Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is in the old burnt hideout, talking with Tinkerbell (just before he remembers his happy thought and re-learns to fly) he walks over to a small barrell that is covered in items (a glass bottle, rubble, scraps of paper and photos). Between the wideshot and then the closeup of the items sitting on the barrell, the items positions completely change and also some have vanished. (01:30:35)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is giving the lesson to Jack and Maggie about why their parents hate them, he starts by underlining the word 'Hate' on a blackboard he has. However a few shots later the line that he drew to underline the word is now completely different. The line is longer and thicker. (01:05:45 - 01:06:40)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: During the lesson that Hook is giving to Jack and Maggie about their parents hating them, the items on Jack and Maggie's desk (most noticabely the large white feathery quills and the large sheets of paper) change position a few times. (01:06:30)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is hit by the flying baseball that knocks him out, when he falls to the ground he has nothing attached to the large black belt that goes around his waist. But in the very next shot there is a small brown pouch that is tied to the belt, to his right side. (01:28:10)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Smee gives Hook his nightcap drink, Hook takes it in his hand and holds it at the top of the goblet so that it is hidden under his hand. But in the very next shot he is holding it by the handle and the whole goblet is now visible with a small black umbrella sticking out the top. Additionally, the position of the small umbrella that sits in the goblet changes a few times. (01:02:40)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is sitting in his chair with the vanity tables at either side of him (with several mirrors on each table), we can see that there are two pots on each vanity table. Each pot has a small grey powder-ball sitting on top of it, which has red ribbons attached to it. During the scene the balls/ribbons differ in position and then at the very end of the scene (when Hook begins laughing at his plan to make Jack and Maggie love him) both of the grey powder balls have vanished.

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter first enters the Lost Boys' urban-style playground, he is suddenly startled by Lost Boys on skateboards that begin to circle him. But in the next shot focusing on one Lost Boy dunking a basketball through the hoop, you can see Peter in the background, only now the Lost Boys that were skating around him have disappeared.

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Smee about the subject of Peter Pan (as Smee collects food from the table), Hook holds up his hooked hand and stares at it as he is talking. As the shots differ from wide views of the room to closeups of Hook, the lace cuff that surrounds his hooked hand keeps differing in its position. (00:59:20)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When the little Lost Boy begins to "inspect" Peter by tugging at his face and whatnot, in the first shot as he pulls Peter's cheeks the bracelet that he has around his wrist has a feather attached to it which is at the top of his wrist. In the next shot the bracelet has suddenly rotated, as the feather is now at the bottom (under his wrist). (00:56:10)

Hook (1991)

Revealing mistake: In the shot of Tinkerbell flying across the screen with the vine (to trip up the Lost Boy twins) if you look closely you can see the wire that is attached to the vine, which is being used to pull it across. (00:52:50)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: At the imaginary dinner with Peter and the Lost Boys; when Rufio throws his plate across the table at Peter, in this shot and the next few shots that follow, the large black pan that sits on the table in front of Peter keeps moving closer then further away from his plate. (01:11:10)

Hook (1991)

Audio problem: When Rufio withdraws his sword from the leather pouch he has tied around his leg (as he brings it out to brandish against Peter) it makes the sound of metal being withdrawn from a metal sheath, but the pouch is leather and couldn't allow the sword to make that sound effect. (00:54:40)

Hook (1991)

Revealing mistake: When Smee stops Hook from his suicide attempt, the gun is accidentally shot off and the bullet hits one of the small model ships in Hook's little water tank. When it shows the ship (on fire) sinking down under the water, you can see the small rod devices that are actually pulling the ship down into the water. (01:01:05)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter first walks into the clearing of the Lost Boys hideout, there is a vine hanging from the tree that is touching the floor (which Peter steps into) and the vine has excess which is curled up in a large pile on the ground. But when it shows Peter stepping into the vine, it is only curled round in one circle - not the large pile it was beforehand. (00:49:40)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: After Peter has been shot with the goo arrows (which stain his shirt) after they hit his chest, in the very next shot the positions of the arrows on his chest have changed to different places than they were previously. (00:52:35)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Peter on the ship, he is wearing his eyeglasses as he examines him and his scar, to see if it really is Peter Pan. But as soon as he turns and walks away from Peter his eyeglasses have vanished from his face. (00:42:55)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Maggie are in the large rope net that is hanging from the mast of Hook's ship, they are reaching out of the net trying to grab for their Dad's hands. In one shot Maggie is reaching both of her arms out of the net but in the immediate overhead shot she is only stretching one arm out. (00:45:15)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Smee is standing on the stairs, making his introduction speech for Captain Hook's entrance, the bandana ties that hang down on his back change position a few times, most noticeable when he turns around to walk back up the the top of the staircase. (00:38:10)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When the mermaids are saving Peter, the second redheaded mermaid that swims over to him grabs his waist and kisses him. But in the very next facial closeup her hands are suddenly up by his neck. (00:48:20)
