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.

Revealing mistake: When the coconut flies at Peter, there are a couple of flashes of light reflected from the device used to connect wire to the coconut.

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.

Revealing mistake: As Peter pulls himself up to look over the brick wall, the entire snow drift on top moves, showing it's set dressing.

Other mistake: As Peter walks away Hook raises his arm. As he does, the tip of the hidden sword is visible before it ejects.

Suggested correction: How is this a mistake? He had a sword hidden up his sleeve, and it was briefly visible. If there had been a shot inside the sleeve without the sword, that would be a mistake.

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.

Continuity mistake: Peter picks up a wooden spoon and flicks imaginary food at Rufio.

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.

Question: Does anyone know if the song Maggie sings underneath the stars is a real song? What's it called? Are the lyrics to the whole song written out anywhere? I'm talking about the one that goes "But I know I'm not alone, standing here on my own".

Answer: "When You're Alone," written by John Williams and Leslie Briccuse, was an original song and was nominated for a 1991 Oscar. It lost to Beauty and the Beast. It was also up against "Everything I Do, I do it for you" from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
