Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, "borrows" a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago. On Ferris' trail is high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch him in the act.

Hilarious film; staple of the 1980s. John Hughes is at the top of his game, and watching the principal try and bust Ferris never gets old. However, it does contain A LOT of bad language. Most high school students will be ok with this, but parents should think twice before showing it to their youngsters. Otherwise, it would be family-friendly.November 20th, 2013 · Details
Classic movie. Just watched it again for kicks and giggles. I remember watching this show growing up wishing I could pull of the stunts that Ferris does. He pretends to be sick so that he can spend a day playing in the city with his best friend and girlfriend. He almost gets caught many times. I love the different actors! the personality of each one is awesome. This one is in the collection.June 5th, 2013 · Details
This is a classic and fun movie. It may, however, give teens all sorts of ideas on how to skip out on school. It has some witty and extremely fun scenes. The cast works well together.July 27th, 2012 · Details
