I can't believe the director of this movie keeps standing for the out and out censorship of this! It's (at least) the third release of it on DVD, and this latest (Nov. 2004) try is still a dud. The big problem remains the scenes which they only include in the cable TV versions of this, but keep cutting from the DVD. Why the heck do they?

One of the missing scenes is a very cool safe sex/birth control scene in the mall, for instance. Fast Times sticks out as one of the very rare films that this odd censorship has been performed on. In fact, out of thousands of releases since DVDs started in 1995, this is almost the only one this has ever happened to!

So again we can only ask why? WHY?

"Fast Times at Ridgemont High" Is a strong contender for the best teen movie from the eighties.
The case for the movie is easy to make: It is written by Cameron Crowe, who wrote Jerry Maguire, Say Anything, and Almost Famous. It is beautifully filmed and directed. (Director is Amy Heckerling, who apart from being awefully cute has made such wonderful movies as Clueless.) It is funny and real. And it has a magnificent cast of young actors who where unknowns then.
The surfer/stoner is famously played by Sean Penn in one of his first roles, and he is awesome. Jennifer Jason Leigh is perfect as the young innocent fifteen-year-old. (Amazingly she was about 20 when she played it, but you'd never know it.)
And Phoebe Cates... As Amy Heckerling says in a featurette: The boys just loves Phoebe... the rental cassettes always track a lot around the place where she takes off her top, they've been freeze-framed so much..." Which is as good a reason as any to get the DVD version, they slow-mo and freeze-frame a lot better... But seriously, Phoebe is a wonderful actress who has been woefully underused by Hollywood. And she is also just stunningly cute to boot. Even if this film had nothing else going for it, get it for her. (She is also excellent in the later film Princess Caraboo, and she is buck nude in the light "Paradise", which I hope they will put on DVD soon.)

If there is a must see movie about high school life in the 80's....this is it. Southern California high school life at it's finest, with the help of a lot of stars-Sean Penn, Eric Stoltz, Jennifer Jason-Leigh, Judge Reinhold, and who could forget Ray Walston as "Mr. Hand". You WILL enjoy this movie! This is a "KEEPER".

I first saw this movie when I was in 9th grade. I loved it. Over the past 21 years I have watched it many times. I practically have it memorized. It is a true classic. When they released this version I thought for sure they would have the deleted scenes that were only shown on the cable tv version. I was very upset. I have only seen the deleted scenes one time. I wanted to see them again. Why even release this movie again without the deleted scenes? I don't understand. Sure there is some different commentary. But, the movie is the exact same as before. Releasing it again the way they did this time is just a waste of time.

Okay, there's good news and bad news. For anyone who is wondering whether the Blu-Ray version is censored just like the DVD, yes! Unfortunately, Universal didn't even think about improving the Blu-Ray version by including the deleted scenes even in a separate section.

The other negative is that this Blu-Ray version is of the Java-based type and it is configured in a way that not only causes slower loading times (as expected) than non-Java Blu-Ray discs but it makes the player stream the latest previews on-line every time the disc is loaded. So the waiting time can be excruciating. Thankfully, you can skip the streaming previews.

The Blu-Ray is definitely much better than the DVD in terms of picture and sound quality. Picture detail is much crisper, contrast is much stronger, blacks and shadow details are much deeper and darker, and colors are more vivid and less muted than the DVD version. The sound is remixed in surround for the first time. But the movie runs slightly faster than on the DVD version (no big deal).

If you can get the Blu-Ray for under $12, then go for it.

I had never seen this movie and I wasn't sure I wanted to see it but it keeps popping up on lists of great films. I watched it and didn't think much until I watched it again with narration by Cameron Crowe and the director, Amy Herkerling. I highly recommend that you watch it with the commentary. It was nice to realize that Cameron Crowe, who had been a working teenage kid writing for Rolling Stone, returns to high school at age 21. He talked a high school principal into letting him attend high school, posing as a teenager, for a book he wanted to write. These are his real experiences of teenagers in high school in the early 1980's. I liked what he said -- he was surprised at how many teenagers had jobs back then. They went to school all day, went to work at night and weekends, and they lived in this almost adult-like world with jobs and making adult-like decisions for which they really weren't prepared. Now here's the reality: these hard working teenagers grew up to be the mom's and dad's of the new kids you run into who don't work and act as though they are entitled to things. These 1980's teenagers created the little entitled brats of today. Isn't that hilarious? LOVED IT.
