Steven, didn't 1941 teach you anything...? A huge cast of stars chew the scenery in Spielberg's painfully self indulgent take on the Peter Pan story.

What if Captain Hook kidnapped his kids and he had to remember who he was? And how did he come to Neverland in the first place? All these questions are answered in Steven Spielberg's most panned film: Hook.
I saw this movie in the theater when it came out. I thought it was great at the time. Just about anything that Robin WIlliams was in was a hit with kids, and this was no exception. Over the years people have decided to rip this movie apart because it is a different variation on the idea of Peter Pan, but over all I thought it was a fun story. Dustin Hoffman played a great Hook, Bob Hoskins …
