One of the first movies I ever saw in the theater was when my dad took me to see Big Top Pee-Wee. I'm sure he had a horrible time, but he's a trooper! Later on, when I was about 7 or so, I finally saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, easily the best thing involving the character and one of Tim Burton's most enjoyable features. I still cite it in everyday life.
Now, thanks to Netflix, Paul Reubens returns as his iconic character in a new film entitled Pee-Wee's Big Holiday, directed by John Lee, creator of Wonder Showzen.
This may just recapture the wild road-trip magic of the Big Adventure. I sure hope so!
