Wonderful casting & original premise, but the story frankly sucked & too binary.
Director/producer slandered the education system while showing his thesis.
No mentoring by helpful teacher, librarian or even a fellow classmate? Pounded the protagonist down way too hard.
Insult game scene backhanded compliment on having an education.
Film probably negatively affected Terry Brooks's reputation who novelized the movie.
Unfortunately, that's Hollywood's problem in a nutshell!

Spielberg's worst movie?

This movie is my childhood. I grew up watching this movie and I instantly fell in love. AND THE LEGENDARY ROBIN WILLIAMS!

I have always loved this movie. I am watching with my daughter and notice this is one of Gwyneth Paltrow's first roles.

I don't think it was quite as good as some of the original Peter Pan movies, but this was entertaining and funny. Robin Williams was perfect for this role, but Dustin Hoffman made Capt. Hook seem not a mean.

If this one isn't a stupid idea for a flick, then I don't know what is.... Get this - Peter Pan, the eternal boy, grows up and becomes (of all things) a slimy, Manhattan lawyer. Yuck! What a despicable premise for a movie-plot.

Hook could have only come out of the self-satisfied head of Steven Spielberg, one of America's most idiotic and over-rated directors, ever.

The children portrayed in this flick actually made my skin crawl. Yes, they were that insufferable and obnoxious.

According to this flick - Steven Spielberg is the self-appointed expert on rearing children. And, this joker says that mothers need only to be themselves. Yeah. That's OK. Mothers aren't required to do anything else, but, just that - Be mothers.

But, on the other hand - Fathers must transcend beyond just being mere fathers. They must do cartwheels and, literally, turn into Peter Pan (just like Robin Williams did) before they can be allowed to gain acceptance from their snooty, little brats. It's the truth.

If you pay real close attention to Hook's unbelievably biased story it clearly defines the role of each parent in this ridiculous manner.

Great movie. One of Robin Williams best. This copy however, had some sound issues...the music seemed to drown out the dialogue a lot.

Much silliness and slapstick, but a sweetness to the story. Bob Hoskins and Dustin Hoffman are terrific.

My 7 yr old son cried when Captain Hook orders a pirate be locked in a chest with 2 live scorpions and when a young man was stabbed by Captain Hook. It might have been funnier when it came out, but my kids are sensitive about death, especially of kids.

Peter Banning: What's the deal? Where's the real food?
Tinkerbell: If you can't imagine yourself being Peter Pan, you won't *be* Peter Pan, so eat up.
Peter Banning: Eat what? There's nothing here. Gandhi ate more than this.

Peter Banning: You're a... you're a complex Freudian hallucination having something to do with my mother and I don't know why you have wings, but you have very lovely legs and you're a very nice tiny person and what am I saying, I don't know who my mother was; I'm an orphan and I've never taken drugs because I missed the sixties, I was an accountant.
Tinkerbell: Guess again.
