I was looking around and it seems like 200-300 is about normal?
The price depends on the shop, the size of the car, and the grade of film used. The higher end films are supposed to be better for heat rejection (ceramic/metallics/ etc) vs the basic dyed films.

Mine was kind of expensive, but the windshield was the most expensive single piece of glass, the rest was less than 300 for the shop's higher end film but the windshield alone was nearly half that again, which seems like quite a lot when you think about it, but it was my birthday present to myself this year, well that and the car itself, but she arrived a tad early.
