When Steven Spielberg calls, you take the job. That explains the unbelievable cast of 1991's "Hook" and its $300 million box office take. But updating the tale of Peter Pan takes some serious thinking. Now that he's grown up, do you emphasize the nihilism and domestic horror? Or is this a silly kids movie?
In this episode, Ash explains the literary themes that somehow got lost along the way. Gene posits that Dustin Hoffman is the greatest comedic pirate of all time (yes, even better than Johnny Depp), and Big D makes the case for having children.
The Shat Crew also discusses Thudballing, Maggie Smith's reverse aging, Peter's womanizing, Tootles' doomed future, and how the movie did Rufio wrong.
