Sean Penn Finally Decides To Lighten Up


Though many younger movie patrons may not remember, there was a time when Sean Penn used to have fun in his movies before becoming the oh so serious thespian most know him as today. Happy days are here again for the Oscar winning actor who has recently stated in a press conference that he intends to lighten up. That's great news for fans who scantly remember his comedic turn as stoner-surfer dude Jeff Spicoli in 1982's "Fast Times At Ridgemont High." But that was almost thirty years ago. Most film-goers these days were pretty sure that they'd never see a lighthearted return to form after an extreme liberal pole became firmly lodged in his ass at some point during his career and turned him into angry Sean.

So why the change of heart? "I figure it like this," Penn said at the conference. "The philosophy of going to a Sean Penn film should be 'we're here to have a good time.' Now if you're here and I'm here on the screen.....doesn't that make it our time? Isn't it OK to lighten up a bit during our time?" Sean insists that most of his anger simply came out of having nothing to do between shooting films. "The truth is millionaire actors get bored and usually resort to either politics or scientology to fill the time. I chose liberal politics because there's so much drama there to help keep an actor's mind engaged."

But what can fans expect from a new and improved Sean? "I've got some ideas kicking around which may or may not involve revisiting a cannabis loving surfer," the thespian said in a playful tone. "Life is too short to be an over serious douche, and I've got some not so serious ground to make up!" 

A newer happier Sean may revisit.....

....a cannabis loving surfer. AWESOME, TOTALLY AWESOME

    I would lose my shit and turn my blog into a running river of rage.

    2. And then I would ensure my raging river of resentment washed over you, this blog... everyone associated with that blasphemous abomination.

      SOME THINGS SHOULD BE HELD SACRED.

    3. actually, in a nice twist, Spicoli could be a teacher like Mr. Hand now and have to deal with the new stoner crowd! How about that?

    6. That exchange was hilarious.

      Why don't we just kill two birds with one stone and have Spicoli team up with Ferris Bueller for a Combo Sequel of Death?

    1. Oh I like him too. Especially in Carlito's Way and At Close Range. He just seems so damn tightly wound all the time.

  5. I would totally go see a film with old Spicoli, living in a 68 VW bus, and spending all day surfing at San Onofre, and all night banging Orange County filthy rich Milf.

    1. Mel is almost too easy a target to pick on, but we've been considering it.

  7. Wasn't Penn attached to the Three Stooges movie at one point? Or considering it at least? How weird would that have been?

    There was also the time when he randomly appeared on Viva La Bam...

    1. yeah I was rooting for that Stooges pic instead of the one we got. I think it was originally going to be a biopic which I think would have been much more interesting.
