The Canon Episode 47: FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH

Is this the definitive teen movie?

Here's how it usually works on The Canon: we get a guest and that guest nominates a movie. This week it was a little different: I tweeted that I was watching Fast Times at Ridgemont High for the show and Jake Fogelnest - yes, Hollywood's Jake Fogelnest - asked to be on the episode. 

The result? One of our best episodes, if you ask me. Jake was perfect for the episode, and I think Fast Times is one of those no-brainer movies that are clearly not only great but also impacted and defined a swath of teen movies to come. I might even go so far as to say this is the greatest teen movie of all time. At the very least it has the greatest cast of any teen movie ever. 

What do you think? As always, you can vote on the Wolfpop forums. As always I ask you to share this show with your friends (and enemies). And come back next week as we go deep into gore with Cannibal Holocaust for our Halloween episode!
