"Why Don't You Get A Job Spicoli?" 


Fast Times At Ridgemont High Review by ~vanessa r. aquino 09/24/09

"Fast Times At Ridgemont High" was ahead of its time back in 1982.  This film is very adult themed when it was released.  Teenage life encompasses everything.  It touches all sides of issues that teenagers face from peer pressure, sex, freedom, exploring feelings for a guy or girl, growing up and responsibilities. 

I was not aware the director of this film was a woman, Amy Heckerling!
As I reviewed the film for the second time, I am amazed of her accomplishments in this film, it being her first feature film. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amy_Heckerling
It's worth watching again and again.
