A man listens in to a couple talking, the few phrases he catches imply they're doing more than just talking.

People are seen in swimsuits.

Pee-Wee looks at a good looking young woman with X-Ray glasses (we don't actually see what Pee-Wee sees, though his reaction implies it is pretty exciting).


A few light fights and bike/foot chases. The violent act in the climatic chase is when Pee Wee pulls a realistic facade backdrop painting of an alley way in front of a wall to trick his pursuers into running into it.

At the end, Pee Wee gets his revenge against the villain who had his bike stolen in the first place by allowing him to get on it, and then activating the ejection seat to send him flying to a presumably hard landing.

Pee-Wee uses the word "crappy" at one point.

A band is performing a song that contains the lyric "Burn in Hell."

Pee-Wee enters a truckstop bar at one point with several customers smoking and drinking. However Pee-Wee himself never participates in this behavior, and it is certainly not glorified. No one is shown drunk or high.


1:07:00 Scary clowns and devils.

A woman's face morphs into a creature for a brief moment with her eyes popping out, her teeth separated, her tongue flaps around her mouth, and her hair flies everywhere. This may be frightening to some.

Danny Elfman's odd-sounding score may be disturbing to some at times.
