Hey, there's no birthday party in here for me!, 30 December 2005
8/10

Sean Penn creates an icon in only his 2nd major role. While he's not necessarily the axis of the movie, what you take away from it you will owe mostly to him. He's the Big Lebowski in a really fun movie about high school that deserves it's status. Every word that comes out of his mouth is so funny and quotable. Spicoli is truly one of the greatest characters to come out of the 80's. He's not the only actor of note here. Jennifer Jason Leigh has her breakthrough role as every geek's dream-girl showing a naiveté and innocence that are so hard to resist. Cameron Crowe captures the time and place for that era and makes you wish you could have been there.
