Hook

Continuity mistake: When Peter steps out onto the ships deck (before Hook comes out and makes his speech), Tinkerbell is with him and she lands on the top of a barrell. On top of the barrell is a glass bottle laying down, which between shots (as Tink lands on the barrell), changes which direction it is pointing. In addition the large piece of rope sitting next to it differs in position as well. (00:38:00)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is giving the lesson to Jack and Maggie about why their parents hate them, he starts by underlining the word 'Hate' on a blackboard he has. However a few shots later the line that he drew to underline the word is now completely different. The line is longer and thicker. (01:05:45 - 01:06:40)

Continuity mistake: During the lesson that Hook is giving to Jack and Maggie about their parents hating them, the items on Jack and Maggie's desk (most noticabely the large white feathery quills and the large sheets of paper) change position a few times. (01:06:30)

Continuity mistake: When Peter first enters the Lost Boys' urban-style playground, he is suddenly startled by Lost Boys on skateboards that begin to circle him. But in the next shot focusing on one Lost Boy dunking a basketball through the hoop, you can see Peter in the background, only now the Lost Boys that were skating around him have disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Smee about the subject of Peter Pan (as Smee collects food from the table), Hook holds up his hooked hand and stares at it as he is talking. As the shots differ from wide views of the room to closeups of Hook, the lace cuff that surrounds his hooked hand keeps differing in its position. (00:59:20)

Continuity mistake: When the little Lost Boy begins to "inspect" Peter by tugging at his face and whatnot, in the first shot as he pulls Peter's cheeks the bracelet that he has around his wrist has a feather attached to it which is at the top of his wrist. In the next shot the bracelet has suddenly rotated, as the feather is now at the bottom (under his wrist). (00:56:10)

Continuity mistake: At the imaginary dinner with Peter and the Lost Boys; when Rufio throws his plate across the table at Peter, in this shot and the next few shots that follow, the large black pan that sits on the table in front of Peter keeps moving closer then further away from his plate. (01:11:10)

Continuity mistake: When Peter first walks into the clearing of the Lost Boys hideout, there is a vine hanging from the tree that is touching the floor (which Peter steps into) and the vine has excess which is curled up in a large pile on the ground. But when it shows Peter stepping into the vine, it is only curled round in one circle - not the large pile it was beforehand. (00:49:40)

Continuity mistake: After Peter has been shot with the goo arrows (which stain his shirt) after they hit his chest, in the very next shot the positions of the arrows on his chest have changed to different places than they were previously. (00:52:35)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Peter on the ship, he is wearing his eyeglasses as he examines him and his scar, to see if it really is Peter Pan. But as soon as he turns and walks away from Peter his eyeglasses have vanished from his face. (00:42:55)

Continuity mistake: When Smee is standing on the stairs, making his introduction speech for Captain Hook's entrance, the bandana ties that hang down on his back change position a few times, most noticeable when he turns around to walk back up the the top of the staircase. (00:38:10)

Continuity mistake: When the mermaids are saving Peter, the second redheaded mermaid that swims over to him grabs his waist and kisses him. But in the very next facial closeup her hands are suddenly up by his neck. (00:48:20)

Continuity mistake: When Rufio and the Lost Boys are circling Peter (after he has dropped in their hideout), Rufio is standing in front of him brandishing his sword. In one shot he holds the sword out above him but in the next shot he is holding it down by his side. (00:51:45)

Continuity mistake: When Moira grabs the phone from Peter's hands and throws it out the window, as the phone falls to the ground and then when it lands, the length at which the phone's antenna is sticking out keeps changing from shot to shot. (00:14:50)

Continuity mistake: From when Smee and Captain Hook are inspecting Peter's scar onboard the ship, to later in the film when the Lost Boys are painting Peter's bare chest, the proportions of the scar (size, shape, location) are completely different. (00:42:25 - 01:06:00)

Continuity mistake: When Moira and Peter are at Wendy's beside, as she rests after being shaken at her honourary dinner, we can see a book sitting on the bedside table and it is resting at a crooked angle. But when Wendy askes Peter to hand it over to her, the camera zooms in for a closeup of the book which is now sitting at a perfectly straight and neat angle. (00:26:10)

Continuity mistake: Hook has Jack and Maggie caught in a large rope net which dangles from the ship's mast. When the net is hoisted up and Hook tells Peter he must fly up and touch their hands, in the wideshot we see the large rope net swinging back and forth in the air. But in the next shot as it focuses on a shot of Jack and Maggie in the net, it is at a complete stand still and is not swinging at all. (00:44:25)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is sitting at the foot of the bed, talking to Moira about how he has to take the phonecall (as the phone rings in his hand), between shots he differs from having the phone either held down in his lap to up by his face. (00:14:40)

Continuity mistake: When Captain Hook walks across the ship and up to the pirate that bet against him finding Peter Pan, we see Peter standing to the side (between the pirate and Hook) and he moves the eyepatch that he is wearing across from his right eye to his left eye. As he does this, the eyepatch strap falls off the right spectacle. But in the next shot the eyepatch strap has now moved back up and is resting perfectly across the glass frame of the right spectacle. (00:40:20)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene at the school play as the shots change from wide views of the audience, to closeups of Moira and the children, the positions of everyone sitting around them continues to change. In addition the people standing up in the background keep moving, and in some shots we can see people standing with camcorders, but then in the next shots there is nobody with a camcorder visible.

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)
