In 1991, Steven Spielberg decided to release a film he'd been working on with an all star cast. 

Dustin Hoffman, Bob Hoskins, Julia Roberts, and of course, the memorable Robin Williams, were cast in what was to be a sequel for J.M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy novel, a film called Hook.

Critics were not kind to this film; Rotten Tomatoes listed it at 4.4/10, warranting a "Rotten" review (I personally take issue with this; Rotten Tomatoes holds stoner film Knocked Up at a 90% "Fresh" rating, which is really not a good film at all), Roger Ebert felt it wasn't terribly memorable, but us? We felt it was a great film that held up!

So come join Mike and I as we discuss a favorite of ours, and say, "Screw the critics!" as we talk about Steven Spielberg's Hook.
