You remember high school? Really remember? If you think you do, watch this film: it'll all really come racing back. After changing the world with the generation-defining Slacker, director Richard Linklater turned his free-range vérité sensibility on the 1970s. As before, his all-seeing camera meanders across a landscape studded with goofy pop culture references and poignant glimpses of human nature. Only this time around, he's spreading a thick layer of nostalgia over the lens (and across the soundtrack). It's as if Fast Times at Ridgemont High was directed by Jean-Luc Godard. The story deals with a group of friends on the last day of high school, 1976. Good-natured football star Randall "Pink" Floyd navigates effortlessly between the warring worlds of jocks, stoners, wannabes, and rockers with girlfriend and new-freshman buddy in tow. Surprisingly, it's not a coming-of-age movie, but a film that dares ask the eternal, overwhelming, adolescent question, "What happens next?" It's a little too honest to be a light comedy (representative quote: "If I ever say these were the best years of my life, remind me to kill myself."). But it's also way too much fun (remember souped-up Corvettes and bicentennial madness?) to be just another existential-essay-on-celluloid. --Grant Balfour --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

First off, I love this movie. The first time I saw it was shortly after it was released on video, in 1993/1994. Since then I've seen it more times than I can count on my fingers and toes. I can practically recite every line.
However, a note to those of you who are reading this because you've seen the movie and want to know more about the DVD itself:
I was disappointed with the Flashback Edition. There are no commentary tracks and the extras, while funny, aren't too exciting and seem to be there for the purpose of having SOMETHING new for a second edition that they can make more money off the movie and pacify those who complained that the previous version had no special features at all.
The only extra segment that I enjoyed was the montage of 9 deleted scenes, some of which explain inconsistencies in the movie. For example, how did O'Bannion and others know that Mitch would be pitching a baseball game? Now I know. Having missed those scenes all these years I don't feel like I needed them. What I really wanted was some insight from Linklater. I watched it with the subtitles on (are those considered a "special feature" if they're embedded in the movie itself?) and that really did add to my enjoyment of the actual movie. Like I said, I can recite a lot of the lines. Now I can recite more and the ones that I'd misheard have been corrected.
If you already own the previous edition, save your money on the new one or buy another DVD.
Because I'm rating the overall DVD and not just the movie, it lost one star. The movie itself is a 5-star.

I've always loved this film and i have great memories attached to it from my youth.If your a fan of this movie get the Criterion edition.The picture and sound are top notch.Very obvious on a high end audio/video system.I urge people to do a comparison of Criterion and the flashback edition.Check out the scene at the liquor store when Mitch is standing outside,the Criterion edition is flawless,the other versions of the film have a real glitch here.I loved the packaging,the book and all the great extras including a reunion of the cast,with great insights on the film-yeah the scene where they are driving at the end to get the concert tickets, that was real dope they were smoking,you'll learn this and more with this gem.Totally worth every penny!!

Finally, a DAZED AND CONFUSED special edition. This is one of the best comedies ever made. Some people find it boring and plotless, but they're just unable to appreciate the honesty that comes along with the movie. Whenever I watch this movie, I watch the whole thing, no scene selections. There is just something about this movie that makes you feel comfortable. It is probably the familiarity that accompanies each of the characters that reminds you of people that you know. There is also something about the feeling of following the characters from the end of their last day of school into the party and concluding on the next morning. There is a feeling about joining the party that makes this movie watchable at most any time. You can feel like you are in the movie, and there is something about it that just wants to make you have fun or go hang out with your friends. People who haven't seen this movie will also be surprised to see the a lot of the cast, which includes many now-famous actors. This cast includes Jason London, Ben Affleck, Rory Cochrane, Mila Jovovich, Matthew McConaughey, and, well there is too many, but believe me, if you remember high school, or you like comedies and you haven't already, you have to check this movie out, and watch the whole thing. It is also good to watch it with a friend so you have someone to talk to about it. An unforgettable set of characters, some good jokes, an unforgettable party, and finally, some special features to go along with the movie. I was one of those people who was told about the movie from a cousin and I picked up the DVD (old one with no special features) and it became one of my favorites. The thing that surprised me was that nobody really knew about it, except for some older people, because the movie was like AMERICAN PIE when it came out.Read more ›

I saw this movie and was certainly surprised at how different from its peers it is. "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" is deep, and certainly funny, but it lacks that underlying tone of what will happen to the kids once they get out of school. "American Pie" is hilarious, but it's too bogged down by clichés. "Dazed and Confused", however, finds the perfect middle ground. Set in Austin, Texas, on the last day of school in 1976, the film follows a rouges gallery of colorful (if not fun-loving) teenagers who plan to spend the afternoon and night having as much fun as possible, and that's an understatement. The story itself is very simple, yet captivating and intriguing. Each teen spends his/her night doing something different, yet they all eventually convene at the party at the moon tower. It's like a combo of a day-in-the-life movie, an in-depth character study, and a great teen comedy. And it is of course the comedy that more then any thing explores the alienation and unsettling nature that teenagers feel, regardless of age or timeframe. We see this through such lines as: "I came here tonight to do two things: kick some ass and drink some beer. Looks like we're out of beer!" and "If I ever refer to these as the best years of my life remind me to kill myself." That captures how these kids feel about school, and about life. Cause hey, you want the best years of your life, forget high school. Try college
