"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

Tim Burton Films - Ranked and Why (19 movies items)

" Extremely silly, yet equally hilarious. Pee-wee's Big Adventure is so full of charm, wit and fun that it genuinely affects its viewers with its irresistible goofy nature. Pure entertainment."

" even though i didin´t grew up with the character of Pee Wee (the show didin´t air where i live) for some reason it still seems like such a familiar character to me, and what that means is that i had a lot of fun watching this movie, not to talk about my poor ribs from laughing so much, hopefully i will be abble to say the same for the new one that is coming out Score: Awesome!"

(truly worth the mess, Pee-wee ;)) "

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"Jan Hooks improvised the dialogue for her scenes as the Alamo tour guide. The Drive-in sequence was filmed at the Studio Drive In, formerly located in Culver City CA. The Studio was built in the 1930s, and was the first Drive-in Theatre constructed in California. It served as a set for several films, including Grease. It was closed in 1993 and demolished in 1998. No trace of this Drive-in remains. The car that Pee-wee gets picked up in by Mickey is a 1959 Edsel Corsair convertible. When Pee"

A Complete review of Tim Burton's work (18 movies items)

" Cast : Paul Rubens What was it about? Eccentric man-child Pee-Wee Herman embarks on the big adventure of his life across the US mainland, as he sets out to find his beloved bike, when it is stolen in broad daylight. My two cents: Allegedly, it is after watching 'Frankenweenie' that Paul Reubens decided to pick Tim Burton to direct this flick. It was a surprise success and the rest is of course history. I thought it was allright but nothing amazing though. Indeed, the directing was "
