** During one of Peter's rants early in the movie, he (presumably) sarcastically wishes for somebody to blow his brains out. While the method was different, it becomes uncomfortable after Robin Williams's suicide.

** A bit of brilliance that is mentioned elsewhere on ThisVeryWiki is the fact that when Tinkerbell first appears onscreen, she's speaking English, whereas in every other version of PeterPan she "speaks" with a chiming noise, because only people from Neverland can understand her. However, the only person she speaks to outside of Neverland is Peter. That's the clue; for everything else Peter has forgotten about Neverland, he can still talk to faeries.

** That scene when Peter presents a pocket watch to his son as an heirloom. This came out three years before [[Film/PulpFiction a certain other movie]] in which Creator/ChristopherWalken took a similar setup in a ''very'' different direction.

** At the same time, if you pay attention, you can understand why it only took a few scenes for Jack to forget about his father. It's clear that spending too much time in Neverland or the 'real' world makes you start to forget, and Maggie even says as much. Hook just helped the process along.

*** Largely BoringButPractical, since anything gauzy or sparkly or shimmery would have played merry hell with the ChromaKey.

* VindicatedByCable: Although it was a critical and commercial disappointment at the time of its release, the film has done quite well on cable, as well as ABC Family/Freeform. 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.

** A great swordsman played by Creator/DanteBasco whispering "I wish I had a dad...like you" as he's [[spoiler:killed by Hook]] becomes even more of a TearJerker to modern [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Prince Zuko]] fans. (For those who aren't familiar with the series, Zuko is a WellDoneSonGuy to one of the worst dads in history.)

* 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.
