Answer to Trivia

For The Goonies, pop singer Cyndi Lauper co-wrote and sang the theme song, "Goonies R Good Enough." To coincide with the release of the film, she created a 12-minute video that served more as a marketing tool for the film than anything else.

The music video included clips from the film and the cast reprised their characters to help Cyndi find enough treasure to save Mom and Pop's Gas Station. The cast for the video was rounded out by an eclectic collection of individuals including several WWF wrestlers, the band The Bangles before they had their breakout and even a cameo from the film's executive producer Steven Spielberg.

One of the cast members that reprised his Goonies role was Josh Brolin. In this week's Deadpool 2, Josh brings time-traveling mutant Cable to life. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is not one to shy away from wise-cracking on his co-stars' past films. He calls Josh "One-Eyed Willie" during one scene and he's seen lounging in Chunk's Hawaiian shirt in another scene.

Deadpool 2 is now available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
