Product Description


Former animator Tim Burton (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Batman, Mars Attacks!) made his feature directorial debut with this delightful comedy, coscripted by the late Phil Hartman (who also appears briefly as a reporter). Wisely, they keep the story simple so as to concentrate on the characters: Pee-wee's most prized possession, his shiny new bicycle, is stolen, and he sets off on an obsessive cross-country journey, determined to recover it. Pee-wee's awkward and childish attempts to be cool and mature ("I meant to do that!!") are hysterical, as when he tells his girlfriend (Elizabeth Daly): "There's things about me you don't know, Dottie. Things you wouldn't understand. Things you couldn't understand. Things you shouldn't understand.... I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel." Look for Saturday Night Live vet Jan Hooks in a hilarious bit as a tour guide at the Alamo. And beware of Large Marge! --Jim Emerson

Ce que j'aime est rien que la comédie avec l'acteur Paul Reubens .. En plus, il y a un sous-titre car je suis une personne sourde c'est pourquoi .. Donc, merci pour le film !

Old film remastered in Bluray and quite crisp. Pee wee Herman is ridiculous from the start so it was a good buy!

Because everyone needs to own this movie. Just finished watching it and actually forgot how awesome it was! Can be a little scary for little kids and little kids at heart but all around a true family favorite!

5.0 out of 5 stars Will reduce you to fits of laughter on the floor Jan. 16 2011
This film may not be for everyone, but it is for everyone that 'gets it'. Tim Burton was not out to make one of those tremendously stupid films involving a really dumb guy and the antics that he gets into wherever he goes, although it appears to be something like that from far away. What he and Reubens created was actually the crazy adventures of a somewhat wet-behind-the-ears and sensitive manchild looking for his stolen bike across the American southwest. The humour doesn't not come from all the ridiculous things that happen to him, rather it comes from his reaction to the (somewhat) normal, if unlikely, situations he gets into. This is the genius of Paul Reubens, Pee-Wee has very simple needs and wants, but his reactions to his situations are always cheeky (and a little dark).

Hence, if you can attach yourself to this character early on in the film, you will be rolling on the floor with laughter the entire length of it. Pee-Wee has this unrelenting way of making you feel like you should be as happy as him. And that is a good film in my book, one that makes you want to be a more positive person.

PS He will make you think that your bike is a two-bit piece of crap compared to his. I really want that bike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pee Wee Herman is one funny man Jan. 2 2010
I think this movie is a wonderful movie. That Pee Wee Herman is one humorous man. That movie made me laugh so much. The missing bike part gave me quite a shock when Pee Wee freaked out. What made me laugh the most is Pee Wee Herman tried to wrestle Mark Holden and said "Tell me where it is before I loose patience with you!" The trick gum part also made me laugh like crazy. Kids would love to watch such a movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars I remember! Sept. 18 2008
By SlyFox
This bring back memories. I went to see it in theater when I was in my early 20s with friends and we laughed so much.... but the Lage Marge scene was the best... All the girls in the theater screamed and started to laugh right away. Now they are coming out with it again in November 2008.. YAY! I want it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A one-of-a-kind classic comedy July 18 2004
By A Customer
It is really such a shame about what happened to actor Paul Reubens and his alter-ego Pee-wee Herman. This is an absolutely delightful, one-of-a-kind classic comedy. The follow-up film, Big Top Pee Wee, while it has it's moments, can't possibly even begin to compare. As one film critic said of this film at the time it was released, just leave your sanity at the door and enjoy it!!
