Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

One of the best teen flicks of all time!

Ferris Bueller (played superbly by Matthew Broderick), is everybody's favorite guy and an expert at fooling his parents. He's handsome, cool, funny fearless, and a very well liked young man by everyone in his community. One day, Ferris wakes up and decides that he doesn't want to go to school. So he whips up a clever scheme that fools his parents, and persuades his lovable but extremely paranoid best friend, Cameron (Alan Ruck) into lending him a sports car which the pride and joy of his father. They drive to pick up his beautiful girlfriend, Sloane at school and head off to Chicago for fun and adventure. However, 2 people are not fooled: the overzealous and crazed school Dean Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) and Ferris's younger sister, Jeanie (Jennif...

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off review

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 doe...

Save Ferris!!!!

Oh, God- if only it were that easy. I try to ditch school and the teacher phones home to ask how I'm feeling, and... well. Yes, obviously it's no cinch for Ferris to not get caught, but as we learn, Ferris Bueller never gets caught. Sure it's no sophisticated Oscar winning comedy but I'll watch it over 'Shakespeare In Love' any day. Why? It's light, it's easy, you don't have to stop and think to understand the jokes, it's one of those stupid comedies that you can't resist. One of those movies that you keep in the video drawer and watch on a rainy day... it's also a movie you don't want your kids to get ideas from. I haven't seen many of Matthew Broderick's films but from those I did, this is my favorite (I mean Godzilla, eh ok, but Inspector Gadget, in the old Jewish words of wisdom: Oy V...

Abe Froman, sausage king of chicago.

Ferris Buller (Broderick) is a cult icon that no one seems to be able to touch. Of all of his roles Matthew Broderick will always be known as Ferris Buller. The entire movie is told from the perspective of 3 people Ferris, Samone, and Cameron. They all have their own unique personalities. Cameron being the wimp, always afraid of getting caught, and unsure of himself from the upbringing he had, but gets involved in all of Ferris's plans as Ferris is his best friend. Samone, Ferris's girlfriend, she has a wild side and will do just about anything Ferris comes up with because it will be exciting. And then there is Ferris. He will do anything just to do it. He doesn't like school as he has been absent 9 times in the course of that year.
He has such confidence in himself that he doesn't fe...
