    Hi,
    My third graders are about to finish the book Peter Pan and I was thinking about showing them the movie Hook (1991). I would like for them to see what could have happened to Pan, Wendy, and Hook after the book is finished. For those of you who have seen the movie, I am wondering what you think.

    I haven't watched the movie in ages, but I can't recall there being any drastically inappropriate parts to it.

    I Googled it and it is rated PG and according to the website I was reading it has the words a** and b**** in it. I don't know what your school policy is but I don't think I would show it to my students. I am not sure if the link will work but this is where I found this info https://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/hook#

    Thanks for the responses. I rented it yesterday and watched it, as it has also been a long time since I have seen it. There are a couple of inappropriate spots, at least not something I would show my students. I'm thinking I could still show the movie and fast forward through those spots without really interfering with the viewing.

    I think your reasoning is sound, but I wouldn't take a chance of showing PG movies to third graders. You only need one parent to raise a stink.

    Another option, if you really wanted to utilize the movie, is to check with your administration about perhaps sending home permission forms, maybe even with that "FF"ing noted.

    I don't think it's appropriate to take 90 minutes out of a student's day to show them a movie. Show a 5 or 10 minute clip.
