Before all the slapstick, before re-writing "Home Alone" umpteen times and before selling his soul to "Disney Pictures Inc.", John Hughes was believed to be THE scribe for teen angst. He wrote eloquently of it in "Sixteen Candles", "The Breakfast Club" and "Pretty in Pink". And with "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", he creates a person and a time in life that just about anyone who's ever been a teenager can relate to.Who hasn't known someone like Ferris Bueller Broderick ? Someone who always has a plan, someone who made <more>
loafing off an art form, someone who could fall in a barrel of you-know-what and come out smelling like a rose?All he wants to do is take a day off from school and enjoy the day in Chicago - simple enough, but he must also try and convince his best friend Cameron Ruck and his best girl Sara to join him and, in the process, learn to enjoy what life has to offer.Naturally, there is a tyrannical school dean Jones who is determined to catch Ferris in the act of hookey and Ferris' own sister Grey, pre-nose job who has it in for her brother, the "trouser-snake". There are funny situations throughout the movie, and the characters are ones that grow on you, especially Ruck's worry-wart portrayal of Cameron Frye, constantly fretting about his dystalic, cursing his father and nearly drowning in a pool, all in the name of friendship.Sara has less to do, but she plays the object of desire well, and Ferris' passion for her is understandable. At least he thinks about the right things, like what their lives would be like after high school.All the way from beginning to end, this movie is a great trip in search of fun, relaxation, not taking life too seriously and how to sing Wayne Newton songs in the middle of a parade. You want to catch vintage John Hughes and classic '80s teendom at its best? Seize this "Day"!Ten stars for "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".
I can see why people just love this movie. (by holeinthahead)
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is the funniest 80's movie EVER! I can list some reasons why I liked this movie so much.1. Matthew Broderick brings such joy to us playing Ferries Bueller, a character no one would hate. Ferris NEVER gets caught, is an expert at fooling his parents, everybody likes him, and nobody can avoid his favor and all. I want to be just like him!2. Cameron, a geek friend of Ferris, is someone that portrays everybody's weakness. He is afraid of his parents, negative, and also very sensitive of his father's favorite car. This actor who plays Cameron <more>
was very, very good.3. The principal who tries to prove that Ferris is not innocent and also kind of jealous of Ferris, is the most hilarious character in this movie. He sorta reminds me of my principal at High School.4. Jennifer Grey plays Ferris's annoyed sister. She was great, and her bad attitude was somewhat hilarious.5. Charlie Sheen's cameo of a guy in police station was absolutely funny.6. This is John Hugh's BEST flick ever. 7. Mia Sara was sweet, she played Ferris's pretty girlfriend.8. The most memorable scene was "Twist and Shout" scene, where all people dance in this song with Ferris lip-synching.9. Cameron's speechless and hopeless stare was excellent.10. After watching this movie, I am planning to take a Day-Off of my own!Overall, I give A+ for being the best teenage movie.
Not just one of the best comedies of all time, but one of the best movies PERIOD (by Smells_Like_Cheese)
My friends knowing that I'm a huge film buff asked me to come up with a list of my favorite movies of all time, when it came down to number one, there was one film that stood out in my head that I knew I could watch over and over again and never get sick of: Ferris Bueller's Day Off. One of the best comedies of all time, Ferris Bueller is a movie that just stands the test of time. How anyone could not love this film is beyond any of my understanding, Ferris Bueller is my hero among many others. John Hughes is usually remembered more for The Breakfast Club, which is an incredible movie <more>
as well, but I think this was his masterpiece. He said in an interview that this was his childhood, getting his wife and best friend and skipping out on school to go down town and just have a good time. If you are a Chicago citizen, you've pulled a Ferris Beuller's day off too, it's like a law here, lol, if you haven't, I pity you. The reason that this movie works is because of it's outrageous story that everyone wants to live, Matthew Broderick, there was no other choice, he is who everyone wants to be: Ferris Bueller.Ferris Bueller is a teenager who fakes out his parents on being sick, even though it is his worst performance of being ill, somehow it works and his parents let him stay home. He takes the gorgeous day outside, takes his really sick best friend and his girlfriend and goes into beautiful Chicago for a blast of good times. I'm not kidding fellow Chicagoians, this is the best Chicago movie! Ferris has two problems though, his principal who is sick of being made a fool of and decides to bust Ferris on his fake illness. And his sister Jeanie, who cares more about Ferris's life than her own and just wants to prove that he's faking it.Even though, you have to admit that it's a bit unrealistic that it is broadcast throughout Chicago that Ferris is "dying" and no one notices that he's singing in the Chicago parade, on a field trip to the Art Institute with an elementary class, getting "snootie" with a waiter at Chicago's finest restaurant, and catching the Cub's home run ball at Wrigley Field, you just have fun and cannot stop laughing. Plus you have got to love Edward Rooney, the obsessed principal who is actually sicker than Ferris in one way of putting it. He goes through the whole city to find him just so Ferris doesn't make a fool of him, but he fails on all levels because Ferris is just that awesome. The scene between him and Grace when Cameron prank calls to get Ferris' girlfriend out of school is just too hilarious and will have you in stitches. I don't know what else to honestly say other than this movie is the best comedy to watch if you are looking for a great laugh. So sit, back and enjoy because " life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and take a look around once in a while, you might miss it"; my philosophy. I will love Ferris Bueller till the day I die.10/10
Smart A*s v. The Establishment -- Ferris Bueller Rules! (by mdm-11)
Ferris Bueller was either loved or hated by his peers for always getting away with anything he'd do. Some would want him expelled, others want him for Class President. On this extremely eventful day, the audience is invited to follow Ferris, his best pal and his girlfriend from morning to afternoon when they all should have been in school , enjoying a holiday declared by the resourceful Ferris Bueller.They get to speed on the freeway in a Ferrari, sing "Danke Schoen" on an Octoberfest Float, eat at the most exclusive restaurant in town and always keep just one step ahead of a <more>
furious principal in hot pursuit. With fake computer grade and attendance records, Ferris has it made.The scene where the principal hitches a ride on a school bus after having been "torn up" by Doberman watch dogs is worth the ticket price Oh Yeah! . This is one of the funniest "high school prankster movies" ever! Has it been 20 years already? This is a definite Cult Classic! Right up there with Animal House and Caddy Shack.
