Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a great snapshot of teenage life. You will see a young actor named, Sean Penn, as he starts his career. You’ll see how he because one of the best actors of today. Although, I believe he was using the “Method” technique at the time of film. Maybe, I’m wrong about that. The acting from everyone was superb but the film was a little on the scuzzy side. It’s definitely fast times at Ridgemont high.
