Classic Film Friday: Hook

This is one those movies where you either loved it or you hated it. I fall into the "love it" category. If you are going to watch this "sequel" you first need to watch Disney's Peter Pan . This movie explores what it would be like if Peter Pan did grow up, find a woman, have kids, have a job... all of that stuff and then have him go back to neverland. Robin Williams plays Peter Banning (eventually Peter Pan). And he has adjusted to living in the real world, slave to the grind, every man kind of stuff.

He forgot about his past. Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman) steals his children to exact his revenge and Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts) helps Peter get back to neverland, get his kids back, and basically help Peter remember who he was and what he meant to all of the lost boys. Enjoy...

Even though I thought this movie a bit on the LONG side, I did enjoy it..Hoffman is brilliant.

And the redemptive factor is in full-swing.
Yeah, it's a keeper.

Have a great weekend
