Amy Heckerling made her debut in 1982 with
Fast Times at Ridgemont High, a teen comedy and period piece.
The film follows the lives of a group of high-school students as they go through
a new school year and their sexual experiences. There is Linda the experienced
girl (a waitress) who gives advice to the others. There is the shy 15-year old
virgin Stacey (also a waitress in the same restaurant) who pretends to be
older in order to sleep with an older guy.
There is the melancholy and even shier cinema attendant Rat who is in love
with Stacey. Unfortunately, Stacey likes Rat's best friend Mike and gets
pregnant of him. But Rat is nice and forgives her.
There is the good guy, Hamilton, who works at fast-food places but gets fired
all the time. Eventually, he will avert a robbery and be promoted to manager.
There is Jeff the punk who gets in trouble with the history teacher.
The film follows their maturing experiences with a touch of humour but little

Look Who's Talking
Clueless (1995) returns to the themes of her debut movie, i.e. it is
more a patchwork of storylines about a number of teenagers than a full-fledged
16-year old Cher is the most popular girl at Beverly Hills High School, a school for rich
Cher is also the most spoiled of all these kids, although her caring father
(a famous and powerful lawyer) gives her stern advice and her
older step-stepbrother Josh (a previous wife of Cher's father had him from
a previous husband), who reads philisophy, is disgusted by her attitude.
She says that her job is "to be cool".
Cher spends most of her time with her best (black and aggressive) friend
Cher's theory is that their two hated teachers would become more gracious if
they fell in lover with each other. She succeeds and her theory proves true,
thereby making her the hero of the class and getting her a good grade.
Cher, who doesn't have a driver license, is grounded by her father after a
third moving violation.
Then, always with Dionne's help, Cher tries to turn a new raw girl, Tai, into
beau Elton's girlfriend, despite the fact that Tai and a less popular guy,
long-haired Travis, like each other. But this time her tactic backfires:
after a party, Cher ends up in Elton's car who confesses to have a crush
on her, Cher. Rejected, Elton dumps her in the middle of nowhere and she gets
robbed at gunpoint.
Cher, all elegance and make-up, is disappointed in the way boys of
her own generation dress and behave. But then Christian comes around, a
new schoolmate who looks just like a model.
Cher gets a crush on him and wears a sexy new dress for her first date
(her father plainly tells him that he will kill him if anything happens
to Cher). That date happens to be a party where Josh the serious-minded
is also invited. Tai would be left alone if Jose didn't invite her to dance.
Christian comes to visit her and Cher is ready to give in to him, but instead
he runs away. Dionne's boyfriend reveals to Cher that Christian is gay.
They remain friend and Christian even saves Tai from some punks at the mall.
Cher fails the driving test badly.
Tai is in love with Josh and when Cher tries to change her mind Tai turns
against her ("you're a virgin who can't drive").
Only then she realizes that... she (Cher) has always been in love with her
Only then she realizes what a manipulative, superficial, self-absorbed person
And becomes a better daughter, sister, friend and person. She even helps
her father and Josh with a lawsuit they are working on. And ends up being
A light comedy in which very little happens.
Cher devotes herself to causes that (she thinks) would make people happier,
even if it is all based on her (materialistic and superficial) values.
Look Who's Talking (1989)
