Erin and Paul review two classic movies about missing bikes and their owners' desperate efforts to retrieve them. First: THE BICYCLE THIEF, Vittorio de Sica's 1948 Italian neorealist classic about a poverty-stricken Roman man who must either find his stolen bicycle or lose the job that his family's livelihood depends on; then, PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE, Tim Burton's eccentric 1985 debut feature starring Paul Reubens as a childlike man who travels across America in hopes of retrieving his prize possession: a shiny red bicycle. The back rooms of a church, or the basement of the Alamo: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on R.I.P.D. and THE ACT OF KILLING.
