I suggested 'Hook', which has long been a favorite of mine. I enjoyed every part of that movie; the characters, the music, the swashbuckling, the insult war, the fat jokes… all of it. Upon sharing this, my friends softly suggested to me that my childhood was a complete waste since this was a horrible movie.
After the ensuing scuffle caused by my vapid disbelief, they ensured me that it had gotten panned by critics. After some research I was shocked to find that they were right! What was wrong with these critics, this is one of the greatest movies of all time as far as I was concerned!! Had they, like Peter, gotten too old to see the magic? (Oh yeah, I just went there)."
