December 12, 2019 by Avery Faeth

This movie is so incredible, it's a masterpiece - and now that you've realized it's a Christmas movie, you can add it to your rotation! "Hook" (Steven Spielberg, 1991), starring Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Bob Hoskins, Julia Roberts, and Maggie Smith, is the modern classic continuation of the Peter Pan story. During a Christmastime visit to the foster mother who raised himself and his wife, Peter Banning's children are entranced with the tale of Peter Pan. The house they are visiting is the very home the original stories were based on. And when Peter's children go missing and an ominous note is left in their place, foster granny Wendy reveals a shocking secret - Peter is actually the Peter Pan of myth, returned to the real world and forgotten his past. A dubious Peter is swept into the magical world of Neverland by a Tinkerbell who believes in him more than he believes in her. With the help of the Lost Boys, Tink, and Hook himself, Peter has to rediscover his magical past in time to save his children. But once he does, how can he go back to the real world? Featuring cameos by Glenn Close, Jimmy Buffet, Carrie Fisher, and George Lucas, this film is a '90s family film icon.
