Hook

Hook ★★★★★

First off, it's Peter Pan. Second, this movie is dark and more of a tragedy than a children's movie. We're talking Peter Pan, the hero who promised to never grow old, leaves Neverland, Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys (Who are seldom being killed by Captain Hook), to become a money hungry corporate lawyer. Furthermore, he becomes one of the worst fathers imaginable and a terrible husband. At the epitome of this extreme fall from grace, our hero forgets who he was and where he came from. And that's just the beginning of the movie.

Great cast all around. Robin Williams does a great job of transforming from corporate drunk to the youthful spirit of Peter Pan. Dustin Hoffman is a spot on Captain Hook. Julia Roberts, Maggie Smith, and Bob Hoskins, not to mention all the Lost Boys, really throw you in that world of Peter Pan. I love the colorful world that is protrayed in Neverland and though the movie is dark and focuses on dysfunctional father-son relationships, it still does take you back to your youth and the true spirit of Peter Pan.
