Fast Times At Ridgemont HighClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Academy Award®-winner Sean Penn leads an all-star cast (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold, Ray Walston) in this hilarious portrayal of a group of southern California high school students and their most important subjects: sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Amy Heckerling's (Clueless) directorial debut brings to life first-time screenwriter Cameron Crowe's (Almost Famous) insider's view of teenage American life in the 1980's. Featuring decade-defining music from The Go-Go's, Oingo Boingo and The Cars, plus film debuts of future stars Nicolas Cage, Eric Stoltz and Anthony Edwards, Fast Times at Ridgemont High remains as fresh and funny today as it was a generation ago when it defined the outrageous and bold teen comedy genre.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A jumbled but appealing teen-age comedy with something of a fresh perspective on the subject.
Rotten: Director Amy Heckerling has failed to provide the raunch or poignancy that would interest young moviegoers, all of whom have seen American Graffiti and its 467 imitators. Ridgemont High? A nice place to visit, but who would want to transfer there?
Fresh: Fast Times will always be remembered for one thing: showing respect for and insight into the members of its core audience, something that was as rare in the 1980s as it is today.
Fresh: What plot there is garnishes itself with an array of such like-minded sensibilities that you'd be hard pushed to find much in the way of fault.
Phoebe cates takes her top off.
not that cheap
same movie is available now in re-release at Best Buy for $6.00...
Why does iTunes insist on charging more for a digital copy than for a hard copy with materials costs and shipping costs?
Awesome! Totally awesome!
I love this movie...
