Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Hook is a 1991 Steven Spielberg-directed movie in which Robin Williams plays an older version of Peter Pan who must "become young" again to save his kids after Captain Hook kidnaps and takes them to Neverland. The pirates and some situations in this movie may frighten sensitive viewers. Two children are abducted by a villainous storybook pirate and threatened with death. The pirate Hook kills, displays comic suicidal tendencies, and tries to seduce children into hating their father. Peter Pan is kissed on the mouth by several mermaids at the same time. There is a lengthy name-calling exchange between Williams and a young boy, including phrases such as "maggotburger" and "near-sighted gynecologist," culminating in Williams screaming "Eat me!" The lead character takes a large sip of whiskey and stumbles, and there's a reference to drugs. Profanity includes "ass," "bitch," and "hell." When pirates walk through a wharf, there's a brief scene where the madam of a house of ill repute tells her prostitutes to "paint your faces, ladies!"

Sexual Content

Peter Pan is kissed on the mouth by several mermaids at the same time. When pirates walk through a wharf, there is a brief scene where the madam of a house of ill repute tells her prostitutes to "paint your faces, ladies!"

Violence

Peril. Kids screaming while trapped in a net. Lengthy sword-fighting scenes. Hook runs his blade through a valiant young boy, killing him. Slapstick violence. Tinkerbell hits Peter Pan in the head. During an impromptu baseball game among pirates, a pirate is shot and killed for trying to steal second base. Hook puts a gun to his head and threatens suicide. Gunfire.

Language

"Ass," "hell," "bitch." Euphemism: "Dead man's dinghy." A lengthy exchange of name-calling between a boy and the lead character, which includes phrases such as "near-sighted gynecologist" and culminates in Peter screaming "Eat me!" at the young boy. A father screams "Shut up!" at his kids while in the midst of a heated phone conversation.

Social Behavior

The importance of staying "young at heart." Though this is shown through various childish endeavors such as food fights and name-calling, the takeaway is the idea of maintaining a childlike innocence in your interactions with others.

Consumerism

In Tinkerbell's home, a wall is made out of a Master Card, and one of the seats is a packet of Certs breath mints.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Wine drinking. The lead character takes a large sip of whiskey and stumbles. One reference to being high on drugs.
