Hook (1991)

‘Have to fly, have to fight, have to crow, have to save Maggie, have to save Jack… Hook is back.’ It’s time to take flight with Ramblin once more as we head for the second star on the right and straight on till morning to discuss Steven Spielberg’s take on the Peter Pan legend - 1991’s ‘HOOK’, starring Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman and Julia Roberts  - which asks the question, what if Peter Pan grew up? It would be bad form not to have a guest join the Jolly Ramblin crew for such a voyage, which is why we are pleased to welcome writer, journalist, marketing manager and Hook super-fan, Sarah Cook (@CookieNScreen) aboard the pod. Together, we chart the map of development, discuss Spielberg’s own apathy towards the final product, the fairy dust of nostalgia, screaming housekeepers and Maggie Smith’s horny eyes. So, don’t be a boil-dripping beef, fart-sniffing bubble butt - think happy thoughts, hit play and join us on our adventure to Neverland. Bangarang! You can follow Sarah on Twitter @CookieNScreen and can find her writing at moviesonweekends.com, Hey You Guys and Film Stories.
