Pee-wee's Big Adventure
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 1.0 4.0

Personally, I think Pee-wee Herman is creepy, but for some reason, when I was little, I used to watch this movie. Pee-wee is a very immature adult. His house is filled with all kinds of toys. Pee-wee's most beloved possession is his red bicycle. He loves his bike more than anything and anyone. One day when he goes toy shopping, he notices that his red bicycle is missing. Pee-wee blames it on his enemy Francis Buxton. Francis claims he didn't take it. A fortune teller told him that his bicycle is in the basement of the Alamo, which is in San Antonio, Texas. Pee-wee travels around trying to find his prize possession. He meets many people with his quirky ways. Will he find his bike? If you'd like to know then you have to watch this movie. I wouldn't recommend watching this just because I am annoyed by Pee-wee Herman.
