“You have to crow, have to fly. Have to save Maggie have to save Jack...Hook is back!”
What if Peter Pan grew up and returned to Never Land as an adult? One of our favorite good movies from the 90s, Hook, explores the possibilities! When Peter’s (Robin Williams) kids are kidnapped and mysteriously vanish, Wendy, having returned back to the real world far before Peter and is much older than him, tries to explain who he is. Peter refuses to believe or try to remember. But that just won’t do.
Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts) herself comes to find Peter Pan and brings him to Never Land to find and save his children from Captain Hook. The trouble is: Hook has kept himself sharp all these years planning his revenge on Peter Pan, but Peter has entirely forgotten about Never Land and all the skills he once possessed there, especially those of his sword.
To make matters worse, the Lost Boys have a new leader now and are skeptical whether or not the old lawyer man could really be Peter Pan. Tinkerbell arranges everything, even a three day grace period with Captain Hook in which time she hopes to train Peter for the task ahead of him: an all-out battle: Peter Pan and the Lost Boys against Captain Hook and all his pirates.
Peter just needs to find his happy thought in order to fly again, but his life is now so full of worldly worries that he just can’t find a thought happy enough to get his feet off the ground. He needs to remember his past and find his happy thought before three days are up or his kids start liking Captain Hook more than him. But will he be able to surmount these obstacles in so short an amount of time? That is for you to find out!
Another one of those wonderful good movies from the 90s with Robin Williams, this one has to find its way to your movie shelf!
