Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Captain Hook is bent down talking to Jack in the broken clock shop, in the first shot all of Jack's fringe is neatly sticking out from under his baseball cap, but after Hook places his hand on Jack, all of his fringe is now combed back under his cap and is not visible.

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Maggie shows Peter the paper flower that Tootles made for her, she holds it with both hands but in the next shot is only holding it with her right hand. Also the "stem" of the flower changes from being rather straight to slightly crooked. (00:18:10)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is fighting Hook in front of the crocodile clock, he uses his sword tip to fling the pirate-hat and its wig attachment off of Hook's head and it flies over and lands on one of the Lost Boys heads. When it lands on his head it is wonky. But in the next shot it is sitting on his head perfectly straight and is then wonky again in the next shot. (01:57:00)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is carrying his children away from Hook's ship to leave Neverland, Hook starts running after him, threatening to always "leave daggers with notes bearing the name Hook" and then he stops at the top of the ramp. In the closeup he is waving his hooked hand as he shouts after Peter, but in the next shot he is waving his left hand forward, holding his sword outwards. (01:53:35)

Hook (1991)

Revealing mistake: Many times during the film when characters are flying, it is clear that they are flying on a harness due to their stiff, rigid movement and also due to the bulkiness that will suddenly appear on their back. It is especially noticeable at the end when Tootles sprinkles the fairy dust over himself and flies out the nursery window. (02:09:20)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Peter crawls into Nana's doghouse to greet her (after returning from Neverland) he shakes the doghouse a little as he crawls in, causing snow to fall of its roof, which lands in the two dogbowls next to it. But in the next shot the dogbowls are now empty with no snow in them and also there is a long bone sticking out one of the bowls too. (02:06:20)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When the nursery windows are opened (as Peter and the kids return) we see an orange leaf float inside the room and land on Moira's neck. In the next shot it is on her shoulder. (02:03:00)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter gives the sword to the Lost Boy he chooses to leave in charge of Neverland, the Lost Boy holds the sword out, upright. In the next shot he is holding it down and once again lifts it upright. (02:02:15)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is leaving Neverland near the end of the film, he is talking with the Lost Boys, and they asks which one of them he should leave in charge of Neverland. As he does, he removes his sword from its sheath - twice between shots. (02:01:30)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is onboard Hook's ship fighting with a pirate below deck, he runs behind a very large globe and then pushes a large statue forward, trapping the pirate. Between shots as Peter does this the position of the large globe beside him completely changes (the curved wooden part and the actual globe, which has rotated itself). (01:50:45)

Hook (1991)

Revealing mistake: In one shot when a group of the Lost Boys are catapulted up into the air so that they can land on the side of Captain Hook's pirate ship, when they all hit the wooden pillared side it can clearly be seen to bounce as they land on it. It is possible to give some leeway on their weight making some effect - but not so much as to make the wood 'bounce' like it is made of soft material. (01:46:30)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter Pan is battling with all of the pirates on Captain Hook's ship, he continues to knock them all to the ground with his sword. As the shots change during the scene, the positions of the pirates that lay on the floor keep changing instantly after they fall. (01:44:50)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter Pan is fighting all the pirates on Hook's ship, we then see all of the Lost Boys swing across to the ship on ropes, after Peter shouts "Bangerang!" As all the Lost Boys swing over; some of the same boys swing over twice between the shots. (01:46:05)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter flies up to find Tinkerbell in her lantern house, after he opens up the clock-face door and starts asking her what's wrong, as the scene progresses, Tink's arms keep moving from either being up by her face, to in her lap - and then when she turns around to face Peter, the position of her hands change from where they rest on her legs/knees.

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Smee is bent over at the water tank that has Hook's toy ships in it, in one shot as we see the shot with Hook's back facing the camera, Smee's bandana ties both hang in front of his shoulder. In the following shot the ties are now differently positioned, with one folded back over his shoulder. (01:00:05)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter walks into the clearing at the Lost Boys hideout, he walks forward and steps his left leg into a vine tip which is laying on the floor. This causes the vine to wrap around his ankle and pull him up into the air. However as he is pulled up, the vine is now wrapped around his RIGHT leg. (00:49:45)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: In the flashback when Peter is remembering how he lost his Mother and got to Neverland, there is a scene where Peter is a baby and the stroller that he is in is blown down a hill by the wind. Between the three shots in this scene, the stroller keeps getting closer to the tree that it is sitting beside - even though the wind is blowing in the other direction! (01:32:10)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: Peter is hoisted out from the sea by the mermaids and then when he reaches the top of the mountain, he rolls down some rocks and through a small stream and then he finishes by sliding down a large area of snow. However at the end of it all, he is extremely dry and clean considering the previous ordeals. (00:48:50)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter steps out onto the ships deck (before Hook comes out and makes his speech), Tinkerbell is with him and she lands on the top of a barrell. On top of the barrell is a glass bottle laying down, which between shots (as Tink lands on the barrell), changes which direction it is pointing. In addition the large piece of rope sitting next to it differs in position as well. (00:38:00)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When the Lost Boys bring the large black pot over to the dinner table and set it down in front of Peter, in the first shot it sits nice and flat on the table, but in the next shot it is sitting wonky, with a plate half-under it. In the next shot it is back to its original position. Additionally the items around the pot differ. (01:09:10)
