Pee-wee's Big Adventure
Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens), an eccentric child-like man, loves his red bicycle and will not sell it to his envious neighbor, Francis (Mark Holton). While Pee-wee visits his friend Dottie (Elizabeth Daily), the bike is stolen. Thinking his bike is at the Alamo, Pee-wee sets off on a trip, where he meets many remarkable people, including waitress Simone (Diane Salinger) and a motorcycle gang. Eventually, Pee-wee discovers that his bike is being used in a movie and tries to recover it.

One of the great characters of the 80's, right up there with Mr. T and Max Headroom. The innocent Pee Wee is the 80's precursor to the 90's Forrest Gump, where good fortune follows sincerity even without a shred of intelligence. Whereas Forrest did it all to win his lovely Jenny, Pee Wee's Adventures revolve around the search for his beloved bicycle. Giant doughnuts, dinosaurs, truck stops, fortune tellers, bow ties, and the Alamo all play their unique parts in this absurdist comedy.October 22nd, 2012 · Details
Completely silly and obnoxious. Unless you are really bored, don't watch this. Even if you are really bored, still consider doing something else.July 27th, 2012 · Details
