PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE (1985, 91 minutes, Rated PG) – Tim Burton’s classic! “Everything about Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, from its toy-box colors to its superb, hyper-animated Danny Elfman score to the butch-waxed hairdo and wooden-puppet walk of its star and mastermind is pure pleasure,” wrote Salon.com’s Stephanie Zacharek. Variety Magazine compared Paul Reubens’ performance to Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton. Pee-wee (Paul Reubens) has his bike stolen and journeys across the country to find it. He encounters bizarre travellers and strange happenings along the way, and he never loses his sense of humor. The film is pure joy. It is about the fun of having fun and it rides off of the genius of Tim Burton as well as the limitless energy that Reubens brings to the character of Pee Wee. The film topped Roger Ebert’s list of Guilty Pleasures in 1987.
