‘I Am’ sends message to students

Shadyac talks of pic, career

S tudents from El Toro High weren’t able to get into the L.A. preem of Tom Shadyac’s doc “I Am,” so the helmer-prof hopped the barrier to spend time with them Mar. 8 at the Arclight.

“I’ve done seven or eight movies — comedies…but ‘Ace Ventura’ seems to be the one that everybody talks about,” Shadyac said. His fave line from that pic? Not “Alrighty then” but “Yummy.”

“If that ever comes up in a game show, you’ll win,” he said.

Guest Daryl Hannah seemed to be especially touched by the Paladin pic, which details Shadyac’s quest for enlightenment after a serious cycling accident. “We should all go back and watch this film about every two weeks to remind us that we’re all interconnected,” Hannah told a friend.
