The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway: Film Review
Until Judd Apatow takes a shot at creating a cinematic universe as suited to Pee-Wee Herman's antics as Tim Burton's was in 1985, this filmed version of his Broadway show at least proves that the nearly 60 year-old Paul Reubens remains perfectly capable of embodying the eternal pre-teen who made him famous.
