* {{Narm}}: The 2014 live film asking us to save Tinkerbell with Twitter. At least they didn't go so far as having Peter actually say it, but that caption pulls you right out of the moment. Fortunately but unsurprisingly, home video prints don't include such a caption.

* WTHCastingAgency: Many observers' reaction to the decision to cast Creator/ChristopherWalken as Captain Hook for the December 2014 live-theatre TV adaptation, since Walken looks ''nothing'' like the character out of makeup. Another main criticism was that Alison Williams looks too feminine for the role, looking more like a {{Tomboy}} or ButchLesbian than a boy.

* AdaptationDisplacement: It's often forgotten that it began life as a play, before being adapted into a novel (both by JM Barrie).

* BrokenBase: The movie itself has entered this in the modern age. Some still view it as a Disney classic, while others feel it's a bad adaptation. The racist portrayal of the Indians doesn't help.



* FairForItsDay:
** The movie's embarrassing portrayal of the Indian tribe was actually one of the more ''positive'' representations of American Indians at the time.
** Supervising ''Peter Pan'' animator Marc Davis once said: "[[OldShame I'm not sure we would have done the Indians if we were making this movie now. And if we had we wouldn't do them the way we did back then.]]"
** Disney has done what it can short of censoring the film. For instance, the Blu-Ray has a feature that allows the viewer to jump to each of the film's musical numbers, but "What Made the Red Man Red" is ''not'' one of the selections available.

** Tinker Bell.

to:

** Tinker Bell. As she's so small (being a fairy) she only has room for one emotion at a time. She spends far more of the movie being broken-hearted than jealous.



* {{Narm}}: The explosion that destroys the Lost Boys' lair creates a cloud so big it reaches the ship. Yet not only do Peter and Tinker Bell survive (despite being literally next to the bomb when it went off), they're both completely fine afterwards.



* SmurfetteBreakout: Tinker Bell has her own spinoff franchise.

to:

* SmurfetteBreakout: Tinker Bell has her own spinoff franchise. In a more meta sense, she's more recognisable as the Disney mascot. When one thinks of the Disney version of Peter Pan, Tink is the first thing that comes to mind.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks:
** The hardcore JM Barrie purists criticised the portrayal of Tinker Bell for her HotterAndSexier image and emphasising her ClingyJealousGirl nature.[[note]]The book and play make it clear that fairies only have room for one emotion at a time - and that Tinker Bell isn't normally so nasty and jealous. The movie doesn't mention that, just making Tink look like a {{Yandere}}.[[/note]]
** Removing the "I do believe in fairies" scene gets some criticism too. Especially since Tinker Bell inexplicably recovers from being nearly blown up.



* ValuesDissonance: Watching "What Made the Red Man Red?" today can be uncomfortable to say the least.

** To a lesser extent, the mermaids are a lot racier than one would expect from Disney. One has GodivaHair and another is only covered by her flower necklace. The [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid next time]] Disney would do mermaids, they would all wear a SeashellBra.



* AccidentalInnuendo: "Both hands." Probably doubles as {{Squick}} for many.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Slightly, the Lost Boy who arrives home late and gets adopted by Aunt Millicent instead. The actor who played him only did the one film but was surprised at his character being so remembered years later.



* NightmareFuel: The more monstrous portrayal of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA_UubjXWi0 mermaids]] and the only one to date to actually show ''the stump of Hook's severed arm''.

** Sometimes the response to the Hook/Wendy dynamic, including from several professional reviewers. WordOfGod says they didn't realize when they were shooting just how that was going to look on film.
*** Never mind that it's a pretty accurate portrayal of Wendy's attraction to Hook in the novel.
*** One reviewer didn't have a problem with that as much as with his perception of Hook's attraction to ''[[{{Lolicon}} her]]''.

** A GIF of Wendy smiling and blinking, with the subtitle "Internally screaming", is a minor meme on Tumblr.

** "Clocks" by Music/Coldplay, which was beautifully used in the trailers. This was when Coldplay was first coming out, and did a lot to get them noticed.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: If you can get past the [[FairForItsDay nowadays]]-[[TontoTalk offensive]] lyrics, ''What Makes the Red Man Red'' is definitely worth a listen for the musical accompaniment alone.
