About the Movie
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").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Children should love the film and adults will be dismayed by the light brushstrokes with which Paul Reubens (one of three credited screenwriters, but star-billed under his stage name, Pee-wee Herman) suggests touches of Buster Keaton and Eddie Cantor.
Fresh: It's surreal, funny, clever and disarming in equal measures.
Fresh: Burton's first feature revels in the weird, the unpredictable, the infantile and the absurd. A dazzling debut.
Fresh: Fed by comic tributaries perhaps, but Pee-Wee Herman comes over as a delightful original.
One of the best movies ever
