"No Shirt, No Shoes, No Dice!" Speaking of the greatest movies of all time, this week marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, the film that marked the debut or provided breakthrough roles for Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sean Penn, Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, Nicolas Cage, Eric Stoltz, Anthony Edwards, Forrest Whitaker, and Bruce Springsteen's sister.

While I was too young to see Fast Times during its original theatrical run, the subsequent cable showings were watershed moments for an entire generation. Tony Ruegger has put together a massive and highly recommended fan site devoted to this fine cinematic achievement.
