A classic that I think rivals the like of Dazed and Confused. The many characters are great, and the actors all seem to vibe with each other. The soundtrack is also amazing and will have me watching just for it. It also has one of the most memorable and famous nude scenes of all time. The movie had me laughing throughout. This movie is epically awesome and should be seen by everybody.

A fun blend of comedy, coming-of-age realism, some young and talented actors, and a great soundtrack. This is 80's nostalgia at its finest and a fun romp from start to finish. The large cast of characters is balanced extremely well.

This was a great slacker comedy, possibly the best ever. The way Specoli acts through the movie is possibly the best part. I really thought that even though it was hilarious all the way through, it also had some drama mixed in, then again, what would high school be without drama. It really was a realistic movie as well as it was crazy. I would recomend this movie to people who like slacker comedies, and obiously high schoolers.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High review

A high-school film that revolves around an industrious Brad Hamilton (Judge Reinhold), stoner/surfer Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn), star football player Charles Jefferson (Forrest Whitaker), business-minded Mike Damone (Robert Romanus), Mike's shy gentlemanly friend Mark "Rat" Ratner (Brian Backer) together with friends Stacy Hamilton (Jennifer Jason Leigh) Linda (Phoebe Cates). Soundtrack was wonderful and one can see the future legends in Whitaker and Penn. If you are observant, you can also see a young Eric Stoltz and Nicolas Coppola (or who we can refer to now as Nicolas Cage). The nudity for its era was surprising, themes touched were sensitive and direction somewhat entertaining enough. Some of the acting and scenes felt amateurish nevertheless it provided the sufficient laughs. Scr...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High

We are all dorks in some way. I very much adored this movie because it really does stand out among what seems like an ocean of 80's teen flicks. Rarely do I get to watch a woman wanting sex more than the man, a teen druggie that I care about, and high school students just being high school students in a naturalized setting. This film has that organic feel to it so I can relate a lot easier here than the modern teen movies being released in theatres. Some stereotypes are blurred or destroyed. For instance, the popular guy that one expects to ruin everyone's lives turns out to be really kind-hearted. There's no bitchy cheerleader, no cat-fights; just an observation of high school students from fall to summer. I recommend this to everyone who loves movies from the 1980's... and the fans of "...
