Fast Times is a slightly exaggerated snap-shot of the American teen experience in the early 80's. Actually....to be more specific.....it's really a snap-shot of teen life in California....as opposed to the rest of America.....but most American teens of that era can relate to atleast part of the movie. It's popularity will probably befuddle a British or European audience.....since it portrays the unique American experience of that era. It's not a deep or well developed movie....it's just meant to poke fun at a certain era. Without living in the States during those years....most of the comedic aspects will likely escape you.
