Hook is overwhelmed by a screenplay heavy with complicated exposition, by what are, in effect, big busy nonsinging, nondancing production numbers and some contemporary cant about rearing children and the high price paid for success.

No matter how much cash Hook earns, it will take more than pixie dust to fly this overstuffed package into our dreams.

Big, splashy, energetic, one-size-fits-all Hollywood entertainment.

The exposition is so underlined and re-underlined, you could teach yourself to fly waiting for something to happen.

Here we get the uncanny suspicion that Hook was written and directed according to the famous recipe of the country preacher who told the folks what he was going to tell them, told them, and then told them what he had told them.
