** Mikey mentions Music/MichaelJackson going over to Chunk's house in one scene. In real life, Corey Feldman was close friends with the singer and the two later became estranged.
** At one point in the movie, Mike cries out "Holy Mackenzie!" Creator/SeanAstin's brother is Mackenzie Astin.



** Sean Astin (who played Mikey in The Goonies) has said in a couple interviews that he always regretted everyone's demeanor while making that music video because him, the other child actors, and the crew were all very low-energy and catatonic, giving the impression that none of them wanted to work with Cyndi. In truth, though, everyone loved working with her, and everyone's indifferent attitude was because they had just finished making the film and everyone was exhausted. Astin has said he's wished he could get back in touch with Cyndi to explain all this, as he feels parts of her animosity towards the song had to do with everyone's behavior during filming.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: Music/CyndiLauper had such an unpleasant experience producing "Goonies 'r' Good Enough," first being forced to tack the title of the movie onto the title for publicity and then having CreativeDifferences with Richard Donner for the music video, that she grew to loath the song. It didn't appear on her compilations until 2003 and she didn't perform it live until a year later. She eventually warmed up to it when she was asked to record a parody of it for the ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' episode, "The Belchies."
