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).
| Original Score: 4/5

Mostly the film is filled with bizarre jokes that only grow funnier as the film's cult appeal increases; it wears its 20 years well.

...the movie retains its innocence without being bland, which is a tough balance to pull off.

This is the movie that, rightfully, catapulted both Tim Burton and Paul Reubens (aka Pee-wee Herman) into the superstar arena.

A little gem, odd, quirky and completely different; James Brolin as Pee Wee Herman is a blast.
| Original Score: 3/5

Delirious, cartoonish, wildly inventive.

Herman is trying to turn attitudinizing into comic performance art. But in this case he hasn't developed his stand-up posture into a fleshed-out character.
