On the 18th of May we held the Launch for our Movie Night in association with Eurofins. This unique event will take place on Saturday next the 1st of July at our Club Grounds at Clogherane with gates opening at 8.00pm.It is a Family Friendly Event and there will be Strictly No Alcohol. We would expect all Club Members to come on board to help with this venture to make it a complete success. Tickets are now on sale for this event and can be got from any committee member.The Movie shown on the night is The GOONIES. This has the makings of a great night, with all the trimmings on sale on the night, e.g. Popcorn and Hot Dogs with also your favourite drinks and munchies that are essential while watching the Goonies. Come early to get a good spot, don’t forget your Blanket, there will also be skills competitions for the young ones and the not so young ones before the Movie starts, so we are leaving no stone unturned to make sure that everybody has a great night.
10 THINGS YOU DIDNT KNOW ABOUT THE GOONIES
1.) Being the “Fat Kid” on Set Sucks
Jeff Cohen, the young actor who played Chunk in the film, has taken great pains to explain that being the “fat kid” of the gang was not all it was cracked up to be. Outside of being the butt of every joke in the script, Cohen made the point that kids in his position are often expected to eat throughout films, which was awful in practice. Citing the scene where Chunk sprays whipped cream into his mouth directly from the can as an example: “Say you do fifty takes, that’s fifty hits of the whipped cream.” Furthering the irony, it turns out that when Cohen hit high school, he started doing sports and slimmed down considerably. (.) He doesn’t act anymore, but he is an entertainment lawyer, a partner of a firm he founded himself.
2.) “Big Eyes” is the Key
The whole cast claims that director Richard Donner had one key direction for the kids in any scene where something dramatic took place. Apparently, Donner would call out “big eyes!” and the gang would do as told. Now go and watch the movie again, but this time, pick out the places where you think it was put to use!
3.) Always Invoke Michael Jackson
Of course, sometimes shouting “big eyes” didn’t do the trick. During the scene where the kids are banging on the pipes beneath the country club—which backfires when the plumbing explodes on them—Donner couldn’t get the reaction shot he wanted from Corey Feldman (Mouth) for “Reverse pressure!” Finally, Donner told the cast that Michael Jackson was coming to set right before Feldman’s line. He got the take.
4.) Kids Can’t Curse on Film!
Jonathan Ke Quan (billed then as Ke Huy-Quan in the film—he played Data as well as Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) made a promise to his mother than he wouldn’t swear on camera. Of course, there was a line in the script that called for Data to say “Holy shit!” and Quan desperately wanted to deliver it. He split the difference, which is why Data shouts “Holy S-H-I-T” instead. Adorable.
5.) Pirate Ship Secrets
One-Eyed Willie’s pirate ship was a real set that was built to look like Errol Flynn’s ship in The Sea Hawk
. While it was being constructed, the kids were not allowed to see it; the ship was hidden on another set behind tarps. Donner was hoping to get a real reaction from the cast for their first take seeing Willie’s ship, but when he rolled the camera and revealed it, the whole gang was so shocked by the sight that they started cursing up a storm, and the scene had to be re-shot. Once production wrapped, the crew tried to find someone who would take the ship, but no one wanted it, and the entire set was scrapped.
6.) Sloth Was Not Throwing People Around Set
Football star John Matuszak was chosen for the role of Sloth, but his sports injuries actually made it difficult for him to perform a lot of Sloth’s more physical moments. Jeff Cohen recalled that Matuszak was in quite a bit of pain following the scene where he picked Chunk up while the kid was tied to a chair. In addition, the line that Chunk delivers in that scene is often misheard. It’s not “You smell like fish heads,” but rather, “You smell like Phys Ed!” (Both things are equally smelly, but the idea of Sloth reeking of a gym locker room paints a hilarious picture, if you ask me.)
7.) All That Kissing
Little Sean Astin (Mikey) was super excited to kiss the older Kerri Green (Andy), like any boy in his early teens would be. It turns out, Green was simultaneously horrified at the idea of scarring the poor kid and thought the whole thing was creepy. Kissing Josh Brolin… was a different story, naturally.
8.) Mom and Dad Can Come Along
During the finale, when the kids are reunited with their parents, a lot of the adults in the film are the actual parents of the Goonies crew. Take a look at Chunk’s mom — he looks just like her.
9.) Joey Pants and Opera Chops
Joe Pantoliano is a character actor who frequently turns up in mafia yarns, but to the cast of The Goonies, they knew him simply as “Joey Pants.” No really, that was their nickname for him. (And now every time you spot him in a film, your brain will cry “Joey Pants!” I swear.) His brother in the movie was played by Robert Davi, who happens to be a professionally trained opera singer. That rare and lovely talent was put to good use, and ended up as a character eccentricity.
10.) From Start to Finish
The film was shot almost entirely in sequence from beginning to end. There was also a scene with an octopus that traps the kids, but it ended up on the cutting room floor. There was an entire single devoted to it, titled “8 Arms to Hold You.” And in honor of that lost single, I present to you the better known single by Cyndi Lauper, “(The Goonies ’R’) Good Enough”:
HOULI LONG PUCK
ENTRIES POUR IN FOR THE HOOLI LONG PUCK ON JULY 8th
Following the success of last year’s inaugural long puck organised by the Houihan family and friends in which over £13,000 was raised for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Fund, preparations for this year’s event at the Dungarvan GAA grounds on Saturday July 8th are well under way. Entries have already matched last year’s figures and the organisers are working diligently to stage this year’s ‘PUCK’ which will again be based around a family occasion. The day commemorates the life of David Houlihan who died in Thailand in 2015 and who was repatriated with the help of the Kevin Bell Repatriation fund and thoughts throughout the day are also very much with David’s clubmate Trevor Crotty who died in a road accident in 2016.
Patron of the event Rev. Fr. Ned Hassett will open the day’s events with mass in the club stand at 9am, following which the tree planted in honour of David and Trevor will be blessed. The Juveniles will get the long puck under way followed by the adult section over the same course as last year but starting and finishing at different points adjacent to the memorial tree. Throughout the day, food will be served and activities will cater for one and all in what is sure to be a very worthwhile event to attend.
Last year the auction and raffle on the Saturday night was an outstanding success and this year’s gathering will be staged in the Park Hotel with Gavin Whelan of WLRFM as compeer and Studio 80, the Duggan brothers providing the music.
The organising committee appreciates the sponsorship of local businesses, donations to the auction and everybody who is putting their shoulder to the wheel to make this year’s event another community based success.
