Pee-wee's Big Holiday ★★

"You know I don't want to go anywhere or try anything new," explains the  hero of "Pee-wee's Big Holiday," which has just been made available on Netflix and in a small handful of theaters. The movie, written by Reubens and Paul Rust, dictates that Paul Reubens' iconic, charcoal-suited manchild will leave his small-town home behind, encountering a wide swath of all-American oddballs en route from idyllic, anachronistic Fairville to the equally mythic New York City. But while "Big Holiday" preaches the importance of getting outside of your comfort zone to "live a little," the movie itself never strays from the territory marked out by Reubens' previous big-screen outings. For a big adventure, it feels awfully small.
(Note: The one truly worthwhile scene starts at 59:30 and lasts approximately three minutes.)
