Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)
This is (together with the movies Ferris Bueller's Day Off
and The Breakfast Club
quintessential high school
movie before the concept was overused and cheapened by subsequent movie releases of the genre.
Featuring a cast of future stars in the prime of their youth (Sean Penn, Forest Whitaker, Judge Reinhold and Jennifer Jason Leigh), this movie became particularly infamous due to the 'scene'
Yes, those who have seen it know what I'm talking about. It was rumored that most rentals of the videotapes of this movie got ruined due to the constant slow-motion/pausing-rewind-play people were doing to their tapes at that particular 'scene'
It's a very no holds barred movie, and a definite recommendation. 8/10 for me.
