Synopsis:
Fast Times at Ridgemont High, directed by Amy Heckering, is simply a modern cult classic. First-time screenwriter Cameron Crowe, went undercover as a high school student and came back with the straight dope on sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, while capturing some of the most memorable screen characters ever. They're all here, from Stacy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Linda's (Pheobe Cates) sexual misadventures to go-getter Brad's (Judge Reinhold) quick career in the world of fast food to the unforgettable Spicoli (Sean Penn) as the ultimate surfer dude. Add appearances by Nicolas Cage. Anthony Edwards, Forest Whitaker and Ray Walston and you have an unbeatable cast.
With all this talent behind it, no wonder Fast Times at Ridgemont High is as honest, fresh and funny as it was a generation ago.

Predictable and cheesy - Fast Times at Ridgemont High review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
24/05/2010

If you are after a predictable and cheesy American High School film, this is for you. It lacks any substance and the poor acting is at times cringeworthy- very 80's. I think there are much better and funnier films out there.

Good old 80s High School Movie - Fast Times at Ridgemont High review by EP

Spoiler Alert
13/09/2019

I grew up in the 80s watching films like this...and loved them! I was too young to watch this one at the time.

This is all good, cast has lots of familiar faces Sean Penn, Eric Stoltz the lovely Phoebe Cates (worth watching for her alone).

Sean Penn's character is a bit overacted and Judge Reinhold's is just a bit slow and odd, all works though in this old 80s film.

I never knew the music video Stacey's Mom was based on a scene from this film!

There's not huge story line, mostly about some characters from a school, relationships, weekend jobs etc. It's all quite light watching and overall a great slightly daft, slightly raunchy over the top American High School comedy flick, sit back with a cold beer and enjoy!
