Picks and Pans Review: The Goonies 'r' Good Enough

Cyndi Lauper

Any relation between what goes on in this video and its title—or anything else of a coherent nature—is coincidental. As shambles go, though, it’s quite enjoyable. Lauper bops around to her movie theme song with a supporting cast that includes her wrestling buddies, Captain Lou Albano and The Iron Sheik, her mother, Steven Spielberg, the kids from the film The Goonies and numerous others. There’s rather more incidental dialogue than usually shows up, though it’s largely concerned with the wrestlers yelling at each other. Anyway, if it’s decorum you want, why would you watch a Lauper video?
