Jeff Spicoli, surfer dude: From this unforgettable character in Amy Heckerling's beloved high school comedy, it would be hard to imagine the places Penn has gone as an actor. Although from the start, his dedication was evident. It was reported that on set he only answered to Spicoli and changed his dressing room door from "Sean Penn" to "Spicoli." The result is one of comedy's most loveable losers. In her New York Times review, Janet Maslin noted "the movie's real scene stealer is Sean Penn, as a pink-eyed surfer named Jeff Spicoli who wouldn't dream of holding down a job. Spicoli's dream is to describe surfing to a television interviewer as ''a way of looking at that wave and saying "Hey, Bud, let's party.""
