Thank you for this commentary. This film is my favorite film adaptation of all time and one of my favorite films period. I enjoyed listening to you and some of your comments were great, I particularly liked the theory of Peter’s parents possibly not forgetting him but he forgetting to come back until it was too late.
I do wish you would do just a little bit more research on the films before you watch them. It slightly twisted my insides when you insisted Jeremy Sumpter was not American and came up with a reason why he wouldn’t have a British accent, when a simple googling up could tell you he is, indeed, American. Or that Tiger Lily isn’t white, she’s an actual Native American. Also, I wished you would say more. There were long stretches were you were silent watching the movie , and I understand that happening, I just think there were too many moments like that. Overall, good job girls! Hope you keep doing these.
Thanks for the comment! We’re a little new to commentaries, and I completely agree with your saying that we need to talk more and have less silences.
I think the American accent conversation was about Peter, not Jeremy. Like, why would the character have an American accent if Peter’s from England? I would guess they didn’t want to make a young Jeremy do an accent, or took their cue from Hook…
