Remember when Tim Burton made good movies? Okay, that's probably a little un-generous, so lets try this instead: Remember when Tim Burton made fun movies? And fun as in "Oh, that's so childlike and delightful," and not fun as in "Hey, Batman just shoved six sticks of dynamite into a clown's nutsack." 1987's Pee-wee's Big Adventure was Burton's feature debut, and partnered with Paul Reubens at his best, an exquisite red bike, and an expert deployment of "Tequila," it was a big, deserved win. In the 30-plus years since both men have traveled a very potholed road but this look in the rearview at their sunshiny success is still pure smile fuel. by Bobby Roberts
