Fast Times at Ridgemont High – Minute Movie Review

Montag, März 29th, 2010

Review:

Based on the book by screenwriter Cameron Crowe, the film details the adventures of a bunch of High School people during one year. The film almost single-handedly founded the genre known as teen comedy, with the ever popular themes like sex, drugs and rock & roll surviving to this date. It doesn’t really have much of a plot, but it is an often funny look at teenage life that manages to entertain for the most part.

Random Observations:

Fast Times at Ridgemont High at the IMDb

First film role for Nicolas Cage, who for the one and only time is credited with his birth name. He’s also on screen for about half a second.

It’s really strange to see Sean Penn as a surfer/stoner, considering the roles he has taken lately.
