Movie Preview: “Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday”

He’s still got the suit, the white bucks, the bow tie.

But it’s easy to see why this was a deemed Netflix picture. There are some laughs. Joe Manangiello delivers.

But Pee-Wee Herman’s lost his mania, his fastball. His laugh. That voice is showing a lot of mileage.

Not exactly “timeless.” Needed a daft and deft directorial touch to amp up the energy, or help Reubens fake it.
