'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' returns to theaters nationwide this weekend
Fast Times at Ridgemont High is coming back to theaters this weekend -- just a mere 32 years after its theatrical release. Whoa, gnarly. Written by the great Cameron Crowe and featuring Sean Penn when he was still likable, Fast Times was the first rated R movie I successfully snuck into as a teen in the '80s. (I was snagged and ousted by the usher at a screening of Stir Crazy.)
It's part of CineMark's Classic Films Series, which is bringing back other '80s classics, including The Princess Bride, Big and Ferris Bueller.
Fast Times will screen Sunday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m. and again on Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 2 and 7 p.m. Check this link for theaters in your state and city. Sadly, no cinemas in Tampa Bay are showing it, but if you feel up for the drive, Cinemark Festival Bay Bay Mall in Orlando has it.

2. "What Jefferson was saying was, Hey! You know, we left this England place 'cause it was bogus; so if we don't get some cool rules ourselves - pronto - we'll just be bogus too! Get it?"
1. "Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it."
