In an interview with "Playboy" in 2004, Dustin Hoffman (Captain Hook) recalled his 'aha!' moment with 'Bob Hoskins' (Smee) about their characters being gay. They decided to play their characters as "a couple of old queens," because they felt J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan's creator, had created them that way: "Bob and I were rehearsing and suddenly we looked at each other and realized it at the same time. We said, 'These guys are gay....' and it was fun. Suddenly, we rehearsed it that way: 'Get over here, Smee. Give me a foot massage.' We went to Spielberg... and he said, 'This is a kids' movie.' Suddenly, it made all the sense in the world. They were really good friends. They lived on a ship. They were devoted to each other." See more »

I was 10 years old when I first saw this movie (and I was born in 1993), and it was one of my favorites. The 90's had a lot of very great movies, and I had to watch movies when I reached an age where I'd understand them. At 10 years old, I began to watch movie after movie to catch up to my older sister. Hook has many talented actors in it, and the plot was very good. The action scenes were very well done, the pirates were incredibly detailed in their clothes, and the whole island brought me back to the world of wonder that is Never Never Land. The Disney movie of it was what led me to watch this one, and because I watched the Disney one, it made me love this one even more. Sure, there are some of you who say it could have been better, and in some ways, I do agree, but for what they had to work with, I say it was a spectacular adventure.
