“Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” (Warner Bros., 1985). Pee-wee Herman (played by Paul Reubens) travels the country trying to find his treasured stolen bicycle. Along the way, he meets ex-con Mickey Morrelli, truck driver Large Marge, waitress Simone, and a bunch of bikers. We also learn about the architecture of the Alamo. Surreal silliness which I totally love. Written by Phil Hartman, Paul Reubens and Michael Varhol. Directed by Tim Burton (his first feature-length film). “I know you are, but what am I?”
