Ferris Bueller's Day Off 
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off review
3/4 stars

Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) fakes a sickness to skip school. He contacts Sloane (Mia Sara), and his cynical best friend, Cameron (Alan Ruck) to spend time in Chicago before going their separate ways in college. Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) is highly jealous of his brother Ferris. Dean of Students, Edward Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) believes that Ferris’ condition is a hoax. The trio experience a game at Wrigley Field, Sears Tower, the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago Mercantile Exchange and being part of the Von Steuben Day Parade.

The picture had an effervescent soundtrack coupled with a witty screenplay. A few wonderful quotes from Ferris – “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” “A man with priorities so far out of whack doesn't deserve such a fine automobile.” “Isms” in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an "ism", he should believe in himself.” Some reservations this reviewer had were the believability of getting away with everything, showing how to fake an illness, lying and the ability to have things the protagonists way in a single day without blemishes was baffling. Despite these observations, having a film like this is such a great escapism from life’s tribulations. Delightful performances and loads of comical scenes were evident. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a well produced comedy that has timeless topics on peer pressure, priorities, relationships, educational flaws, jealousy and enjoying yourself while the chance is present.
