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. And so the adventure begins anew, with Peter off to Neverland to save his two children from Captain Hook. Along the way, he rediscovers the power of imagination, of friendship, and of magic. A classic tale updated for children of all ages, Hook was nominated for five 1991 Academy Awards® including best visual effects.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The look of Hook is lively indeed but Steven Spielberg directs on autopilot here, giving in too quickly to his sentimental, syrupy qualities.

Clumsy mishmash of a comedy has violence, profanity.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hook is a 1991 Steven Spielberg-directed movie in which Robin Williams plays an older version of Peter Pan who must "become young" again to save his kids after Captain Hook kidnaps and takes them to Neverland. The pirates and some situations in this movie may frighten sensitive viewers. Two children are abducted by a villainous storybook pirate and threatened with death. The pirate Hook kills, displays comic suicidal tendencies, and tries to seduce children into hating their father. Peter Pan is kissed on the mouth by several mermaids at the same time. There is a lengthy name-calling exchange between Williams and a young boy, including phrases such as "maggotburger" and "near-sighted gynecologist," culminating in Williams screaming "Eat me!" The lead character takes a large sip of whiskey and stumbles, and there's a reference to drugs. Profanity includes "ass," "bitch," and "hell." When pirates walk through a wharf, there's a brief scene where the madam of a house of ill repute tells her prostitutes to "paint your faces, ladies!"
