Hook

The idea sounded good on paper. Peter Pan as a grown-up (Robin Williams) trying to rescue his kids from Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman). However, the idea becomes thin after awhile. Hoffman seems rather goofy as Hook while Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell is just plain embarrising.

Directed by Steven Spielberg, this has none of the magic or excitement of his other movies to sustain anybody's interest and certainly nobody over the age of 8. It's better for young kids so that's the upside. The down side is that it doesn't give the same excitement as say "Jurassic Park" or Jaws. I'll take the Disney version of the story anyday.

My Rating = Two Stars
