Sean Penn Briefly Recalls Spicoli from FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH

     June 9, 2011


At Spike TV’s “Guys Choice Awards” (because guys so rarely get to decide just about everything) the male cast of Fast Times at Ridgemont High and director Amy Heckerling reunited on stage and Sean Penn brought back his breakthrough role as Jeff Spicoli for about two seconds by saying “Aloha, Mr. Hand” as only Spicoli could say it.  Spicoli is a funny role these days because it’s such a light role and Penn has devoted himself to serious movies and serious issues for the majority of his career.  The last time he did an (intentional) comedy was 1999’s Sweet and Lowdown (2001’s I Am Sam is pretty hilarious).  I can’t help but wonder if audiences could even accept Penn in a comic role today.
