Fast Times at Ridgemont High 1982

From Amazon: Before he became an overrated filmmaker, Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire) was a reporter for Rolling Stone who was so youthful looking that he could go undercover for a year at a California high school and write a book about it. He wrote the script for this film, based on that book, and it launched the careers of several young actors, including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, and, above all, Sean Penn. The story line is episodic, dealing with the lives of iconic teen types: one of the school's cool kids, a nerd, a teen queen, and, most enjoyably, the class stoner (Penn), who finds himself at odds with a strict...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High Movie Review by Movie Addict (8/16/2009)

What more could you want: Sean Penn (his second film), Anthony Edwards, Eric Stoltz, Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Nicolas Cage (in his first feature film) and Forrest Whitaker in the dawn of their acting lives? This alone makes the price of a ticket worthwhile.

Those of us that were to old for the...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High Movie Review by Melissa (11/18/2007)

Considering the fact this movie came out five years prior to my entrance into the world, I have to say when I did see this movie, it changed my life. I was so sick and tired of shopworn movies like Save the Last Dance and She's All That, when my father introduced Spicoli into my life, I knew nothing would be the same. Even...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/9/2007)

This movie proves why Cameron Crowe is the master of talk and characters to love.
Sean Penn walks, no stumbles, away with the movie as Jeff Spicoli. His stoner king has never been equaled, and he presented a hero for those huddled, high masses.
Jennifer Jason Leigh and Phoebe Cates are great as those girls we all wanted...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High Movie Review by Jacob (2/13/2007)

This truly is the American Pie of the eighties and one can't help but love every minute of it.
Fast Times takes the audience on a trip through the sex, drugs and rock and roll that are a part of a high school student's daily life. Along the way you meet a cast of colorful and hilarious characters including Judge Reinhold...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High Movie Review by Zara (1/24/2007)

Aloha, Mr Hand.

One of the best characters ever created for the silver screen is now one of the most despised actors in the view of the right wing nuts of this country. Sean Penn may be a lot of things, but a bad actor he never was. Don't let the stoner dude demeanor fool you. Spicoli is one of the most calculated moves...
