A great and slightly differant telling of the classic story! and a beautiful story of the love a Dad has for his Son, and the bond they share! Williams is one of my favorite adult actors, I've followed his career since his guest appearance on the tv show "Happy Days" as Mork from Ork, "Nanu, nanu!!"

Dustin Hoffman was great as the title character! I think he and Williams played well off each other!

also, can't forget Charlie, he was wonderful!

This movie is generally underrated. I loved it when I first saw it. It made me sad and happy, all at the same. Peter Pan is grown up and has displaced his childhood adventures from memory. He has turned in a cold-hearted father who is not able to live up to his son's expectations, which is very annoying and painful for Charlie Korsmo's character. Then Tinkerbell turns up and ol' Peter's life is turned upside down. Here the whole story starts. Hook has kidnapped his children and ol' Peter has to accept who he was and eventually starts to believe. The way he encounters the Lost Boys, how he struggles to learn how the old magic works and how he starts to turn into Peter Pan is very funny. Robin Williams is doing a great job. Dustin Hoffman, trying to control Jack, Peter's son, is diabolic and absurd at the same time.

What appealed to me so much is this: The themes of being a good father, of growing up, of accepting yourself, of magic and imagination, of endurance and courage, of love and witchcraft. At the beginning Peter's wife talks to him about how temporary a kid's wish to be together with his parents is. All too quickly kids turn away from their parents. There's only this short period when a dad is a kid's hero, and this period must not be wasted. That's something we all ought to remember. Magic is there, we just have to believe. Love and affection is there, we just have to open our hearts and let it in. At the very end Granny Wendy says: "So... your adventures are over." And Peter replies: "Oh, no. To live... to live would be an awfully big adventure."

Let's adhere to this simple message of anyone growing up. Let's preserve childhood imagination and dreams in your hearts forever. We'll be much better parents and humans if we do that.

I'm surprised at all the negative comments... but it's been a long time since I saw this movie, so I may have lost my perspective? Anyway, I really liked it when I saw it.
