While always a well-liked family adventure film, this tale of suburban kids battling frighteningly funny bad guys for the claim to an ancient pirate treasure has become a popular cult favorite in recent years. Whether you're a grown-up nostalgic for the '80s, or a youth yearning for a respite from smarmy post-ironic humor, there's enough high energy and gee-whiz optimism to make you both laugh at and cheer with the teens (Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman and Martha Plimpton) who take down the nasty cutthroats. Co-written and co-produced by Steven Spielberg. From Richard Donner, director of Superman.
