    Product Description

    Dazed and Confused 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. Fast Times at Ridgemont High This critically acclaimed cult favorite, written and directed by Richard Linklater (The School Of Rock), explores the last day of school - and one wild night - in the lives of high school students in 1976. Complete with bongs and bell bottoms, macrame and mood rings, and featuring classic rock music by Aerosmith, Black Sabbath and KISS, this superb ensemble cast of up-and-comers (Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Parker Posey and Milla Jovovich) delivers an enduring film that Rolling Stone called "spectacularly funny!" 1976 was a time they'd never forget…if only they could remember…

    A remastered set with new 5.1 Dolby Surround audio, commentary tracks, new documentaries and deleted scenes.
    Fast Times at Ridgemont High
    Before he became an overrated filmmaker, Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous) was a reporter for Rolling Stone who was so youthful looking that he could go undercover for a year at a California high school and write a book about it. He wrote the script for this film, based on that book, and it launched the careers of several young actors, including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, and, above all, Sean Penn. The story line is episodic, dealing with the lives of iconic teen types: one of the school's cool kids, a nerd, a teen queen, and, most enjoyably, the class stoner (Penn), who finds himself at odds with a strict history teacher (a wonderfully spiky Ray Walston). This is not a great movie but very entertaining and, for a certain age group, a seminal movie experience. --Marshall Fine

    Dazed & Confused
    You remember high school? Really remember? If you think you do, watch this film: it'll all really come racing back. After changing the world with the generation-defining Slacker, director Richard Linklater turned his free-range vérité sensibility on the 1970s. As before, his all-seeing camera meanders across a landscape studded with goofy pop culture references and poignant glimpses of human nature. Only this time around, he's spreading a thick layer of nostalgia over the lens (and across the soundtrack). It's as if Fast Times at Ridgemont High was directed by Jean-Luc Godard. The story deals with a group of friends on the last day of high school, 1976. Good-natured football star Randall "Pink" Floyd navigates effortlessly between the warring worlds of jocks, stoners, wannabes, and rockers with girlfriend and new-freshman buddy in tow. Surprisingly, it's not a coming-of-age movie, but a film that dares ask the eternal, overwhelming, adolescent question, "What happens next?" It's a little too honest to be a light comedy (representative quote: "If I ever say these were the best years of my life, remind me to kill myself."). But it's also way too much fun (remember souped-up Corvettes and bicentennial madness?) to be just another existential-essay-on-celluloid. --Grant Balfour

    5.0 out of 5 stars High-water marks for teensploitation/stoner comedy January 1, 2005
    This two-pack is an amazing pairing of like-minded high school comedies that are also suitable contrasts in that "Fast Times..." was generally a contemporary "classic" defining of its time (the frosted-blonde locks and Vans sneakers found their way IMMEDIATELY even to my burg of an Atlanta suburb high school in Lilburn, GA and fostered a class of Spickoli wanna-bes), whereas "Dazed..." was essentially a nostalgia piece, a throwback film designed to recall another time entirely.

    Both films do as fine a job of depicting the reality of high school life as being equally dismal and comic, categorizing the cliques that were more specifically targeted in the John Hughes films of the 1980's as being less than specific sub-groups than being variations of the same theme; we're all somewhere between childhood and adulthood, and we're all equally screwed.

    Both films are also similar in that they highlight the performances of actors who would eventually become well-established within the industry (even going so far as to win an Academy Award in Sean Penn's case) in the early stages of their careers; Sean Penn and Jenifer Jason Leigh in "Fast Times..." and Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey in "Dazed...", to say nothing of the actors in smaller roles (Nicolas Cage and Anthony Edwards in "Fast Times..." and Parker Posey Milla Jovovich in "Dazed...", just to name a few).

    As a suburbanite old enough to remember both eras covered in these two films (I could've been anyone's little brother in "Dazed..." and could've passed for Mark Rattner in "Fast Times..."), I can heartily vouch for the authenticity of both movies as well as the competance with which both screenplays were written.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An Oldie but a Goodie October 6, 2005
    This party pack should be a no brainer purschase for anybody fond of the 60's/70's stoner party era. "Dazed and Confused" is a movie which portrays a typical high school where the new seniors are eagar to start hazing the new freshman, a regular ritual preformed at the school. For the boys its a few paddlings to the butt with a wooden paddle that all the seniors make and take pride and creativity in making. For the girls it's less painful with only the freshman cheerleaders getting soaked in miscellaneous items such as raw eggs, ketchup, mustard, etc. The movie focuses heavily on one boy that breaks his way in to the senior group and ends up hanging out with them regularly including attending parties with them, hanging out at the pool hall, and even smoking weed with the guys. In the end it just shows a typical party night for that high school. All in all the movie is wonderfully done with accurate cars of the time and usual night activities (going to the drive-in diners and hanging out at the pool hall). The actors in the movie were excellent and some sparking the beginning to their very successful career with this movie. A must see! As for "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" this movie is similiar to "Dazed and Confused". It has similiar qualities Dazed in that all the kids in the movie are all about partying and having a good time. The main character of the movie, Jeff Spicoli, is a huge stoner that shows up to class late aggravating one teacher in particular, Mr. Hand the teacher that thinks everybody on dope, who ends up getting his "stole time" back from Jeff in the end. The movie also focuses on Mark Ratner and Damone, the man who helps Mark with his love life and ends up eventually steal Mark's dream girl away from her and getting her pregnant, something he pays for in the end. The movie is very good and shows high school life in a slightly dramatized comical way, a great movie for anybody who likes "Dazed...".

    Obviously a worth while purchase as you get two of the original teen/stoner comedies.

    Fast Times at Ridgemont High
    Acting: 4 1/2 star (decent to good acting by most of the cast, but Sean Penn makes this movie great)
    Plot: 5 star (delightfully simple plot that has many different stories flowing and intertwiningat once, all of which intersting)
    Production: 4 1/2 star (obviously has an old-school look to it, but still feels extremly geniune to 80s cuture)
    Overall: 5 star (in my opinion, the better of the two movies)

    Dazed and Confused
    Acting: 5 star (100% believable, many promising young actors including two of my favorites Ben Affleck and Joey Lauren Adams)
    Plot: 4 star (still intersting, but I felt as though the stories in "Fast Times" had more depth)
    Production: 4 1/2 star (nostalgic feel that is absolutely infectious)
    Overall: 4 1/2 star (not quite as good as "Fast Times" but still a great film and a cult classic must-have)
