Ferris Bueller's Day Off
1986 American Film Directed & Written by John Hughes
Starring Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jeffery Jones and Jennifer Grey
It’s a fantastic spring day, and their final school year is almost over. That’s all the reason Ferris Bueller needs to declare an unofficial day off from classes. Concocting a brilliant plan that has everyone but his sister and the high school principal fooled, Bueller and company head off for a day of outrageous fun in Chicago.
For many, the movie defines a generation. Ferris' commentary throughout the movie is hilarious and irreverent, giving a voice to those on the borderline between Generations X and Y. It’s a witty and fast-paced film, not relying on the bathroom humor and physical comedy that most teenage and college comedies do these days. Y
With John Hughes in the director’s chair, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is '80s comedy at its very best.
