"On this very night, ten years ago, along this very stretch of road in a dense fog just like this. I saw the worst accident I ever seen. There was this sound, like a garbage truck dropped off the Empire State Building... And when they pulled the driver's body from the twisted, burning wreck. It looked like this... " - Large Marge, Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985)

Warner Brothers, Rated PG, 90 minutes.

Synopsis: Pee-wee embarks on a nation wide journey to retrieve his stolen bike.

Fact: This is director, Tim Burton, and composer, Danny Elfman's first film.

Trivia: When Large Marge tells her story she never blinks.

Movie Mistake: The orange juice in the dinosaur jug changes back and forth from empty to full.

My Take: I never forgot this movie. I was 15 and I actually screamed like a little girl when Large Marge's face freaks out. It's a very funny movie that'll have you screaming "Good morning Mr. Breakfast!"
