Children should love the film and adults will be dismayed by the light brushstrokes with which Paul Reubens (one of three credited screenwriters, but star-billed under his stage name, Pee-wee Herman) suggests touches of Buster Keaton and Eddie Cantor.

Variety Staff, Variety, 2010-02-09

 

Fed by comic tributaries perhaps, but Pee-Wee Herman comes over as a delightful original.

Review, Time Out, 2006-02-09

 

Reubens always lets us feel superior to his creation, and when his character slips, as it does more than once in this first feature outing, his own condescension shows through.

Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, 2010-02-09

 

Fair warning: this movie could induce terminal boredom in adults and rot the minds of the young.

Review, TIME Magazine, 2010-02-09

 

You have been warned.
