Here’s a movie idea to save both Hollywood and humanity: The Adventures of Slater and Spicoli. Also, between this, Say Anything and Clueless, Cameron Crowe and Amy Heckerling are up there with John Hughes in terms of mastering the art of the teen film.

Even more fun than I remembered and of course, Spicoli steals the show. I love how Cameron Crowe’s script isn’t just funny but it also shows just how fast teens want to grow up, hence the title. All the characters are so memorable and the soundtrack is AWESOME. Also, I want 1982 Phoebe Cates to marry me.
