Tick Tock Tick Tock hum Who is afraid of this noise? The great Capitan James Hook (Dustin Hoffman). He is lonely and misses his rival Peter Pan. Peter is all grown up with a wife and two children living a normal life. When he goes to London to visit Wendy who found him a family when he had none, Hook steals his children. Peter has forgotten all about Neverland.

Tinker Bell (Julia Roberts) who still adores Peter Pan comes to the rescue and flies him back to Neverland. He cannot fly anymore because he has forgotten how. Hook is sadly disappointed to find that Peter is all grown up and has forgotten how to play, much less fight. Tinker Bell has three days to get Peter Pan back in shape. He has been gone a long time and the Lost Boys have a new leader Rufio. They do not believe that Robin Williams is Pan the Man.

My favorite scene was the food fight. It was funny and a great idea. In order to have food you have to imagine what you want to eat, and there it is. If you lose your imagination, you will just be hungry. I love the mermaids. They look so real. Tinker Bell is my favorite character because she is the cutest pixie ever. She is small, could fly and has an adorable house. Captain Hook is the best I have ever seen. He is funny yet has a mean streak. Snead (Bob Hoskins) the Captain's assistant is played perfectly and Hook would be no where without him. Steven Spielberg makes another movie which has me laughing, crying and cheering. There are the coolest sets. The great pirate ship, the Lost Boys hideout and Tinker Bell's space are all done with great detail. Everything looks real and I wanted to jump through the screen and learn how to fly and live there for a while. It looks like I always imagined it would. Second star to the right and fly on until morning. The costume designers and make-up artists are outstanding. They do a believable job of making all characters look perfect. Is Peter Pan ever going to remember how to fly so he can rescue his children from the pirates? Yes, there are a lot of pirates.

Children and adults of all ages will love this movie. The age range is 6 and up. I give this movie 5 twinkling stars because it brought a cartoon I love and made it real. Morgan Bertsch, age 8, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
