When Spicoli and Jefferson's little brother are taking Jefferson's car for a drive, Spicoli weaves through traffic. it is clear that the "traffic" is moving extremely slowly to allow the stunt driver to manoeuvre the car cleanly through the nighttime traffic. See more »
Almost 22 years after it's release this movie still remains to be
great. Amy Heckerling gave us another hit in the 90's Clueless so
it's no doubt that this too has become a cult classic.
This movie being a high school movie evolving around teenagers, though
made in the 80's, contained all the elements that a horny teenage movie
would have topless women, pot smoking, masturbation, cheating on
tests, virginity losing and all that sex talk and quite obviously teen
pregnancy!!! However they were not extensively used unnecessarily with
the intention to make people laugh they were used at the right time
and were very funny.
Sean Penn was excellent that was quite the performance as Jeff
Spicoli especially now considering he is an Oscar winner that's
quite the long road he has traveled.
This was a great teenager movie and for people who just love high
school movies this movie should next on their lit.
