“I pity da fool who don’t eat my breakfast cereal!”
What is arguably one of the funniest movies of the 1980’s, Paul Reubens creates the mythical character of Pee-wee Herman. Pee Wee, who is apparently perpetually 10 years old and extremely unemployed, spends most of his time rigging contraptions to make his breakfast and finding time to creepily obsess over his gangster style bling-bling bike.
On a routine visit to the local magic shop to “stock up supplies” his bike is stolen through 9 layers of locked chains sending Pee-wee into a super-sized nervous breakdown. Pee wee assumes it’s his arch nemesis Francis another unemployed man-child played convincingly played by Mark Holton. Pee-wee attacks Francis in his over-sized bathtub pool ala mobster style interrogation but gets no result so instead he seeks the cosmic wisdom of giant facial moled astrologist. She tells him his bike is in the basement of the Alamo, So Pee-wee sets off on his big adventure across the country to find his beloved leg-powered machine. He encounters a wide variety of weird characters from a ghost truck driver , a waitress with a manly sounding French accent, a motorcycle gang, a escaped convict, and other assortment of people you’d run into at a late night Denny’s. Eventually ending up in the capitol of weirdos, Hollywood California where he leads a chase across the backlots of Warner Brothers. Will Pee-wee get his bike back? Will his girlfriend Dot get to finally go on an actual date with him? Will we ever find out when the 100 uses for corn are?
A hilarious movie for the whole family and a generational film everyone should see. Also be sure track down his old tv show “Pee Wee’s Playhouse.” for even more laughs.
