The Goonies…

Memories of my own youth meant I couldn’t resist this t-shirt from Next for Master E which of course lead to a family film night.
The Goonies is/was a PG rating, it was of course released in the days before 12′s. I was aware there were some scary parts and at least one sweary word and wasn’t too worried by these. On top of what I remembered, some parts at the beginning are of an adult nature but I think this went straight over their heads as it must’ve mine. There was more than one *gasp* word than I realised but I’m sure they’ve heard both me and Daddy let the same slip at a low moment. I hope they are sensible enough not to repeat – or at least not when we’re listening.
The bit that may not have shocked them if it wasn’t for my reaction came right at the end as the pirate ship sails into the sunset and one parent’s reaction is…
‘Holy Mary Mother of God!’
Oooops! Having the children in Catholic school I couldn’t help but tell them that was never to repeated. They asked why and I said it was blasphemy. Master E asked what that was, so Madam in her most know-it-all and sensible tone said…
‘I know; it’s when you speak Jesus’ language!’
