Different than the T.V. show that would later spawn from this film. It's actually more entertaining for grown-ups. I found it a little more enjoyable, as an adult.

I have a big soft spot for this movie. It's so weird and wonderful at times, as most Burton films are. At other times, it is shrewd and sarcastic. The childlike joy of Pee-wee is contagious and on full exhibit in this film.

I don't remember much about this movie, other than that stupid red bike. But, I do remember kinda liking it.

Awww...come one everyone. This movie is silly, but its Tim Burton's first film and it really showcases how insanely brilliant the high art of Pee Wee's Playhouse was. We all should just get off our high horses and watch the movies that we can't stand for the sole purpose to convince ourselves we're not as critical as we want to be.

Review - Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985)

After his eccentric bike was stolen, Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens) set off on a nation-wide search for his beloved transportation. Pee-wee comes to life on the big screen in “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.”

In director Tim Burton’s debut feature film, he shows just what he can do as a director, though he definitely did get better over time. The movie is a bizarre, absurdist comedy that still feels real to an extent.

Another debut in this movie is composer Danny Elfman, who got his first big break here. It’s also not his best score, but it’s just as powerful for his career as the movie was for Burton.

There’s not really much to say about “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” other than “See it.” It’s a funny movie with lots of humorous acting and writing that is hard to resist.

Acting: 8/10
