Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982)

Rating: ***
Cast: Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, Judd Nelson

The ultimate teenage high school experience movie, this follows the adventures and experiences of several high school students and their preoccupations with sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll (but mostly sex). It offers some great funny moments and raises a lot of teen issues that we would all just rather forget. This film forever typecast Sean Penn as Jeff Spicolli, the brain-fried surfer dude, and forever burned the fantasy image of Phoebe Cates undressing in slow motion to The Cars' "Moving In Stereo" into the psyches of adolescent boys everywhere.
