  • Nascent filmmaker and then-Rolling Stone journalist Cameron Crowe went undercover in a southern California high school to document the hilarious hijinx of teens in the 1980s. Director Amy Heckerling turned his book into a classic teen comedy--equal parts sex, stoners, sensitivity, and satire. Many of the young cast--most notably, Sean Penn and Jennifer Jason Leigh--went on to Hollywood fame. A milestone in '80s teen flicks.

    Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judge Reinhold, Edward Ernest Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, Ray Walston, Eric Stoltz, Robert Romanus, Brian Backer, Pamela Springsteen, Martin Brest
  • Critic Reviews
    "...The really good part of FAST TIMES is Sean Penn as a spaced-out, irresponsible surfer....Penn is a joy to watch at work....Similarly, Judge Reinhold is terrific..."

    "...All these young actors are relaxed, funny and natural. But the movie's real scene stealer is Sean Penn..."
    New York Times

    "...More sophisticated than the average high-school romp. There's an inspired turn from Sean Penn..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...It's often thought of as the quintessential 1980s teen flick....It portrayed real teens dealing with real issues..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[This] reality-inspired testament to the cliques, pitfalls, and accidental hilarity of being a teenager coined most of high-school-movie short-hand..."

    "...Lifted by Sean Penn's hugely charismatic, doped-up surfer dude..."
    Total Film

    "With its surface zest complementing melancholy underpinnings, director Amy Heckerling's take on a smart Cameron Crowe script ambushed everyone who expected just another teen comedy."
