Welcome back, Pee Wee Herman
23 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Man-child has not aged a bit.

Pee Wee goes Big for the third time. In the Big Holiday, Pee Wee has a brief but memorable encounter with a fictional Joe Manganiello (played by the real Joe Manganiello) and as, such is invited to his birthday bash in New York, so for the first time, ever he leaves the town of fiarville to journey to New York, and what a journey.

Similar to his first movie, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Pee Wee travels across America to get to New York, along the way meeting some strange an usual characters, like a group of female bank robbers on the run and an old Framer with too many daughters that see Pee Wee as a catch, all in the name of Friendship. Who wouldn't want to be friends with Pee Wee Herman? Who wouldn't want to be friends with Joe Manganiello?

Time has agreed with Pee Wee. He's as ageless as a cartoon character. It successfully brought me back to my child hood. I still want to live in Pee Wee's house.

Pee Wee's Big Holiday was funny in it's purest form as Herman yelled out jokes for everyone.

Very nice, Way to go Netflix.
