* HilariousInHindsight: The joke about MartinSheen being a president (despite having played Kennedy in a mini series) is funnier after he played President Bartlet in TheWestWing.

* HypocriticalHumor: Not in the film, but in the Magazine/{{Mad}} magazine satire. One panel of it shows the Goonies prominently holding Pepsi cans while making a jab at the movie for all the ProductPlacement in it. In the movie, Mikey is seen flipping through a copy of ''Mad'' (one reader called them out on this in the "Letters and Tomatoes" column the following month).

* HypeBacklash: It's a good movie but its fans have a habit of talking it up to such huge degrees that when new audiences finally sit down to watch it, it can't possibly live up to their expectations.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The film is generally remembered as a kids film, what with it centering on the adventures of a bunch of kids. However, the film features a man hanging from a noose, a child stuck in a closet with a corpse, a deformed man chained up in a basement, panty shots of a teenager, jokes about drugs and a whole scene dedicated to a statue's penis. When the SpecialEdition was released celebrating it's 25th Anniversary with a PG-13(12A) rating some were surprised, until they viewed the film [[ParentalBonus through adult eyes]].
