The Making of a Cult Classic: The Unauthorized Story of 'The Goonies' (2010)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Richard Donnor, Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Robert Davi, Joe Pantoliano, Lupe Ontiveros and Jeff Cohen are among the people interviewed for this twenty-four minute documentary that takes a look at the making of THE GOONIES.

It seems this came about because so many fans were disappointed in the extras for the original DVD release. This here is quite nice as there are some major names from the film who appear here and it's always great getting to hear them talk about the making of the film. There's some nice discussions on the original casting, the production, an alternate ending as well as some scenes that were shot by Spielberg but not used in the film.

What's contained within the 24-minutes is certainly a lot of fun but I do wish this had lasted longer. You've got so many of the main people here that it's too bad this didn't last a bit longer.
