In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a big blockbuster whose director struggles to like it, and a smaller Jerry Bruckheimer production.

Hook was expected to be a shoo-in hit at the end of 1991. But why does Steven Spielberg struggle to like it, and why did it overrun so much?

2000’s Coyote Ugly, meanwhile, saw Jerry Bruckheimer recruiting a fair few movie debutants – and an infamous Kevin Smith rewrite.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
