This surprise hit showcases nerdy superstar Pee-wee Herman (Emmy-nominee Paul Reubens - "Blow," TV's "Murphy Brown") in a mad-cap comedy-adventure about a unique "rebel" who takes to the road to track down the kidnappers of his beloved bicycle. Pee-wee Herman is "a genuine cult comic hero," declares Joel Siegel. The Hollywood Reporter raves that this "isn't just the funniest movie of the year; it's one of the funniest movies ever." Special appearances by Emmy-nominee Jan Hooks ("Saturday Night Live"), Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Morgan Fairchild ("TV's "Friends," TV's "Hotel"), Emmy and Golden Globe-winner James Brolin ("Catch Me If You Can," TV's "Hotel") and rock group Twisted Sister. Directed by Academy Award-nominee Tim Burton ("Tim Burton's Corpse Bride," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"), written by Reubens and Emmy-winner Phil Hartman ("Saturday Night Live," "NewsRadio").

PEE-WEES Big Adventure is the best movie I've ever seen

TheMartinator 2015-05-03
This movie was good, it wan't the best movie I've seen. It was funny and it had some cool action scenes. This is a movie I would see every once in a while.

Grew up watching this film. At twenty seven years old it still stands as one of my favorite films of all time. Humor and plot that gels with kids as well as adults. Not too many films do that, this one does it with perfection. Awesome.

This is the best movie of the 80's!!!!!!! It is full of very funny lines my favorite is the " Amazing Larry" one!!!!!! If you haven't watched it watch it , if it has been a while you will fall in love with Pee-wee all over again. Just tell them Large Marg sent you!!!!!!!!

Great classic from my youth but still a good watch now and again. And iTunes it was released in 1985 not 1997!

Seriously, one of mine and my brother's favorite movies of all time.

funkypimp 2012-08-13
You can't help but laugh and simle at this movie the whole time. I first saw this movie when I was 10 years old. I love it just as much or maybe even a little more now. The show "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" is great! However, this movie is on a whole other level of greatness.

Emilymichelle9507 I believe ... Your supposed to see the rope thats y it's there

William-B 2012-04-02
This is still a fun movie. Pee Wee's just like the kid in all of us. In his world, you can meet a kind fugitive who dared to cut the "do not remove" tag from a mattress, a gang of bikers can be won over by doing a wacky dance to "Tequila," and a Hollywood producer can find your quest to retrieve your beloved bike a great story idea for a movie. I recommend this along with Ed Wood over some of Tim Burton's flashier gothic movies, although some of them are still very good too.

peewee is the most amazing actor of all time and DESERVES 1 million stars, the best the best the best

Critic4movies 2010-08-12
peeWee is the best movie! Highly reccomended!

a_new_hope 2010-06-08
I loved this movie as a kid - and I still remember the best parts, like the Tequila dance at the biker bar, them driving the car over the cliff, and especially (and my favorite) the part where he tries to prove he really is in Texas by shouting out the first part of the song 'Deep in the heart of Texas. A lot of funny, memorable moments in this movie. And, once again, it proves Tim Burton can do no wrong!

emilymichelle9501 2010-06-06
You can see the rope holding him when he jumps the water.

Very funny!

Bloody-Muffin 2009-08-19
Need I say more? This movie is HILARIOUS!!!!!

chrispinmilk 2009-07-09
This is one of the funniest films of all time. I don't care what you say about Pee Wee. This film is a classic and has a dozen quotable lines that I have remembered for 20 years. "I'm trying to talk on the phone!!!!" "I had a dream where this snake was wearing a vest..." "There's no basement in the Alamo." "It's like a big cable knit sweater that someone keeps knitting, and knitting..." And of course you can't leave out: "And when they pulled the body from the twisted wreck, it looked something like this...!!!" You will squirt milk from your nose on this one. RENT, BUY, Don't just sit there. This movie is what movies are all about, great entertainment. Thanks, Pee-Wee, wherever you are...

iRent 7.0 2009-06-01
I can sum up what my honest opinion is on this motion picture in only TWO WORDS: STUPID & WORTHLESS. PERIOD.

Maxie da taxi 2009-03-24
this definetly exceeds my interest due to the deligantly humorous moments i find that this wonderful action packed movie is on of the best i have every seen i reccomend this movie to anyone that wants a scare, and a laugh, and all of the above. 10 out 10 definetly !

Yo dude where is everyone 4 2009-02-20
Mark Holton such a great actor and person, he's in a league of their own just a funny guy and just really cool dude, he gives another top notch performance good job Mr. Holton

This is a true classic of Pee-Wee and Tim Burton got a complete showcase of what he's capable of for his first movie. Plus it's pretty hilarious (Pee-Wee talking to his breakfast in the first 7 mins is priceless). The only reason it gets 4 stars is because it's a little creepy how, unlike the show where everything is alive, he's kinda talking to himself for the first little while in his home. Besides that, it's one-in-a-million unique and legendary.

NOLAbaby 2009-01-24
this movie is a classic. nuf said, how else can you explain the magic of PeeWee. The show was even better. Dear itunes, please add the PeeWee's Playhouse seasons to your store. thanks for reading

full[moon]pills 2009-01-16
Burton usually does gothic related movies, & it still gave me that feeling when i watched the movie. Kinda like the Beetlejuice feeling. Haha i liked it. It was pretty awesome, even for a stupid character, the movie fit. It's worth renting.

Nate the Great 7 was almost right after all. Paul Reubens was accused of kiddie porn in 2001, but charges were later dropped, according to Wikipedia.

Riemo32 2009-01-10

Tim Burton's first movie sets the stage for the rest of his career. This movie is a classic, there are just so many memorable lines and scenes in this. I'm 20 now and I've been watching this movie since I was 3 or 4. This is a must have for your collection! Buy now!!!
