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.
We all know Ferris... and this is why the movie is still so popular. I remember seeing this in the theaters.
Yup it was a trip down memory lane!

One of the best! Save Ferris for future viewers. The actors are all in top form, and the story is a real gem. Read morePublished 3 months ago by blackrock woman
One of my favorite movies of all time. Absolutely love it. Lost a star due to no audio commentary (at least, I couldn't find one if there is).Published 5 months ago by Jimmy Pantelis
