Trivia

According to Phil Collins in an interview, Dustin Hoffman was so meticulous that he was present two months before he was actually required to film his scenes simply so that he could get immersed in the role. See more »

Goofs

After just arriving in Neverland, Peter comes across a gang of Pirates that take a fancy to the leather shoes he is wearing. A couple of the pirates in the gang bend down so they are almost to the floor, but as the shots differ they continue to change from either being bent over / standing up straight. See more »

User Reviews

9/10 for Dustin Hoffman's performance alone.
15 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a fantastic classic movie of a classic fairy tale.

The sets are amazing (none of this green screen crap!)

The acting is fantastic. Dustin Hoffman, Maggie Smith, Robin Williams, and Charlie Korsmo do an especially good job.

The adaptation is written very well. Instead of the boy who can't grow up, it's the man who's forgotten how to have fun, and be in the moment, like a child.

The IMDb rating is way off. How the hell does Pitch Perfect, and rubbish like that do better? How? Because either this site is full of morons with no taste, or the world is, or more likely both...

All negativeness aside, this is a great movie, if you haven't scene it, you're missing out.
