In the sequel to "Pee Wee's Big Adventure", Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) is a simple farmer in a small town. But after a big storm blows their way, a circus ends up at Pee Wee's farm.
There are things to like about this film, like the talking pig and the screen debut of Benicio del Toro and Dustin Diamond (both in very small roles). You also have some bigger names in bigger roles, though why they signed on to this is something of a mystery.
Not that the film is terrible, but it really has no plot. We just have a circus, Pee-Wee as a womanizer, and some random silliness. No real story. And apparently no connection whatsoever to the first film, which seems completely bizarre. What happened to all those characters? Why does Pee-Wee suddenly live on a farm where he studies botany?
