4. The Goonies

Original Release Date: June 7, 1985

Box Office Earnings:  $9,105,913 (USA opening weekend), $61,503,218 (USA gross)

Critical Acclaim: The movie won three awards and was nominated for six others. None of them were any mainstream awards, which is a shame because we know The Goonies deserved it.

About the Role: Brolin played Brand, one of the Walsh brothers who was preparing for the movie. They need to gather enough money to stop the development of a golf course to save their home. Fortunately, Brand and his brother Mikey find a treasure map and their group of friends set off on an adventure we all wanted to physically be a part of.

Simply the Best: What? How does The Goonies end up in the fourth spot? Surely it should have broken the top three. Josh Brolin even had a leading role in the movie and it was his first ever movie.

Well, yes, those are all certainly good points, but it’s worth putting those facts together with the awards won and box office earnings. And it was Brolin’s first role, which places a factor in his acting abilities. Don’t get me wrong, The Goonies is one awesome movie and it’s one everyone should see, but there are a few better.
