Fast Times At Ridgemont High

Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a 1982 American teen coming-of-age comedy-drama film directed by Amy Heckerling and written by Cameron Crowe, adapted from his 1981 book of the same title. Crowe went undercover at Clairemont High School in San Diego and wrote about his experiences. The film was the directorial debut of Amy Heckerling and chronicles a school year in the lives of sophomores Stacy Hamilton and Mark Ratner and their older friends Linda Barrett and Mike Damone, both of whom believe themselves wiser in the ways of romance than their younger counterparts. The ensemble cast of characters form two subplots with Jeff Spicoli, a perpetually stoned surfer, facing off against uptight history teacher Mr. Hand, and Stacy's older brother, Brad, a senior who works at a series of entry-level jobs in order to pay off his car and ponders ending his two-year relationship with his girlfriend, Lisa.
