Sean Penn is one of those actors whose individual performances I may like and admire, but who I never really warmed up to. And yeah, his public persona seems to be overly serious, self-important and humourless and I find it vaguely irritating.

The actor, and the activist.

I would probably like Sean Penn less if I really paid attention to his public persona. I've enjoyed some of his movies, especially U-Turn a few months ago. I don't rush out to see his new movies, but there are plenty of actors who annoy me more.

Sean Penn is an amazing and talented actor. I couldn't care less about his personal life. Although, I do think his activism is nice.

My favorite movie Penn starred in was "Bad Boys" ... he played a school kid who was arrested and sent to a correctional facility to serve time for his criminal behavior. This was the BEST movie he ever did ... as his character learned from his mistakes and became a better person in the end.

The worst movie was definitely "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" ... as Penn played a student who did nothing but constantly get stoned with other friends. The dumbest role ever.

His most realistic performance to date.

I haven't seen enough of his films to make a firm judgment on him, but Spicoli is Spicoli.

^ Actually, it's not the kind of movie to use as a 'role model' for our own young children to grow up attempting to succeed in doing. The fact that they were only 'starting-out' in their Freshman year is rather pathetic.

That movie was about 2 things ... 'who could have a good time with whom' ... or 'who could use drugs and stay wasted'... that was the whole theme/plot (nothing else) That ridiculous and meaningless plot was not exactly the BEST way to teach our children about 'right and wrong'.

I don't think anyone anywhere is pointing to Fast Times at Ridgemont High as a great movie to use as a role model.

You could say "it's a terrible movie to show our children about right and wrong" about loads of movies.

If you're letting a younger child watch this in the first place, you're doing something wrong.

I'm totally going to use Boogie Nights to teach my children all the moral values they'll need to know.

It'll be the Sunday morning movie.
