    Fast Times at Ridgemont High

    ★★★½

    Overall pretty fun but some things aged pretty poorly. And I was actually so surprised to see that much on screen nudity given the time and what not and was relieved when I saw that the girls were 19 and 20 when they shot this. Cause they looked so incredibly young.

    While watching I wanted to give it 2 1/2 stars. It just isn't my type of film, it felt very documentarily, I never even thought it was acted enjoyably, it's literally beyond me how Frances got another Oscar for this, but overall it has some pretty pictures and the story, although depressing can be somewhat thought-provoking.

    But then I did some research and found out that other than Fern and Dave everyone else is literally a poor struggling nomad living…
