Top Critics’ Reviews
Fresh: A jumbled but appealing teen-age comedy with something of a fresh perspective on the subject.
Rotten: Director Amy Heckerling has failed to provide the raunch or poignancy that would interest young moviegoers, all of whom have seen American Graffiti and its 467 imitators. Ridgemont High? A nice place to visit, but who would want to transfer there?
Fresh: Fast Times will always be remembered for one thing: showing respect for and insight into the members of its core audience, something that was as rare in the 1980s as it is today.
Fresh: Great fun if not quite the great teen pic some believe it to be.
