This highly appealing teen comedy created a host of new stars -- including Sean Penn -- and features a lively rock music soundtrack. The freewheeling story chronicles the sexual insecurities and adventures of a group of Southern California high school students. These shopping mall regulars experiment with drugs, surfing techniques and various fast-food secret sauce combinations.

Description

Cameron Crowe went undercover in a southern California high school to document the hilarious hijinx of teens in the eighties. Heckerling turned his book into a classic teen comedy, equal parts sex, stoners, sensitivity and satire. Many of the young cast went on to Hollywood fame. A milestone.

Notes

Based on factual articles written by Cameron Crowe, who later turned the stories into a book and then screenplay. Crowe returned to high school as an adult masquerading as a student for a year. This story chronicles his time there. Film debuts for actors Eric Stoltz, Anthony Edwards, and Nicolas Cage (who was credited under his real name, Nicolas Coppola). Nicolas Cage is the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola. Color by Technicolor. The cable television version of the film featured additional footage of Sean Penn. Its soundtrack was also changed. This film inspired a TV series, "Fast Times," that was broadcast on the CBS network in 1986. The film's source writer and screenwriter, Cameron Crowe, was creative consultant for the series. Actors Ray Walston and Vincent Schiavelli recreated their roles from the film. Frank Zappa's daughter, Moon Unit Zappa, appeared in the series as Barbara De Vilbiss. The TV theme was written by Danny Elfman and performed by Oingo Boingo. Additional cast: Scott Thomson and Pamela Springsteen. Additional credit: Rob Fahey (music, songs).
