Hook

Continuity mistake: In the plane, Peter's daughter shows a drawing with the plane burning. Depending on the angle she's either crouched next to the paper or standing away from the paper. This swaps back and forth.

Continuity mistake: After being with the mermaids, Peter falls off the basket into a puddle and rolls down with his hair soaking wet. Then cuts to him crawling and his hair is dry.

Continuity mistake: After the mermaid scene Peter is lifted in a basket. When the angle swaps to a close-up the basket is suddenly covered in leaves.

Continuity mistake: When the boy touches Peter's face, Peter is kneeling and is slightly taller than the kid. Then he says "Here you are, Peter!", the angle swaps to a wide one where Peter is now in a lower position than the kid. Then back to the close-up and he is back to a higher position. The boy's hands are also always inconsistent between the front and side angles.

Continuity mistake: On the pirate ship, when the watch is first seen, the time jumps all over the place. First, it's 6:32. Then it's at 6:34, then jumps to 6:42, then 6:38. Then after Hook gets up to find the ticking, it's at 6:27, and when Smee picks it up, 6:44.

Continuity mistake: In the ship, the watch reads 6:44, but when they're in Hook's clock museum, they lay the watch down and it reads 2:14, seven and a half hours for a five minute walk.

Continuity mistake: When the coconut flies at Peter, he spins, swings, and completely misses it. Then shown from another angle, he repeats the move, only to hit the coconut, but this time has his eyes closed in preparation for the liquid to fly everywhere.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The stuff that hit Rufio was originally blue with a touch of red and covered much of his face. Less than a minute later, it's mostly gone, but has changed to dabs of green with a touch of yellow over his left eyebrow.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: Peter picks up a wooden spoon and flicks imaginary food at Rufio. Looking at Rufio, a black plastic spoon covered in blue flicks some blue and red substance at him that has a consistency if pudding. When Peter looks at the now-covered spoon, it has red, green, yellow and blue stuff stuck on it.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: As Rufio makes his entrance, he swings on a twin roped bar, and a second later he's on a single vine, with nothing else nearby to swing on or from.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: During the sword fight between Pan and Hook, Pan switches the sword from right to left. After dodging a thrust, it's suddenly back in his right.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The lane switch on the overhead path is just off center so neither track is complete. As Peter begins to run, the piece is in place, presumably because Rufio came through, but there is no evidence of an automatic switching device.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Peter crawls into Nana's doghouse to greet her (after returning from Neverland) he shakes the doghouse a little as he crawls in, causing snow to fall of its roof, which lands in the two dogbowls next to it. But in the next shot the dogbowls are now empty with no snow in them and also there is a long bone sticking out one of the bowls too. (02:06:20)

Continuity mistake: When the nursery windows are opened (as Peter and the kids return) we see an orange leaf float inside the room and land on Moira's neck. In the next shot it is on her shoulder. (02:03:00)

Continuity mistake: When Peter gives the sword to the Lost Boy he chooses to leave in charge of Neverland, the Lost Boy holds the sword out, upright. In the next shot he is holding it down and once again lifts it upright. (02:02:15)

Continuity mistake: When Smee gives Hook his nightcap drink, Hook takes it in his hand and holds it at the top of the goblet so that it is hidden under his hand. But in the very next shot he is holding it by the handle and the whole goblet is now visible with a small black umbrella sticking out the top. Additionally, the position of the small umbrella that sits in the goblet changes a few times. (01:02:40)

More quotes from Hook

Trivia: The name 'Wendy' was popularised for girls by the play of Peter Pan - JM Barrie adapted it from the way a neighbour's daughter mispronounced "friend." However, prior to PP, Wendy was a unisex nickname for both Gwendolyn and Wendell, also a name in its own right to a limited degree. More info here: http://www.wendy.com/wendyweb/history.html.

More trivia for Hook

Question: 1) I remember reading online once that some person in a band (not any of the ones mentioned in the trivia for this movie) lost a bet and appeared as one of Hook's pirates in this movie. Is this true and if yes who was it? 2) I also once read online that it is a tradition for Peter Pan movies to have the same actor to play Hook and somebody else in the movie. I don't remember Dustin Hoffman as anybody else in this movie. Was he somebody else in the movie?

Answer: (1) David Crosby and Jimmy Buffett both appear as part of Hook's crew - whether either of them is there as a result of losing a bet is unknown. (2) Traditionally, in stage productions of Peter Pan, the actor who plays Hook will also take on the minor role of Mr Darling, Wendy's father. As, in the story presented in the film, Wendy is now elderly, her father is likely long dead, and thus no opportunity exists to maintain the tradition. However, you can hear Dustin Hoffman as the voice of the pilot on the plane ride to London, giving a nod to the tradition.
