Two classic family movies packaged together in one set. Please note: Both of these movies are on separate DVDs in one case. NOT two separate cases. Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman are excellent in Hook. Always a fun movie to watch and be reminded not to grow up and act too old! The Indian in the Cupboard is one of my personal favorites. Not as popular a movie, but such a wonderful adventure. It's packed full of all kinds of emotions centering around friendship. A great movie find.
Packaging these two films together was an interesting marketing choice. I really could see Hook and Jumanji together versus these two, since Indian in the Cupboard is a different sort of film all together. Hook and Jumanji are true kid action films, and Robin Williams and his cast are adorable (although I think there are one or two sort of bad words in Hook, easily lost in the fray). Indian in the Cupboard is truly a remarkable film about a darling boy whose heart is captured, like yours will be, by the little plastic figurine who magically comes to life by being put in an old cupboard. The values taught in this film transcend the best sword fight, and the relationship built on trust and respect the boy and the Indian develop are the real story here...the ending is just as poignant as any grown-up classic and will leave you with a few tears. Can't recommend enough...
Two great movies based on beloved children's books. "Hook" (a modern telling of a now grown up Peter Pan) and "The Indian in the Cupboard" (a story about one boy and his life-changing magic cupboard). If you love a good story that's also suitable for families and people of all ages, you can't go wrong here.
our children love these two movies and like watching them over and over… this is a good deal for the money and if you are trying to teach your children spanish or french you could change the language settings in the menu bar….the fact that they want to watch it over again tells us they have got to be learning something!
