Bob Balaban's dark comic horror about a young boy suspecting his suburban parents to be cannibals
Before Paul Reubens was pilloried in the press for the relatively minor infraction of jerking off during a porno movie, he was one of the most popular and subversive forces in children's TV thanks to his ground-breaking series Pee-Wee's Playhouse. This delightfully inane big-screen spin-off marked the feature debut of cult film-maker Burton and was the perfect vehicle for his bizarre, scattershot mentality. What little plot there is revolves around Pee-Wee's countrywide search for his missing red bicycle, but it's really just an excuse for some truly off-the-wall humour.
It's surreal, funny, clever and disarming in equal measures.
