Totally Man! Like far Out. This movie nailed it. the hijinks, the sex, the stupidity of fast food restaurant managers, the crudeness and hardness of the the presumed alpha stud as so aptly portraited in the Damon character. Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Just thinking about the film now makes me relive my High School days all over again. This movie was to High School students of the 80's what Dazed and Confused was to High School students of the 70's. This hilarious comedy about the lives of students from every walk of life during a typical 80's High School year is a MUST have part of any film lovers collection. I saw this film when it was first released in 1982, and it is still as funny now as it was then. In fact, I refuse to watch this movie on TV, all hacked to bits. I will only watch it in it's true rated R form, which is why it is really unsuitable for children below the High School age to watch. I believe this movie captured some of the true essence of what it was like to grow up during that era. If anyone wanted to know what it was really like to grow up and go to school in the 80's, then Fast Times at Ridgemont High is the perfect film to suggest, despite the fact that some parents would, of course, deny some of the activities that are portrayed in the movie... no doubt to relieve themselves of some deeply hidden guilty pleasures. Watch this movie!!!
