In Pee-wee Herman's big-screen debut, Paul Reubens' signature character travels across the country looking for his lost bicycle. Yes, the premise is ridiculous, but you don't watch Pee-wee for mental stimulation. You watch him to laugh. From the insults traded between the famous man-child and his like-minded nemesis, Francis Buxton, to his run-in with a ghostly truck driver, "Big Adventure" is funny, so long as you can tell your brain to take a hike while watching the film.
