Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985)

I have to admit I was a bit worried about watching this movie. I loved Pee-Wee Herman as a kid and I wasn't sure how well it would hold up now that I'm not, you know, six. I didn't want to ruin those nostalgic memories. But, with Pee-Wee making a comeback and turning into the hottest shit on the streets right now (OK, on the blogosphere) I thought I'd give it a shot and guess what?

It's still friggin awesome! The Big Adventure starts off with Pee-Wee getting his sweet ass beach cruiser stolen and the rest of the movie is spent getting it back. It's a great ride for people of all ages. People have always said that Pee-Wee was great because kids and adults alike could both enjoy it. I never really cared because I was a kid but now that I'm an adult I'd have to agree with them. It's one of those classic movies that was funny when I was 9, is funny now that I'm 29 and will be funny when I'm 99. If you're feeling nostalgic turn this movie on and show your kids why Pee-Wee Herman was so much fun.

The Standard 5:

Why is it in your queue? Because it's Pee-Wee Herman, how could it not be?

Is it artsy? Nope, just good family fun.

Best thing about the movie? Pee-Wee still has the coolest beach cruiser I've ever seen in my life and the bicycle chase at the end was by far the best bicycle chase in the history of cinema. I'm not just saying that because I can't think of any other bicycle chase scenes either.

What mood should I be in to watch this movie? Nostalgic and with your kids if you have them.

What rating did you give it on Netflix? 4 Stars.

    When I was a kid, my sisters and I used to watch Pee Wee's Big Adventure about once a week. We could literally recite the entire movie, word for word, and did so often.
