*AwesomeMusic: Though the film got mixed reviews, nearly everyone agreed that John Williams delivered big time with the music score. Even the music that played during the preview appeared on the soundtrack album, with some critics calling it the best material he had ever produced at that time.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Peter at the beginning is already dedicated to his family, he just gets overwhelmed by his many commitments. Moira's treatment of him is basically emotional abuse.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Peter at the beginning is already dedicated to his family, he just gets overwhelmed by his many commitments. Moira's treatment of him is basically emotional abuse. On the other hand, telling your co-workers that you'll simply be unavailable for an hour or two isn't exactly hard, and Peter seems a little too willing to outright sacrifice family time for work.



* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** The scene in which Tinkerbell suddenly, temporarily grows to human size to remind Peter why he's in Neverland. It's even been admitted by the filmmakers to be only there because Julia Roberts wanted to act directly alongside Robin Williams for once.
** According to some accounts, [[WagTheDirector she threw a giant temper tantrum until she got what she wanted]] (There's some merit to this, as Creator/JuliaRoberts apparently owned up to her behavior later on, [[CreatorBreakdown saying her breakup with]] Creator/KieferSutherland [[CreatorBreakdown left her in a bad place.]])

It's even been admitted by the filmmakers to be only there because Julia Roberts wanted demanded to have at least one scene with another actor (having to act directly alongside Robin Williams green screen for once.

the entire film).



* 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.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Many AvatarTheLastAirbender fans watch this movie just for Dante Basco. Some ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' fans actually watch it just for Creator/JamesMadio, despite him playing a minor character.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: For some, the plot with Peter's children isn't given enough focus. Mostly because it's just one scene between Hook and Jack, and all of a sudden Jack has forgotten his father the next time we see him. The children are OutOfFocus for a good portion of the film, where Peter focuses on his training and reconnecting with the Lost Boys. This might be why many viewers find Jack UnintentionallyUnsympathetic, as seen below.



* 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...

* CriticalDissonance: Critics widely panned it, but audiences were more favorable. The critics didn't take into account that in the eighty years since Peter left Neverland, there have been lost boys every year since, including the 80s. They would've brought their slang with them.

* BrokenBase: Between people who view it as a ParvumOpus for Speilberg, and those who feel it NeedsMoreLove. A lot of the latter tends to be made up of people who liked it when they were younger.
