A high-flying adventure from the magic of Steven Spielberg, HOOK stars Robin Williams as a grown-up Peter Pan and Dustin Hoffman as the infamous Captain Hook. Joining the fun is Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, Bob Hoskins as the pirate Smee, and Maggie Smith as Granny Wendy Darling, who must convince middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning that he was once the legendary Peter Pan. And so the adventure begins anew, with Peter off to Neverland to save his two children from Captain Hook. Along the way, he rediscovers the power of imagination, friendship, and of magic. A classic tale updated for children of all ages, HOOK was nominated for five Academy Awards(r) including Best Visual Effects in 1991.
Half the problems in this movie wouldn’t have been problems if Peter Panning wasn’t such a bad parent. Honestly, the first quarter of the movie is a lesson in how poorly he was raising his kids! I mean, sure the problems were all resolved with imagination, flying, and murder, but my point stands.
