For a movie going on lucky 13 years old, it's still as fun to watch as it was the first time I saw it in the theaters. Peter Banning is a well off American lawyer married to the great grandaughter of Wendy Moira Angela Darling...Mora Darling. He also has two kids, Jack and Maggie. However, supporting for his family has become a full time job and as such he's forgotten all about having an imagination, playing with his kids, spending time with his family, and enjoying his life. And in the middle of all of this, there's Capt. James S. Hook, life long enemy of Peter Pan (Banning, though unbeknownst to him).

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, But a little short on the DVD Extras, Feb. 18 2004
Focus films may be known for distributing films that are outside the formulaic holiwood system, but they're not so great on packing the disc with extras that most people want from a movie that's on the academy awards top honor list (Best Actor, Actress, Director, Screenplay (original), and Film).
Since my fellow reviewer above has talked at great length about the beauty and grace (as well as plot) of this film, I'm going to focus on the DVD EXTRAS and the PURCHASE VALUE of this dvd.

Planet of the Apes: 35th Anniversary Collector's E&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Charlton Heston
As for the DVD...I question some of the choices that were made by 20th century fox. For anyone who doesn't know the film, "Planet of the Apes" is based off of the Pierre Boulle novel, also author of the acclaimed The Bridge Over the River Kwai. In the film, Taylor (Charlton Heston), the captain of an expedition crew in deep space, is about to set the ship on a direct course home and put himself into hyper sleep. However, as he goes to sleep, something goes terribly wrong and the space ship crash lands on an unknown world 2000 years in the future "give or take a decade". Now, everything that Taylor believes in is about to get tested as his very search for something… Read more
