Watched this for the first time and finished it moments ago. Tim Burton certainly makes interesting films.
Pee-wee is an interesting character. Just when you think the film might get really awkward, or Pee-wee might be in big trouble, it finds a way in a funny way.
It is definitely funny, and there's no real cringe, despite Pee-wee Herman being an odd character.
I'm glad I watched it.
