Mikey and Brandon Walsh are two brothers whose family is preparing to move due to a new development that is sure to be started unless enough money is raised, which is quite doubtful. But, when Mikey stumbles on a treasure map of the famed "One-Eyed" Willy's hidden fortune, he, his brother, and a few friends set out on a quest to find the riches in hopes to save their homes. The entrance to a cavern is found, but it is located underneath the house of the Fratelli family, a treacherous group of thieves who attempt to beat the "Goonies" to the treasure.

Can you imagine thousands of people standing in your yard every day for years on end doing The Truffle Shuffle, made famous by Chunk in the 1985 classic The Goonies? That was the breaking point for one woman in Astoria, Oregon. She just so happens to own the exact house where Mikey (Sean Astin and his brother older Brand (Josh Brolin) lived in the Richard Donner directed family adventure. And She's decided to shut that noise down!
The house, which was once a very popular tourist destination and the site of an annual Goonies convention and multiple cast reunions, has been closed to visitors after the owner grew disenfranchised with people visiting it every single day. The most popular area of the house is the front fence, where Mouth (Corey Feldman) made Chunk (Jeff Cohen) do his infamous, bare stomach shimmy known as The Truffle Shuffle.Read More
