    Hook is a 1991 American fantasy adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg[3] and written by James V. Hart and Malia Scotch Marmo. It stars Robin Williams as Peter Banning / Peter Pan, Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook, Julia Roberts as Tinker Bell, Bob Hoskins as Smee, Maggie Smith as Wendy, Caroline Goodall as Moira Banning, and Charlie Korsmo as Jack Banning. It acts as a sequel to J. M. Barrie's 1911 novel Peter and Wendy focusing on an adult Peter Pan who has forgotten all about his childhood. In his new life, he is known as Peter Banning, a successful but unimaginative and workaholic corporate lawyer with a wife (Wendy's granddaughter) and two children. However, when Captain Hook, the enemy of his past, kidnaps his children, he returns to Neverland in order to save them. Along the journey he reclaims the memories of his past and becomes a better person.

    Loved it as a kid, love it more now. People gave Spielberg crap because he used the movie to somehow come to terms with some personal issues, but if that is a legitimate criticism then we should throw out basically half of basically everything in any kind of art form, hell if anything it makes the movie more interesting than just a pseudo-sequel to Peter Pan. They tried to do something similar with Tim Burton's Alice but it just doesn't pack the same punch (it doesn't help that Alice loses most of the charm when you deviate from deranged dreamlike logic and try to actually have a linear and logical fantasy plot like in Burton's movie).

    That movie was always depressing to me. It came out a few years after I started becoming aware of the movie industry. Hook came out at Christmas time or maybe Thanksgiving that year. It’d been lean times in Hollywood for a while because of the Gulf War, I guess. The entertainment show airing at 5:30 PM on CNN always followed the box office and NOTHING had opened up over 10mil in MONTH or maybe even longer until CAPE FEAR came out in the late summer. I think Cape Fear made 10mil and while that was seen as soft, it was also a big success for even getting that. Back then the establishment had little love for CAPE FEAR because they thought it was a sell your soul movie so that Scorsese could do his next movie (which I think was Age Of Innocence, so maybe they had something there).

    I grew up with this movie, and I never understood why the other kids liked it. I'm with Spielberg on this one -- I still don't like it. It's boring and dull and unlikable. Hoffman is fine, but the rest of this film eats.

    I actually still love this movie. As a 40yo smth hard working dad I can say that this movie has influenced me to try much much harder to be a better father. Less Peter from the beginning of the movie, more Peter from the end of the movie. My boys and I sometimes even crow. And we don't care how much people are laughing or how loudly my wife yells at us to stop our little insanity.

    I never watched this movie so I didn't know the Wendy/Peter Pan love twist. Which sadly enough, isn't the weirdest love story Robin Williams played considering he played a robot that falls in love with a girl, decades later he becomes "human enough" to have a relationship with her grand-daughter. ewww