Decades have gone by and new generations continue to relate to this comedy (by estebangonzalez10)
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."In only a span of six years, John Hughes managed to direct some of the best comedies from the 80's which surprisingly hold up very well to this day. Ferris Bueller's Day Off is still regarded as a classic in the genre and despite being a simple mainstream movie, Matthew Broderick delivers such an iconic performance that many teens continue to fall in love with his character as the decades pass. The gags are handled with perfect comedic timing and the soundtrack has become such <more>
a recognizable tune in pop culture. I don't know exactly what it is that has made this such a beloved film amongst American teenagers, but it seems to transcend generations over time because of its accessibility. It's a light comedy about being young and mischievous that simply seems to delight and captivate audiences who are looking for some form of escape. It's rare for a film with a simple premise like this to continue captivating audiences over time and even those teens who watched it in the 80's and are now mature decide to go back and revisit it for nostalgic purposes or to introduce it to their now teenage sons. This is just further proof that no one had the comedic touch that Hughes had in the 80's with his teenage comedies. I still prefer Planes, Trains, and Automobiles as his go to movie, but Ferris Bueller was a delightful experience. I look forward to catching up with some more of his classic films. I remember having seen classic scenes of this movie, but this was my first time watching it from beginning to end and I was delighted and surprised because I didn't think I would ever like Broderick as much as I did here. This is by far his best performance.The film takes place in Chicago where we are introduced to Ferris Bueller Matthew Broderick , a senior in High School who has decided to take the day off from school by fooling his parents into thinking he's sick. Ferris constantly breaks the fourth wall and speaks to the audience letting them know what he's thinking. His plan is so well thought out that even his friends at school think he's developed a serious condition and are trying to raise money for his treatment. He's the sort of guy that everyone in school dreams of being and his life motto is simply to enjoy life to the fullest. He personifies the spirit of youth and that is what makes him such a likable guy despite acting irresponsable at times. The only people who don't believe him are his sister, Jeanie Jennifer Grey , who is angry everyone keeps on falling for his lame excuses, and the school principal Ed Rooney Jeffrey Jones who is determined to discover his lie and make him lose the school year for it. Ferris has everything planned out very carefully and is convinced his plan will work. He calls his best friend, Cameron Frye Alan Ruck , who has also taken a sick leave, but in his case he's really feeling bad. Ferris convinces him to come pick him up and together they come up with a plan to help Ferris's girlfriend, Sloane Mia Sara , get out of classes. In a hilarious scene the duo call Principal Rooney impersonating Sloane's father and asking him to give his daughter permission to leave the school because her grandmother has passed away. Ferris then convinces Cameron to take his father's Ferrari and the adventure begins for the three friends through the streets of Chicago. Hughes has always excelled as a screenwriter and he is responsible for some of the funniest comedies from the 80's and 90's. He didn't direct as many films, but he has been involved with many scripts. In Ferris Bueller he seems to have written a simple but perfectly executed script of a young teenager who is trying to live life to the fullest. He could've come out as cocky, but there is some heart to his character and it becomes incredibly hard not to root for him, especially when Hughes put so much emphasis during the opening scene portraying the dullness of High School life and then introducing Principal Rooney as such a douchebag. The scenes where he is desperately trying to uncover Ferris's plan are incredibly cartoonish and over the top, but it is funny nonetheless. There are also a few heart felt scenes between Ferris and Cameron which make his character even more likable despite his bad influence. Broderick delivers the performance of his career and there are very few actors who can break the fourth wall the way he did here without interrupting the flow of the story the other who comes to mind is John Cusack . There is also a great scene in which Ferris covers one of The Beatle's song in a parade that simply adds to the already amazing soundtrack. Jones is hilarious as Rooney and it's not often that these over the top villains are portrayed well. He never comes off annoying, and that's something difficult to achieve. Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a comedy that has transcended time and generations and it may come as a surprise to many considering it's such a light and simple premise, but Hughes manages to work his magic. http://estebueno10.blogspot.com/
Ferris Bueller's day off is an inspiration to everyone that understands the complexity of high school. Ferris Bueller Mathew Broderick is an American Idol to all in this country. Everyone can appreciate the movie magic that is created when he takes of in the red car. The ingenuity of a moving, mechanical sleep dummy gets him started and on the right path to a truly successful day off. The plot is carefully orchestrated with Ferris Bueller Broderick as a wise-cracking high school senior from the fictional northern Chicago suburb of Shermer, Illinois in reality, Lake Forest, Illinois , <more>
