Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Rufio and the Lost Boys are circling Peter (after he has dropped in their hideout), Rufio is standing in front of him brandishing his sword. In one shot he holds the sword out above him but in the next shot he is holding it down by his side. (00:51:45)

Hook (1991)

Revealing mistake: When Captain Hook reveals the blackboard with the "lesson" written on it, he underlines the word 'Hate' with chalk. However you can clearly see a faint smudged line already under the word (from a previous take) exactly where Hook draws the line. (01:05:45)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Moira grabs the phone from Peter's hands and throws it out the window, as the phone falls to the ground and then when it lands, the length at which the phone's antenna is sticking out keeps changing from shot to shot. (00:14:50)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: From when Smee and Captain Hook are inspecting Peter's scar onboard the ship, to later in the film when the Lost Boys are painting Peter's bare chest, the proportions of the scar (size, shape, location) are completely different. (00:42:25 - 01:06:00)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Moira and Peter are at Wendy's beside, as she rests after being shaken at her honourary dinner, we can see a book sitting on the bedside table and it is resting at a crooked angle. But when Wendy askes Peter to hand it over to her, the camera zooms in for a closeup of the book which is now sitting at a perfectly straight and neat angle. (00:26:10)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter walks onboard the deck before Captain Hook comes out, he is wearing an eyepatch, pirate hat and a purple cloak. In the first shot the purple cloak he is wearing is pulled up over his mouth but in the immediate next shot the cloak is now down around his neck. (00:38:00)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: Hook has Jack and Maggie caught in a large rope net which dangles from the ship's mast. When the net is hoisted up and Hook tells Peter he must fly up and touch their hands, in the wideshot we see the large rope net swinging back and forth in the air. But in the next shot as it focuses on a shot of Jack and Maggie in the net, it is at a complete stand still and is not swinging at all. (00:44:25)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is sitting at the foot of the bed, talking to Moira about how he has to take the phonecall (as the phone rings in his hand), between shots he differs from having the phone either held down in his lap to up by his face. (00:14:40)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Captain Hook walks across the ship and up to the pirate that bet against him finding Peter Pan, we see Peter standing to the side (between the pirate and Hook) and he moves the eyepatch that he is wearing across from his right eye to his left eye. As he does this, the eyepatch strap falls off the right spectacle. But in the next shot the eyepatch strap has now moved back up and is resting perfectly across the glass frame of the right spectacle. (00:40:20)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene at the school play as the shots change from wide views of the audience, to closeups of Moira and the children, the positions of everyone sitting around them continues to change. In addition the people standing up in the background keep moving, and in some shots we can see people standing with camcorders, but then in the next shots there is nobody with a camcorder visible.

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Tinkerbell is first visiting Peter in the nursery, she causes him to sneeze which results in her being blown into the doll's house. In this shot, the chair that is sitting next to the doll's house has a teddy bear on it which is laying flat on it's front. But in a following shot you can see that the teddy bear on the chair is now propped up nice and neatly, and additionally there are now extra items sitting next to the bear. (00:31:45)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Peter on the ship, he stuffs the eyepatch and glasses Peter's wearing into his mouth to act like a gag. Then when Hook removes them from his mouth, we see that he takes the eyepatch from out his mouth twice between angles. (00:42:35)

Hook (1991)

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera zooms into the hook-shaped window-lock opening itself, you can see the faint reflection of the camera and its operator in the silver plate that the lock is attached to. (00:21:45)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: After Smee introduces Captain Hook for his appearance on the ship (to make his speech to his fellow pirates), as he emerges from the door he leaves it wide open behind him. But as the scene continues and Hook is talking, pacing back and forth, etc., how wide open the door is keep changing (from wide open, half shut or practically closed). (00:38:30)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: Peter is underwater, bound with ties around his hands but then three mermaids swim to him and help him. However the amount of glitter that is spread on the mermaids differs; this is especially evident with the first bluehaired mermaid that kisses him - look at the amount on her hands as she kisses Peter and rests her hands on his shoulders.

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: In the airplane, Jack begins to throw his baseball against the window, to show his Dad (Peter) that it is thick and will not break. When he does this, it causes the oxygen masks to be dropped down in front of them. Between shots the positions of the masks and the straps wrapped around them differs. In addition in the first shot Peter grabs them to stop them from swinging about, but in the next shot his hands are instantly back in his lap. (00:07:40)

Hook (1991)

Continuity mistake: After just arriving in Neverland, Peter comes across a gang of Pirates that take a fancy to the leather shoes he is wearing. A couple of the pirates in the gang bend down so they are almost to the floor, but as the shots differ they continue to change from either being bent over / standing up straight. (00:35:25)

Hook (1991)

Revealing mistake: After arriving in Neverland in the bedsheet parachute made by Tinkerbell, there is a shot of Peter poking his finger up through the bedsheet to make a hole for him to rip open. However you can clearly see a small pre-made tear in the sheet for where he could easily poke his finger through and rip a hole in the fabric. (00:34:25)
