Pee Wees Big Adventure
Paul Reubens plays Pee Wee but what most people don't know is the man is a pretty damn good actor. Example: Blow. There have been rumors going on for years and years that he wants to bring back Pee Wee in a dark movie, and a kids movie. No other news has come from that though, guess we just have to sit and wait.
Interesting Pee Wees Big Adventure Tidbits:
We see Pee Wee in the tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur watching the sun come up. But what most people don't know is just a few feet from that dinosaur, stands the brontosaurus from, The Wizard. Where Jimmy goes to leave his lunchbox. And, that lunchbox is actually still inside of it, I know cause I have been there and seen it, and even taken a picture of it.
During the scene in the magic shop, a poster can be seen on the front of the counter for someone called "Alexander". The picture is quite clearly Jambi the Genie from "Pee-wee's Playhouse"
As Pee Wee walks into the magic shop at the beginning of the film, you can see a poster of "Elvira Mistress of the Dark". Elvira is the alter-ego of Cassandra Peterson, who plays the "Biker Momma" at the biker bar later on in the film.
And well since I can't find the clip anywhere, here is my favorite scene in the movie....
[Pee-Wee looks at Mickey's hand as he is wearing one handcuff]
Pee-wee: What did you do?
Mickey: Well, I lost my temper and I took a knife and I uh-. Do you know those "Do Not Remove Under the Penalty of Law" labels they put on mattresses?
Mickey: Well I CUT one of them off!
Mickey: Yeah, I have a real bad temper.
