The Goonies is a 1985 family film directed by Richard Donner and its story was created by Steven Spielberg. It stars Sean Astin and Josh Brolin as the Walsh brothers.

It is about a group of young friends in Oregon who set out to find a long-lost Spanish pirate ship and a hidden treasure after finding a treasure map in an attic. The film has many conservative values, such as celebrating capitalism, Chivalry, family and clearly the Indiana Jones persona. Capitalism and family are celebrated in because Walsh's house is going on foreclose, the Goonies, as a result, are trying to compete to avoid foreclosure of their homes. Chivalry is shown, as one of the Goonies; Brand shows a lot of respect for his love interest Andy, and jumps in the water to save her from drowning. Also, a minor antagonist; Troy, who does not have chivalry, such as he was tilting the car mirror to look down Andy's shirt is shown in negative light.
