martini!
