Speaking of Robin Williams, I'm surprised Hook worked so well! Not the best movie ever but it's still flled with the same sort of charm an animated movie would have. I'd rather have that kind of live action take on classic characters than whatever Disney's doing lately...
I love Hook, but Dustin Hoffman's performance dominates that movie in my opinion. From the moment he appears and raises that hilarious malevolent grin, you know that he has nailed it. Bob Hoskins is also great as Smee, and I love every scene in which the two are together.
My favourite scene however is when Hook wants Smee to stop him from taking his own life, and Smee is like "Oh, not again!".
Surely there must be a treasure trove of scenes with Dustin Hoffman that ended up on the cuttingroom floor.
