PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE!! Our first NBMDI vote for the FAMILY night feature is the quirky and hilarious 80's movie that follows a boy as he sets out on the adventure of a lifetime to find his beloved bike. Pack up the entire family for this cute and clever movie that's fun for both kids and grown folk.
As usual we will have our concessions stand with treats to enhance your viewing pleasure...this week with special Pee-Wee cupcakes!!
"I know you are but what am I?" was aflurry amidst the playground full of six and seven year olds at my school in the mid 1980s. The 1980s was known for a lot of things, but one that isn't brought up as much as the Star Wars films or Ninja Turtles is Pee-Wee Herman: the ingenious creation of comedian Paul Reubens.
Pee-Wee wasn't just child-like, giving people all ages a broad affection for him with kids finding his simple humor funny and adults realizing he's a little more complex a character than just that (and more adult humor than he lets on). Pee-Wee literally was a kid in an adult's body. He's innocent, incredibly gullible, finds the simplest things amusing and, with perfect comedic timing from Reubens, throws countless sight-gags, one-liners and memorable situations our way.
Upon its release, Reubens and the film's comedic style itself, was quickly compared to the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and certainly the Marx Brothers- Pee-Wee a damn-near reincarnation of Groucho combined with a bit of Harpo for good measure. You can throw in other great comedic legends, such as Jacques Tati and even Don Knotts in many respects. Truth be told, Reuben's iconic creation is just as endearing as any of them. With two features, a successful television show and an even more successful stage show, Pee-Wee certainly had the popularity and success even if it was short-lived during the decade.
