Starring: Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts, and Bob Hoskins

Release Date: December 11, 1991

London: 'Pirate' lawyer Peter Banning has returned to see his children kidnapped and a note to reclaim his children signed "Hook". Now, Banning (Robin Williams) must rediscover his youthful days as Peter Pan if he wants to reclaim his children from his old nemesis, Captain Hook (Hoffman). This is a fantastic adventure, full of whimsy, comedy,and a lot of heart. Also, it doens't hurt that Spielberg crafts Neverland as a gigantic playground, full of amazing sets and brillliant designs (such as Hook's pirate ship). The casting is superb, from Wiliams playing Banning as a man trying to discover who he is, who he was, and how to be a good father to his kids, Juila Roberts (having a gleeful performance as Tinker Bell), and Dustin Hoffman as the vllainous, boastful Captain James Hook.
