From start to finish, "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" is one of the most ridiculously enjoyable road trip movies I've ever seen. I first experienced it as a child and sure, I didn't get most of the comedy, but here's what I do know: the stars at night are big and bright (then you clap) deep in the heart of Texas, never accept rides from female truckers and, of course, there is no basement in The Alamo.
Now Paul Reubens is teaming with writer/director Judd Apatow to bring us a whole new rash of life lessons and a third big screen adventure. “Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman," Judd told Variety. "I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens — who is an extraordinary and ground-breaking actor and writer. It’s so great to watch him return with such relevance.”
