"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

To be honest, it has been a while since I have this flick. Anyway, somehow, the small Art house movie theater nearby was showing this movie and since it was Tim Burton’s directing debut, I was really egaer to check it out. Therefore, I saw the damned thing on the silver screen. Back in those days, Burton hadn’t direct any full length feature yet and, allegedly, it was after watching 'Frankenwe... read more

"Re-watch - Aug. 19th 30th Anniversary screening This wonderful little film has turned 30, so Drafthouse threw some party screenings for its anniversary. They served tequila sunrises on special, had a "Tequila" dance contest, and gave the film their Quote-Along treatment which meant lots of great props and the bonus of being able to recite the dialogue with the characters. The whole thing was a blast, and best of all I've now finally seen this on the big screen."

Therefore, I saw the damned thing on the silver screen. Back in those days, Burton hadn’t direct any full length feature yet and, allegedly, it was after watching 'Frankenweenie' that Paul Reubens decided to pick Burton to direct this flick. Eventually, it turned out to be a surprise success and it launched Tim Burton’s career. Anyway, I thought it was all right but nothing amazing though. Indeed, even though it was Burton’s debut, the directing was already pretty good but I thought that the main character Pee-wee Herman was seriously annoying and, above all, not” read more

" 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!"

" 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."
