Lovable oddball Pee-Wee Herman runs a farm and becomes involved with a traveling circus in this cartoonish comedy. This lesser but still entertaining sequel to Pee-Wee's Big Adventure finds Pee-Wee spearheading a special tribute to agriculture to save the circus from bankruptcy.

Critic Reviews for Big Top Pee-Wee
A yeowling comedy. Look out for those sight gags.
It's too bad that Tim Burton went on to bigger and better things.
If there's a lower form of comedy than circus humor I've yet to encounter it.
What a waste.
Pee-wee's always funny, but Randal Kleiser doesn't know what to do with him.
Fun for children, embarrassing for adults, especially now knowing Pee-Wee's illegal indulgences.
Lacks the zeal and oddball energy of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, but fans (and kids) should find enough to enjoy.
Audience Reviews for Big Top Pee-Wee
Not my favorite Pee-Wee, that's for sure. Even though Valeria is a babe, watching Pee-Wee make out with her is creepy. I miss him being my a-sexual friend. The story is a good one, who doesn't want to join the circus?!More
This movie was a horrible follow up to the awesome original Pee-wee movie. If only they could have got Burton back to direct it... of course he was busy making other great movies like Beetlejuice. This one has a ridiculous story and doesn't feel in touch with what you've gotten to know of Pee-Wee's world. I hated it.More
