** Even the film's detractors tend to praise Bob Hoskins' Smee.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Peter's family flies to London on Pan Am... which went out of business a week ''before'' the film premiered. Pan Am would've still been on its last legs when the film was under production, so it counts. (Spielberg declared he didn't want to remove it as the sole reason for the brand inclusion was the VisualPun regarding "Pan")

** After this movie with its fair share of evil lawyer jokes, guess what Charlie Korsmo grew up to be?

* MagnificentBastard: There's a reason the movie isn't called "Pan". Hook gets exactly what he wants; his old archenemy back in Neverland, ready for the final duel and the climactic war between the Lost Boys and the pirates. He also uses the time it takes for Peter to get his memories back to manipulate Jack into thinking he's Hook's son, scoring the ultimate revenge on Peter when he comes to save Jack and finds him standing next to Hook wearing an identical pirate outfit. And through it all, thanks to Dustin Hoffman's stellar performance, Hook manages it with humor, charisma, and style.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: On the one hand, Jack is way too over the top about his father's supposed neglect. This is especially clear with the baseball game, where Peter makes every effort to be there, and still sends a co-worker to tape it, clearly showing that he does care about it. On the other, Jack, being still a child, doesn't necessarily understand that his father does unconditionally love him, forming a weak spot that Hook can exploit to turn him to his side.
* VindicatedByCable: The film has done quite well on cable, as well as ABC Family. As with many other films, it's referenced occasionally in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' - complete with Rufio's death -- which has also helped renew interest in it. Then Creator/DanteBasco himself started reading it. It also has certain nostalgic value for the 90s kids who grew up with it.

Added DiffLines:

* LawfulNeutral: Peter Pan. The premise of the movie is that he left Neverland, got married, had children, forgot who he used to be, and became a boring lawyer. When he's forced to return to Neverland, his completely opposite attitude from [[CloudCuckooland everyone there]] and [[TheWonderland the whole place itself]] makes his stay extremely awkward, until, of course, he regains his memories and former personality, depicted as very much ChaoticGood.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassDecay: In the beginning of the movie the once legendary Peter Pan has become a pudgy, middle-age man who does not remember his adventures and is also a complete Jerkass. [[HesBack He gets better]].

** Creator/DanteBasco and Creator/RobinWilliams both working on this film is nowadays interesting to see to some considering that Dante would later voice Prince Zuko in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and General Iroh in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' and Robin's daughter Zelda Williams would later voice Kuvira in the last seasons of ''The Legend of Korra''.

* HilariousInHindsight: Glenn Close has a cameo as a ''male'' pirate (the one that gets thrown in the "Boo Box" just before Peter first confronts Hook). Cut to 2011, when Close plays a [[SweetPollyOliver woman masquerading as a male butler]] in ''Albert Nobbs'', a role that got her nominated for a Best Actress Oscar.

* HoYay: Bob Hoskins said that he portrayed Smee's character as though he was in a homosexual relationship with Hook. The novelization by Creator/TerryBrooks includes a few bonus bits with Hook and Smee that don't come right out and say it, but definitely run with the idea that they're far closer than Captain and crewman.

** Due to Disney's version of Tinker Bell being the most prolific version that everyone thinks of, one would think that a live-action one played by Julia Roberts would be just as adorable. Unfortunately, [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-LRXLQ4MUjhs/UBwV4kicwsI/AAAAAAAABCk/4D5u1oAKTgY/s1600/tumblr_lanfgj9PjX1qztubyo1_500.png the costume she wears in the movie]] has a very dull, RealIsBrown vibe to it, along with scruffy hair that looks more in place with a Hobbit movie than with Peter Pan. According to Thomas Tulak, who played one of the Lost Boys, an earlier outfit was a blonde wig and a blue sequinned dress - and he recalls her storming out of her dressing room onto the set to complain about it.
