Now considered one of the most iconic movies of the 80s teen comedy boom (it’s even on the Library of Congress’s Film Preservation List), Fast Times landed in theaters with a thud. It’s sympathetic and hilarious portrayals of SoCal teens as they cruise through malls, work part time jobs and talk endlessly about sex and dating has made it a classic. Fast Times launched the film careers of Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Lee, Judge Reinhold, Cameron Crowe and Amy Heckerling. It is also that rarest of things, a comedy about teens, for teens with an R-rating.
