Movie synopsis
Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is a tricky but harmless fast-talker. But he knows how to have fun, which is exactly what he sets out to do when he feigns illness and talks his parents into letting him stay home from school. The perpetually lucky Ferris enlists his hypochondriac best friend, Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck), into springing his girlfriend, Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara), from class, and the three embark on a raucous downtown Chicago adventure. From Wrigley Field to the Art Institute of Chicago to a Polish pride parade, Ferris and his friends make the most of their day off. But Ferris, Sloane, and Cameron might not get away with playing hooky. Ferris's sister, Jeanie (Jennifer Grey), is determined to prove that Ferris is faking sick and make him pay for it, and the bumbling school dean, Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), is sure that Ferris is pulling a fast one. Another classic from writer-director John Hughes (SIXTEEN CANDLES, THE BREAKFAST CLUB), this film features a star turn from Broderick as the charismatic Ferris. Watch for Charlie Sheen as the juvenile delinquent in the police station and comedian Louie Anderson in a brief appearance as a flower deliveryman.

John Hughes at his best

Ferris Bueller's Day Off was another one of Director John Hughes's creations and it debuted in 1986. It is pure comedy and it is impossible not to break up laughing while watching it.

Ferris Bueller is a crafty, sneaky and fast-talking teen who is also funny and is clearly a good guy who just likes to have a good time and finds creative ways to have fun that push the envelope. He's the ideal prankster. He makes the jerks look like fools and looks out for his friends.

Ferris Bueller is what every teenager dreams to be--funny, popular, able to break the rules and get away with it, and lots of fun to be with.

The movie starts when Ferris Bueller, a senior in high school, feigns illness and tricks his rather clueless parents into thinking he's seriously ill. But as soon as they head off to work, Ferris switches to being wild and crazy. He gets his buddy, Cameron, out of his house and gets his girlfriend, Sloane, out of school, pretending to be Sloan's father and pleading a dead grandparent. From there, Ferris, Sloan and Cameron have the time of their lives as Ferris commandeers Cameron's dad's restored 1961 Ferrari and they have a day out on the town as they visit the Sears tower, eat out at a five-star restaurant, visit an art museum and go to a parade, where Ferris gets on a float and gets all of downtown Chicago swinging and dancing to his renditions of Danke Schoen and Twist and Shout by the Beatles and then watch a ball game at Wrigley Field.

But Ferris has his enemies--most notably his snotty twin sister, Jeannie, who resents his popularity and ability to get away with things. She is sure that her brother is really ditching school and sets out to prove it. Ferris's other great nemesis is Ed Rooney, the Dean of Students at his school and who makes it his life mission to bust Ferris--and very nearly succeeds.

In additon, this movie does a superb job of making fun of high school, from Ben Stein's role as the Economics teacher lecturing on in a monotone "...Does anyone remember what Vice-President called this in 1980...something D-O-O economics. Voodoo economics" to Jeffrey Jones as Ed Rooney, playing the mean and nasty administrator, to a gym teacher yelling at his class to hurry up and run their laps, while riding a golf cart. Though a comedy, Ferris Bueller does a remarkably good job of capturing the atmosphere of a typical high school. The sight gags and comedy are not as far from reality as one might think.

Viewers will enjoy watching Ferris emerge out of any dicey situation on top and with a grin and watching his sister and Rooney make fools out of themselves. Teenagers can watch this movie and feel that Ferris is being rebellious for them.

This is a good family movie. Despite a few cuss words, it is suitable viewing for nearly any age. It is pure comedy.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off has aged well as a movie. This film does not capture a lot of faddy trends in the area of fashion. Even after twenty years, it does not look particularly dated.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a must-watch for anyone who likes movies or is a teenager.

Ferris Bueller

This is one of those rare, really make ya feel good movies. It brings back so many memories of those wonderful teenage years! Senior skip day, what a trip down memory lane! One of John Hughes best films ever! A must see for the adult
with the teenager inside all of us. Matthew Broderick played the part perfectly. Alan Ruck as the nerdy sidekick, finding himself in the end. Mia
Sara...she was the ultimate girlfriend, beautiful, smart and stood by her man
no matter what. And Jeffrey Jones, the perfect personna of the high school principal. Wanted so bad to hang Ferris out to dry! And last but not least,
Jennifer Grey as the sister who as much as she wanted too, could not ultimately
turn in her brother in the end...family first! It's a great trip down memory
lane, one that should be seen and shared by families alike, that's why I had to
finally have my own copy of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Take A Day Off Ane Enjoy This DVD!

This may be hard to believe, but I was a teenager in the 1980's and I have never seen Ferris Bulller's Day Off in my entire life.

I finally did see the DVD and I wish I had seen it when it was out on the big screen!

This film was great, well you might have to put yourself back into the mindframe/time of the 1980's but it is worth it.

The fun part of looking at this movie today is seeing what type of computers schools used back in the day and the hair styles we had - what were we thinking!

I was pretty creative during my daily visits to the principal's office, but I culd have learned alot from Bueller! (My best line to a principal was this "No I did not throw the notebook at the kid and hit him, what happened is my notebook was airborne and he got in it's path which caused his face to interfere with the flight of my notebook!"

The "Bonus" features only included sub titles and a comentary.

i miss the 1980's!

Good for the average HS student

This movie is definatley what every highschool student dreams of doing on there day off. Along with all the twists and turns. Ferris pretends to be sick (Classic trick) and his parents fall for it. He then desides to go wild on the town. Of course his stupid principle suspects something is up due to many days out and the plot just gets even crazier. It is just funny to watch this stupid senario. Makes you wonder if anyone really tried it after seeing the movie. Then again if you try to be sick to get out of school you better hope your parents did not see this movie.
