Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Relive the 1980s with this Original Teen Comedy

In 1982, Amy Heckerling directed her debut movie with a teen comedy based on a best-selling book and screenplay by the later Academy Award winner - Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous), then a young writer who worked for Rolling Stone magazine. Called the “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, it had a very young cast featuring Sean Penn (in a superb stoner role), Judge Reinhold, the beautiful Phoebe Cates, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Robert Romanus besides the film debuts of Nicolas Cage, Eric Stoltz and Anthony Edwards. Universal Pictures gave it a limited release unsure of its potential. However, its candid portrayal of the teen generation of those days and a splendid all-star performance, ensured a fantastic opening and subsequent nationwide release across America and beyond.

Since then, even after 25 years, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” has consistently remained popular and is considered by many fans and critics alike as one of the most original pieces of the 80s American Cinema or rather, an original teen slice of life movie that still has social relevance.

I was in my kindergarten when Fast Times at Ridgemont High released and I didn’t see it until I was a mid teen, when I inadvertently rented it on a videotape from my neighborhood video rental assuming it to be a typical teen sex comedy (as indeed it was flasely advertised). Thanks to a friend, you can now relive this popular snapshot of the 80s teen culture and appreciate its original charm. Download and enjoy.