who decides to skip school Lake Forest High School for a day on the town by pretending to be sick. He convinces his nervous friend, Cameron Ruck to take his father's carefully restored 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California out for a spin, although Cameron's father has so little trust in him that he has memorized the car's mileage. Ferris makes the promise to erase any miles they put on the car by running the car in reverse when they return. Masquerading as her father, Ferris springs his junior girlfriend Sloane Sara from school on the premise that her grandmother has died. this is a truly remarkable film. This movie simply cannot be subjected to being graded by the same criteria as any other movie. It is completely original. To attempt to assess the acting in this movie is just stupid and pretentious. I have yet to see a movie that stands out in my collection which is considerably large as does this. Whether you are looking for depth or just comedy, which i think this movie achieves with class. Aimed at a younger generation of the time, it's truly surprising how much credit this movie gives to its audience; the esoteric conversations, the humor-in-dialogue-form, and the lack of crudeness is significantly above meant-for-the-average. This movie delivers any message a viewer may wish to find with class such that the movie/characters establish es an almost intimate relationship with the audience which must feel flattered by the highly intelligent work of art this movie is. It's a compliment to its viewer. Nine out of ten.
Not just a classic of the 80s, but of any decade (by Agent10)
Matthew Broderick looked so brilliant in those days. While this film single handedly made him Ferris Bueller forever, at least this is a film that can be seen all throughout the years without dating too badly. Sure, the music and props will signify a time of discontent and bad hairdos, but the idealistic look of a man simply wanting to ditch school has never been made more daringly and charmingly. Everything about this film was gold, from the postmodern "conversations" with the audience to the little back stories which seem to shape the overall canvas of the film. While Alan Ruck <more>
was way too old to play in this movie, at least he proved to be a great opposite to the cool and nonchalant Ferris. Gross-out comedies may now be the norm, at least we can look back to this film and enjoy a good, genuine laugh.
Spoilers herein.John Hughes had made a few `straight' teen movies before this: that's where the world of the movie -- though abstract -- is to be taken at face value. The actors actually try to play their characters, in fact Hughes generally tries to find actors that already are those characters.But he tried something else with Molly Ringwald starting with `Breakfast Club' where he cast her `against type.' Much of that film depended on a notion of acting to be someone else. Here he takes the next step, this time with Broderick. And this time, he gets a seasoned, self-aware <more>
actor.This time, the story is not about teen angst associated with self-identity, but about the joy of the con. The pleasures of being someone else which is all most kids have anyway . Broderick's stage experience before this was all in roles where he winked at the audience: `See what I do.' A couple years later, Bruce Willis would reintroduce this style of acting to the big picture, but here we have it early.The tip-off is those moments when Ferris -- or is it Broderick? -- looks straight at you and tells you about the role he is playing: Broderick playing a role of a kid who is playing a role. We have the `Mr Peterson' bit; the `sausage king' bit; the performance in the parade; the fake-in-the-bed bit shades of `Home Alone' , the sick six year old bit; and finally the actor telling us to just go home. Its all acting about acting: a teen's life is all about adopting a persona.Today, this seems normal, but in its time, it was pretty revolutionary film for a mainstream product. Its the reason this is remembered so fondly, because for many youngsters -- those who never learn to read intelligently -- it was the first encounter with reflexive art. The previous generation got their's from the Beatles and Dylan. I'm not sure what teen film predecessors there could be, but this may be where the whole explosion of non-ironic irony in teen films comes from.That redhead Stephanie Blake character is important. Look for her.Ted's Evaluation: 3 of 4 -- Worth watching.
This movie is a comedy classic of the 80's! Ferris Bueller Matthew Broderick is a teenager boy who thinks that ''life moves pretty fast. if you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.'' He is a master of skipping classes and very popular not only in his school, but in his city. His parents always believes in his excuses to not go to school, and his sister Jennifer Grey hates him more than everything for that.One day, he, his best friend Cameron Frye Alan Ruck and Bueller's girlfriend Sloane Peterson Mia Sara decides to miss a day in school <more>
to walk away in New York. This makes the school's director,Ed Rooney, stay mad, and he wants to prove that Ferris is lying for his parents no matter what. Very cool and with a nice message of enjoy your life while you can!
