"It'll never be as entertaining for grown-ups as for thier kids."
Scarce original August, 1985 issue of BoxOffice, the magazine of the motion picture industry. Largely produced for studio employees as well movie theater owners and staff, BoxOffice is the longest running magazine devoted to the stories behind film in America (having started production in 1920). Contents include coverage of the upcoming "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" as well as "Fright Night" starring Roddy McDowall. Contents also include reviews of Rambo: First Blood Part II, The Goonies and Cocoon. The review of The Goonies by Jimmy Summers is less than flattering I would say.
"The Goonies is loads of good, mindless fun. But unlike "E.T.", "Star Wars" and the rest of its older brothers and sisters - movies that could be enjoyed equally on different levels by both adults and children - it'll never be as entertaining for grown-ups as for their kids. Adults will be doing foolish things like asking questions, since the plot isn't always explained, and when it is it doesn't always make much sense."
Slight wear to head and foot of spine. Large crease to front cover. Overall, clean and tight.
