Trivia

Peter clapping his hands to heal Tinkerbell was a reference to the times when Peter Pan was performed on-stage. Peter would ask the audience to clap to heal Tink. In Peter Pan (1953), the clapping was left out because Peter couldn't interact with the audience and ask them to clap for Tinkerbell. See more »

Goofs

When Hook is giving the lesson to Jack and Maggie about why their parents hate them, he starts by underlining the word 'Hate' on a blackboard he has. However a few shots later the line that he drew to underline the word is now completely different. The line is longer and thicker. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Maggie: [as Wendy in the play] Boy, why are you crying?
Peter Pan in Play: I was crying, because I couldn't get my shadow to stick. Besides, I wasn't crying.

Watching it as an adult has given me a whole new perspective
10 July 2018 | by cricketbatSee all my reviews

Hook is another childhood favorite that still holds up well today. It runs a little long and there are some missteps (e.g. Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell), but it really does appeal to the child in me. And watching it as an adult has given me a whole new perspective on Peter Banning - including his shortcomings, fears and joys as a father. Plus, who doesn't love the imaginary banquet scene? This is a fun movie.
