Pee-wee's Big Adventure

"Excellent"

Pee-wee's Big Adventure Review


Arguably Tim Burton's strangest film, about a now iconic guy who never managed to grow up. The love of his life is his pimped-out red bicycle, and when it gets stolen, it sends Pee-wee (Paul Reubens) on the biggest adventure of his life, from the plains of the midwest to the lots of Hollywood. Rent this film, and tell 'em Large Marge sent ya!
