When two brothers find out they might lose their house they are desperate to find a way to keep their home. They find a treasure map and bring some friends along to find it. They are all out looking for the “X” and trying to get away from a group of bad guys who also want the treasure. This iconic 80’s movie was released on June 7, 1985 (USA). It was an American adventure comedy film directed by Richard Donner. Here are some facts you may not know!
1The pirate ship was a pretty big deal.
An actual pirate ship was built for the movie and none of the cast was permitted to see it before filming to maintain its allure. When the kids finally did see it for the first time several of them blurted out curse words in awe and the scene had to be re-filmed without the cursing. After filming wrapped, the ship was put on the market, but apparently nobody had a use for a pirate ship and it was scrapped.
