You love this news so much, why don't you just marry it?

Well apparently Netflix loves Pee-Wee Herman so much they are marrying him. It's been known for a while that Netfix, which is on a hot streak, is producing the new Pee-Wee Herman film.

The name of the movie and more details, which we've all been waiting for, were finally announced today by Netflix. The Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee Herman)/Judd Apatow collaboration will be called Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. It's the highly anticpated, loooong-awaited sequel to Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and Big Top Pee-Wee.

Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, according to Netflix, is about “a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.”

Reubens wrote the screenplay with Arrested Development and Comedy Bang! Bang! scribe Paul Rust, and John Lee (Inside Amy Schumer, Broad City) will direct. It's film idea has been in the works for four years.

From Pee-Wee's lipsticked lips: "Judd and I dreamt up this movie four years ago. The world was much different back then— Netflix was waiting by the mailbox for red envelopes to arrive. I’ve changed all that. The future is here. Get used to it. Bowtie is the new black.”

While it was announced filming would start in three weeks, no release date has been mentioned. So for now, we'll just have to be satisfied waiting for Paul Ruebens to show up on favorite shows like The Blacklist, where he and his wig just kill as Mr. Vargas.

While we greatly appreciate this fantastic update about Pee-Wee, now where's Mike Myers' news about the next Austin Powers?!

'Jersey Shore' Blah Blah 'Shark Attack' Vinny Blah *NSync Blah Blah Huh?

 

REVIEWING THE NEWS BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS: Syfy is airing an original movie next summer called Jersey Shore Shark Attack. Which could also just be wishful thinking. It's about the blah blah that happens to the blah blah and stars dudes and Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagino and Joey Fatone and Paulie Walnuts. Blahhhhhhh.

A few things about the above production image from SyFy's upcoming original movie, Jersey Shore Shark Attack: That guy on the bottom right looks like E from Entourage (aka Kevin Connolly), and it's weirding me out man! Also, the premise of Shark Attack loses some bite when its characters appear in no way exaggerated from the real thing. Lastly, that title seems like it's missing a colon, which is something the flick might actually have in common with JWOWW and Snooki. 

Rimshot.

That's what she said.

What's Jersey Shore Shark Attack about you ask? Really? You do? OK, well, breed Piranha 3D with reality stars, Joey Fatone, a few guys from The Sopranos and Goodfellas, low enough filming costs to afford the aforementioned ringers and cast out blunt stereotypes as bait for profit, headlines and, oh yeah, sharks.

Blah.

 

IN OTHER WORDS: This is the one instance in which it's not passe to suggest that a franchise has jumped the shark.

JERSERY SHORE SHARK ATTACK RATING: Oy/10

IS THERE NO SANCTITY AMONG SOPRANOS RATING? It's a Living/10

REMEMBER THE SITCOM IT'S A LIVING? LOVED THAT ONE RATING: 10/10

BLAH RATING: Blahhhhhhhhhhh/10
