Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016)

Director: John Lee

Stars: Paul Reubens, Jordan Black, Doug Cox, Joe Manganiello, Lynne Marie Stewart, David Arquette

A fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.

This movie had the same feeling in the beginning as the first Pee Wee movie. You still feel like you are entering into a grown up child's dream world where everything is better in the end. It is more fun. After all of these years, Paul Reubens still has it. He can still put on this character and make you believe in him. It is magic.

The story was simple and basic. Pee Wee goes on a holiday for the first time, but didn't he go cross country to find his bike? I thought so. They just need a story, so it work for the first movie. They were hoping another cross country trip would work for another movie. It did. It just need something more. You still get to meet a few of the old characters and several new one to add to the mix of colors and personalities. The odd part was Joe Manganiello playing himself and wanting nothing but to play with Pee Wee at his own birthday party in California. It was an odd part of the story.

If you are a fan of Pee Wee, then you have to see this movie. You will love it. It is almost like watching it all for the first time again. Enjoy.
