One of the alltime high school comedy classics harks back to 1982, based on a book written by Cameron Crowe, who disguised himself as a high schooler to get the characters and stories for said book. Amy Heckerling's movie version of the guys, gals, their shenanigans, and trials and tribulations of the students at Ridgemont High makes this a snapshot of 80's pop culture, full of memorable characters.
If I could do it over again, I'd probably hang out with the crowd of Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn), the blonde, long-haired surfer dude with David Lee Roth attitude who some say was "stoned since the third grade." That's accurate enough, as he and his buds vacate the orange VW van, a puff of smoke emerges from within, just like in Scooby Doo. His calling Mr. Hand (Ray Walston), the overstrict, overdisciplinary, Steve McGarrett (Hawaii Five-Oh) imitating history professor, a profanity is a classic, as is the pizza-in-the-class scene. For Spicoli, surfing's not a sport. It's a way of looking at the waves and saying, "Hey bud, let's party!"
If not, maybe with Mike Damone (Robert Romanus), ace ticket scalper and the king of cool in the school, the cooler guy who takes in the nerd as his friend. I could've used someone like him in high school. According to him, "the attitude dictates that you don't care if [a girl] comes, stays, l-ys, or prays, whatever happens, your toes are still tapping, and when that happens, you have the attitude." He is confidence man and propper-up of the shorter and shier Mark "the Rat" Ratner (Brian Backer), who gets his five point plan for free.

What a great movie! There are so many scenes burned into my brain, and I'm not just talking about those amazing four or five seconds when Phoebe Cates comes out of the pool.
Today's kids won't have a clue what's going on when the pop quiz gets handed out and everybody sniffs the paper. MMmmm... ditto paper......
I've heard that the Mark Ratner character was based on the guy that later went on to write Windows For Dummies. I hope that's true; it would be nice for the nerds to come out on top in the end!
If you're over 30 and you haven't seen this movie, go buy it right now. You'll be happy you did.

Fast Times At Ridgemont High is an awesome......totally awesome movie! Everything is great! I just watched it and I feel like watching it again. Everything from Sean Penn and his pizza delivery, or Phoebe Cates coming out of the pool, to Judge Reinhold in the bathroom. Everything in this movie is cool. This is one of those movies that you get your friends together and watch. My favorite characters have to be Mike, Rat, and, of course, Sean Penn as the stoned surfer, Jeff Spicoli. Sean Penn had the best lines for this entire movie. I also liked Brad Hamilton. He was a great brother and funny (100% Guaranteed Breakfast). Stacy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Linda (Phoebe Cates) are two very hot people! You'll get to see. Who can't forget the pool scene? The soundtrack rocks too. There are so many great songs! This movie is gnarly!
Overall, I loved this movie. It was hilarious, funny, and dramatic at the same time. Parents must be warned though. This movie was originally rated X, but they cut down some scenes (in the shed, the baseball dugout).
Rated R for strong nudity, strong sexual content, drug use, and brief strong language.

Fast Times At Ridgemont High is a monumental film for a lot of people. I was 3 or 4 when it came out, but this film would still work and ring true to people my age in this modern day and time. That's why this film is completely timeless. The premise is pretty simple. It's about a bunch of high school kids in the early 80's dealing with everyday life, which includes girls, boys, sex, drugs, sex, and, oh, did I mention sex?. After watching this hilarious and downright touching film, you wonder why Phoebe Cates isn't a bigger star. Her famous scene(not for children)is classic and the fantasy of every red blooded American male in the country. Sean Penn gives one of comedy's most memorable characters as stoner Jeff Spicolli. He is brilliant in this film. There has not been another teen/school movie like this that is as special or classic. There have been a few that came close. The rest of the cast is great: Judge Reinhold, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Forrest Whitaker, Ray Walston. This is a great film. A true comedy classic!.

I've really enjoyed reading all of these positive reviews. A lot of areas have been covered, and a lot of people quote their favorite parts in their preview titles. So I did the same.
Did you ever have a job as a teenager you really hated? In high school, I was in the marching band and DETESTED the uniforms. So naturally, I related when Judge Rheinhold's character took the job in the fried chicken joint. He's forced to make a delivery wearing that idiotic uniform, stops at a light, finds a pretty babe in the car next to him, and she breaks up with laughter. The next thing you know, his car's pulling away and there's food flying out the window!! Great!!
As a matter of fact, all of Hamilton's jobs have drama--almost having a trainee put a burger joint up in smoke, a run-in with an a-hole customer which costs him his job, then a hero in a 24/7 convenience store.
Sean Penn went on to become an accomplished dramatic actor and if you stopped him on the street and told him how pheonomenal he was in Fast Times, he'd probably punch you out. But he's sensational, he BECAME the part! Even during the breaks in shooting, he demanded to be called Spicolli, according to the late Ray Walston
For the older critics who had a problem with the promiscuity of the character played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, I say....lighten up! This was high school in the 80's, and it's lot worse today.
Lastly, Mark Ratner's friend, Damone, is a riot!! Everyone knew a guy like that, who talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk! He's giving out advice like an encyclopedia on women; meanwhile, he's sitting at home on Saturday night watching cartoons and is lost when he gets his chance with Stacy!
