In the sequel to "Pee Wee's Big Adventure", Pee-Wee Herman has had enough with the fame and constant media attention he received after the events of the first movie, so he's now a simple farmer living quietly in a small town. But after a big storm blows their way, a circus ends up at Pee Wee's farm. So he lets the circus stay at his farm for a while. The circus decides to put on a show with one lovable star, Pee-Wee! Also, a love triangle develops between Pee-Wee, his nice fiancée Winnie, who's the local schoolteacher, and mysterious loner Gina, the circus' attractive trapeze artist. The outcome of this subplot is somewhat unexpected.Written by

The Only Movie I Ever Saw to Make Me Cackle All The Way Through...
Don't believe the low average rating below, Big Top Pee Wee is the only movie I have ever seen that made me cackle throughout it's 90 minute run time. Paul Reubens portrays the childlike Pee Wee with such wondrous physical gift, that if it weren't for the infamous movie theater event that ruined his career, he would be compared to the likes of Chaplin, Keaton, and the Marx Brothers. The story line also runs smoothly, providing bubbling amounts of sheer joy for the audience members to soak in. See this movie immediately and enjoy it as thoroughly as I did. Pee Wee won't leave you without tears of laughter streaming from your face, you can count on it.
