* 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.

* HollywoodPudgy: Peter keeps getting described as fat by the Neverland denizens (save for Thudbutt, who's the BigFun of the Lost Boys) when he first arrives. He magically sheds a lot of it for the fight.

*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.]])

* 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...
