Awesome / Pee-wee's Big Adventure

Go To

  • In another word: BREAKFAST.
  • In one word: TEQUILA!
    • In fourteen words: Biker bar. Pee-wee Herman. Giant platform shoes. "Tequila" by The Champs. That dance.
      • In the process, winning their hearts when they were seriously considering destroying him, before.
  • Pee-wee managing to not only survive accidently ending up in a rodeo but breaking the bull-riding record!
    • Then the bull chases Andy off into the sunset!
    • Then Simone finally dumps Andy and finds true love with a nice, handsome, young Frenchman at the end.
  • Pee-wee finally steals his Cool Bike back and kicks off a huge chase scene across various soundstages and movie sets all over the Warner Bros. Studios.

  • After he escapes the Warner Bros. Studios, he happens on a pet store that has caught fire and saves every single animal trapped inside. Even the snakes.
  • The police and the studio, rather than hauling Pee-wee off to prison decide to make a cool spy flick based off of his adventure, instead (probably due to Pee-wee explaining his situation and saving the critters in the pet shop).
  • Pee-wee launching Francis into deep space with the ejection seat of his Cool Bike.
  • "Come on, Dottie, let's go. "Let's go? Don't you want to see the rest of the movie?" "I don't have to see the movie, Dottie. I lived it."
  • Meta: would you believe that the director of this movie also directed movies like Sweeney Todd and Batman (1989), and they were all successes? That’s range right there.

How well does it match the trope?
