There are a few scenes that are over-the-top and dramatic for the sake of being dramatic, but ultimately, the film delivers with its message that labels are only as important as we want them to be.

One good thing about Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice? I’m pretty sure a hell of a drinking game can be made around it. Every time Batman crashes into something: take a drink. Every time Lex Luthor monologues about God: take a drink. Every time Lois Lane gets trapped or captured: take a drink.
What’s interesting about Pee-wee’s Big Holiday is that it must do the impossible: Measure up as a sequel to a true original.
