Fridge / The Goonies

  • Fridge Brilliance: How did a Spanish ship end up in Astoria, Oregon? Well, the Spanish did explore that far north when they were sailing up and down the coast of what is now the United States in the 16th and 17th centuries. It was also disputed territory between Spain (claiming it from the south) and England (coming from the east) at the time.
  • Fridge Horror: "Break...FALL...!" can easily be this. It's almost as if the film's implying that the entire reason for Sloth's physical and mental deformities are the result of his being dropped as a baby. (See Childhood Brain Damage on the Main page.) GEEZ, what a disturbing thing in a kid's movie!
