The film's inventiveness is on display from the get-go.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Chiefly successful because of its commitment to an artistic ideal: make something that looks, talks, feels, and moves like a cartoon.

A purely creative movie that one must admit has no equal in cinema history (for better or worse). [Blu-ray]

It's surreal, funny, clever and disarming in equal measures.

Empire Magazine

Burton's first feature revels in the weird, the unpredictable, the infantile and the absurd. A dazzling debut.

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.

The filmmakers create a zany and surreal world for Pee-wee yet it all seems perfectly natural and credible. Plus, it's all infused with a subdued yet rampant silliness that's enchanting.

Tim Burton's visual imagination proves a perfect match for Pee-wee's fanciful exploits.

Fed by comic tributaries perhaps, but Pee-Wee Herman comes over as a delightful original.

Cinema em Cena

Já exibindo seu senso de humor bizarro, Burton impressiona em sua estréia como diretor, criando uma aventura ingênua, mas inventiva (e Reubens é um comediante de mão cheia).
