Speaking of Goonies... The Truffle Shuffle!
It wasn't until recently that I realized what Truffle Shuffle meant. A truffle being a rare mushroom traditionally found through special truffle hunting pigs. And shuffle, of course, meaning lazy dance. They are telling Chunk to do the Pig Dance.
For some reason, I have no problem with the Goonies asking Chunk to lift his shirt up and let that sweet fat fly. You must amuse me to gain entrance. But to call it a Pig Dance just seems to go a little too far. Of course, Chunk has no problem with his nickname being Chunk, will answer to the name Chunk, his family calls him Chunk, so pig dance probably isn't a big concern to Lawrence.
No Goonies Sequel
As of yet there's no sequel to the Goonies. Sources close to Movie Hole claim Goonies 2 is very much underway. But I'll believe that when pig's dance. The sequel would have teamed the original cast up with new Goonies. I imagine only Corey Feldman and Joey Pants were eager to sign up. A movie about a bunch of grown men wrestling around in the mountains with a group of kids is always a recipe for disaster. They could use the story to the Goonies II video game though, which involved a mermaid for some reason.
Of course, they've broken our hearts before. In 2007, director Richard Donner announced Goonies: The Musical. Which seems to be equally far away from happening. Two years later and still no news. I want to see lavish pirate set pieces, Goonies dance numbers, and an extremely gay Mikey twirl his way into our hearts. Cult movies seem to be a fairly solid formula for Broadway success: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the Producers, and Young Frankenstein to name a few. I'm waiting for Eraserhead: The Musical, should be a good ol' time.
If a Goonies musical or sequel ever does happen though, may I suggest star of screen and stage, Brian Posehn as Sloth.
