Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (1985)

Though Paul Reubens certainly invests himself into the high-step/twisty ’50’s shenanigans it’s difficult to fault him or Burton’s cartoon aesthetic on, we have no problem doing so the gags – a madcap, dizzying nerdfest of juvenile, inane, otiose humor from the go-to bin of lowbrow culture. 4/10.

Plot Synopsis: 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.
