Let the haters hate, but...
16 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...i thought it was hilarious! Silly, stupid, outlandish, and unbelievable. Exactly what any and all of Pee-Wee's adventures should be. Sure it is no "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure", but that one has been done already. We don't need the same old, same old, that's what kills most sequels. That's what kills most everything that comes out of Hollywood. "Hangover 2" anybody? "Basic Instinct 2", can I get a witness?! Or, the worst of the worst, the remakes of incredible foreign films, just because most Americans hate to read. If you are looking for a cinematic experience then rent yourself a Peter Greenaway film, but if you are looking to loose yourself in a fantastic fantasy land full of funny then look no further than "Big Top Pee-Wee".
