In Which Natalie Saw Hook For The First Time

I've written about how I like to have movie nights with the kids when my husband is gone.

This time, we watched Hook.

Natalie takes her viewing area seriously and brought down most of her bed.



And added a carpet walkway.

Tommy had already seen the movie. Natalie had not. She knows all about Peter Pan and Captain Hook though. And Tinkerbell, of course.

But before I get into the movie, did you guys know this?


The Goblin King as Hook? I'm not sure I see it.

Anyway...

Natalie was concerned because Peter forgot everything. 

"Will he ever remember again? What is going to happen to his children?" 

She thought the Lost Boys were going to kill him.

"Does the movie end here?" she asked.

"No, stupid. That would make no sense," Tommy grumbled.

Natalie whacked him with one of her many pillows. "Don't call me stupid, you rude boy!"

"No name calling. Let's watch!" 

Natalie was like, "Phew! Someone likes Peter," when this happened:


She wanted to have a food fight when this happened:


(I said no.)

Natalie liked when Peter remembered and began to fly. 

"He's in his green outfit!" she shouted happily.


She was not happy when (spoiler alert) Rufio was killed. 


"He's not really dead IS HE?" 

"I'm afraid so."

But she WAS happy when Peter's children were saved. And when Captain Hook was eaten by the crocodile. "He deserved it for being so mean!"

I love this movie. If you haven't seen it, you're probably super young, and I feel incredibly old.

Bangarang!

But that's not my favorite line in the movie.

No.

This is:



I always crack up and when it's snowing outside, I think of Toodles shouting his line and slamming the door. 

When the movie was over, I asked Natalie if she liked it. 

"Yes. But Maggie's happy thought was her Mommy. No offense, but mine would be Daddy."



Somehow, I'm not surprised.

  1. This is bringing back all kinds of memories! I remember that food fight was my ultimate dream. I never did get to be in a fight like that.

  2. I love that movie but then again I love Robin Williams in general. Hubby and I watched Patch Adams for the umpteenth time the other night.
    And yeah, Goblin King definitely wouldn't be right for Captain Hook. Argh now I have that song in my head. You remind me of a babe//What babe...

  4. I love this movie. I haven't shown it to either of my kids and have just now realized that I need to do so.

    And you've gotta give Natalie points for honesty even if the truths stings just a little. :-)

  11. One of my favorite movies, always.
    My favorite line is from Tink but I didn't Google it first. I think it's something like, "In between being asleep and awake. That's where I'll always love you."

  12. Aww, she's so cute! I'm just glad someone's watching a movie from the 90s...and it isn't a remake of a movie from the 90s! All these remakes of movies from my 20s are starting to make me feel old.

  13. Ahh definitely a classic movie!! I hated the part when Rufio was killed also....I remember watching it with my dad and getting so upset about that part (I may have started throwing a fit telling my dad he HAD to go change that part of the movie!) That was adorable what your little one said about her happy thought!
