"I wouldn't sell my bike for all the money in the world. Not for a hundred million, trillion, billion dollars!"

Pee-wee's Big Adventure is Tim Burton's first feature length movie...and it is FANTASTIC!

From start to finish the film is a total riot. There are stacks of visual gags that had me in stitches, and a great script that also had me in stitches for every secon... read more

"Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" is completely ridiculous, but...completely awesome. It had been many years since I last watched this, but I once again thoroughly enjoyed it. Paul Reubens is a comic genius, paired with Tim Burton, Phil Hartman, and Danny Elfman, I don't know how anyone couldn't enjoy it, and get a few laughs out of it. I am very much looking forward to the new Pee-Wee movie that's on ... read more

Ok.... I did really really enjoy this movie for some reason. It's funny, it's a complete family movie. So it must not be taken to seriously. Otherwise YOU will spoil it.

25 From 85: My Favorite Films Of 1985 (25 movies items)

" Pee-wee's first big adventure is featured in his big screen debut, aptly titled "Pee-wee's Big Adventure. And no, this movie's title is not referring the "big adventure" that landed him in jail and thus made this playhouse dwelling man-child infamously kinda creepy. But maybe it's that slight touch of creepiness that seems to add a bit of edge to this quirky cross country comedy about a "boy" and his bike. "

"Re-watch - Jan. 11th The kiddo wanted to watch a movie on this particular afternoon, and at the time I had no plans of seeing a movie any time soon. Originally I was going to introduce her to E.T., but it was a beautiful day outside & thus I opted for a shorter film & went with this one. Now, she used to be obsessed with Pee-wee's Playhouse, but I can't recall the last time she watched it & so I wasn't sure how well she'd enjoy this one (especially since she typically doesn't get much into live"

My Favorite Movies (31 movies items)

"Rating: PG Run Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes Genres: Adventure, Comedy Summary: Pee-Wee Herman's bicycle is missing, and he suspects that it was stolen. Pee-Wee travels across the country to get his beloved bike back, meeting many colorful characters along the way. My opinion: Not bad for Tim Burton's first feature-length film. Pee-Wee's Big Adventure is also his best adventure. Rank: Silver"
