Like a soda pop left open all night, Bueller seems to have lost its effervescence over time. Sure, Matthew Broderick is still appealing as the perennial truant, Ferris, who fakes his parents out and takes one memorable day off from school. Jeffrey Jones is nasty and scheming as the principal who's out to catch him. Jennifer Grey is winning as Ferris's sister (who ends up making out in the police station with a prophetic vision of Charlie Sheen). But there's a definite sense that this film was of a particular time frame: the '80s. It's still fun, though. There's Ferris singing "Twist and Shout" during a Chicago parade, and a lovely sequence in the Art Institute. But don't get it and expect your kids to love it the way you did. Like it or not, it's yours alone. --Keith Simanton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Three high school comrades Ferris Bueller (Mattew Brodrick), Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck), and Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) take the day off. They have several adventures which take them to many fun locations among which are a parade, restaurant, and just skirt being detected. Even though this is a teenage fantasy everyone can enjoy it.
Ben Stein gives the performance of his life as the enthusiastic economics teacher. "Anybody...anybody?"
Meanwhile the principal Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), which knows of Ferris' devious ways, investigates and is foiled at every turn.
Ferris' jealous sister Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) has a few adventures of her own which include meeting a boy in the police station (Charlie Sheen.) She eventually comes to appreciate Ferris' ways.
Naive parents Katie (Cindy Pickett) and Tom (Lyman Ward) move blissfully through the movie only wanting what is best for their under the weather son.
For those musically inclined the movie is packed with great tunes.

In this 1986 John Hughes-directed film, Matthew Broderick plays to perfection Ferris Bueller, an incredibly popular high school senior. With his final year of high school winding down, Ferris decides to take a day off, faking illness with ease. What ensues is the ideal day off for any teenager. Ferris, along with his girl friend and pal Cameron, makes sure that his day off--his 10th absence of the marking period--is worth it. The film has a timeless quality: I just recently purchased this DVD and the movie seems brand new.
Part of that may be due to Paramount's vibrant transfer of the film. Presented in its original widescreen ratio, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" looks great with very crisp images. Unfortunately, since this is Paramount, the only extra included is a track of audio commentary (a rarity on Paramount releases) from director John Hughes. A trailer certainly would have been nice, but the commentary at least is a treat. Short on extras but big on fun, the DVD release of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is recommended.
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 15 years already? This is a definite Cult Classic! Right up there with Animal House and Caddy Shack.*****
Films like Ferris Buller are not made any more, and thats what makes this movie so special. The film stars Matthew Broderick in his best role of his career, he is one of the most likable charecters in movie history. The 80's were filled with great "feel good" movies but Hughe's Buller remains the my favorite. Ferris Buller's day off is one of those films you remeber forever.
