Hook

Revealing mistake: In the shot of Tinkerbell flying across the screen with the vine (to trip up the Lost Boy twins) if you look closely you can see the wire that is attached to the vine, which is being used to pull it across. (00:52:50)

Revealing mistake: When Captain Hook reveals the blackboard with the "lesson" written on it, he underlines the word 'Hate' with chalk. However you can clearly see a faint smudged line already under the word (from a previous take) exactly where Hook draws the line. (01:05:45)

Revealing mistake: After arriving in Neverland in the bedsheet parachute made by Tinkerbell, there is a shot of Peter poking his finger up through the bedsheet to make a hole for him to rip open. However you can clearly see a small pre-made tear in the sheet for where he could easily poke his finger through and rip a hole in the fabric. (00:34:25)

Continuity mistake: Moira throws the cell phone out the window with the antenna extended and the flap opened, and it is buried by Nana this way. When Peter finds it at the end of the movie however, the antenna is down and the flap is closed.

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.

Question: Is the food fight scene completely imaginary, or are the Lost Boys actually able to will food into existence by imagining it? I always thought it was the latter growing up and we as the audience didn't see it until Peter, as the audience's proxy, saw it for himself, but any YouTube videos I watch about this movie all seem to think all the food was just in everyone's collective imaginations.

Answer: Neverland very much runs on "If you believe, it will happen" which is what Tink means during the meal when she says "If you don't imagine yourself as Peter Pan you won't be Peter Pan." So by the rules of Neverland, as soon as Peter believed it was real it was then real. The dinner was trying to teach him to believe as, in Neverland, if you don't believe it then it won't happen.
