Smoking weed and skipping school...ahh, high school. Pregnancy scares and getting caught in an awkward situation in the bathroom by your crush...ahh, high school. Hanging out in the mall food court during smoke breaks and the age-old tale of stoner student vs. uptight teacher...ahh, high school. Having your best bud sleep with your dream girl and knock her up...umm, high school? Do you ever wish that sometimes you can go back? Yeah, me neither. Apparently, Cameron Crowe did when he decided to pose as a high school student back in the early '80s. And, well, we're really glad he did because we ended up getting the book Fast Times at Ridgemont High: A True Story out of it, and of course, the hit film version of the book. The story focuses on a group of high school students from one extreme to the next. You have the surfer dude who hates school to the nerdy sidekick to a complete choad, the boy in lust with his sister's hot best friend and then everyone else you encounter in high school. Relive high school again this weekend, at midnight Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre (5458 W. Lovers Lane) when Fast Times at Ridgemont High makes a return to the big screen.
