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 the middle-aged lawyer, Peter Banning, that he was once the legendary Peter Pan.

But a trip to see Granny Wendy in London, where the vengeful Capt. Hook kidnaps Peter's kids and forces Peter to return to Neverland, could lead to a chance at redemption, in this family-oriented fantasy from director Steven Spielberg.. Hook Wiki
If you don’t enjoy this movie, then you don’t enjoy life. If you have yet to see this movie, be prepared for an adventure...one you’ll love!!!
Oh what a fun movie!
This is my favorite childhood movie! I recently bought it as a DVD (opposed to the VHS I grew up with) and watched it. I love it JUST as much as I did as a child. It is wonderous, imaginative, funny, nostalgic, and engaging! The Rotten Tomatoes reviews are inaccurate and it is robbing this amazing movie of its glory. I love this movie so much that I've just bought a digital copy. Robin Williams is an amazing actor. He brings so much life and wonder to the movie and nobody else could have done the job with as much excellence as he did! Definitely pull kids/family close and watch this movie!

Cult classic. One of the best childhood adventure movies, honestly it's great for the entire family. Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman made this an instant classic. 5 stars!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Robin Willimas is a much better actor than Brendan Fraser! Don't you agree?
I am 36 still a kid at heart and love love this movie
Hook. What a wonderful movie. It’s one of those movies that can bring the whole family together. All actors and actresses in this are great especially Dustin Hoffman. This movie blends action, comedy, story and plot into one. It shows beautifully the way Peter remembers his childhood and the scene when he becomes peter again and crows is one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. Steven Spielberg brings back your childhood in this amazing of the "Hook" movie.
Hook is a truly great movie with an amazing cast of characters (rip Robin Williams) and a spectacular story line.
The review from Herr Boff was spot on. I'd like to add that even as an adult, it is a good story with a poignant message. Children look for a dad who is able to view the world from their eyes and encourages a level of risk that invites adventure. They also look forward to spending time with their dad when he values them above all else without interruption (no cellphones, etc.) My son mentions these qualities when he describes the perfect dad. This message is widespread throughout the movie. The perfect self-made boy becoming a typical worldly man then transforming into the perfect boy-made dad.
i absolutely cannot understand why rotten tomatoes has given this movie such a low score. Robin Williams is brilliant as usual and this movie was a favourite of mine and my siblings while growing up.
This terrific movie answers the question "What happened to Peter Pan after he left Neverland?" Robin Williams is at his sympathetic best surrounded by a brilliant and fun cast. This movie will capture the imagination of the whole family. Buy it and enjoy!
Brilliant! truly brilliant movie!
..and is still good fun at 30 years old. Will make sure my kids watch. RIP Robin Williams, you will be missed.
Loved this movie so much I got into the stage show of Peter Pan and I got to play My Favorite Character from The Movie Smee played by Bob Hoskins I portrayed Smee as I knew how he had to be mischievous and fun and everyone loved the way I played him I will always love forever being Smee. The Characters in Hook are all well done it was so interesting seeing Dustin Hoffman behind Hook as u didn't recognize it was him.
