Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

I am afraid I can not go into too much detail as the movie counts on surprise and anticipation.

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.

Want a gummy bear Mr. Rooney?

Out of the tons of high school comedies that have been released over the years, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" truly stands out. Its lasting quality and universal appeal make it a modern classic in a sense. This is just one of those great movies that you can watch any time and just have a blast watching it.
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.

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 furious principal in hot persuit. 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 15 years already? This is a definite Cult Classic! Right up there with Animal House and Caddy Shack.*****

John Huges is a kind of man child. They way he makes teen movies you would think he was one. In the 80's Huges invented the "teen" movie with films such as Breakfast Club, Sixteen candels, Pretty in pink and Wierd Science. Hughes is the most "Feel good" writer/directors of 80's and 90's he also wrote Vcation, Mr. Mom, The great Outdooors, Only the lonley and Home Alone. And when he was not making Teen movies he was directing films like She's having a baby, Uncle Buck, and Planes, Trains and automobiles. Huges has a love for the American family and it shows in all his films. The last so called teen film he made was 1986's Ferris Buller's day off, a film that touches my heart and still makes me laugh to this day. Its sad because teen movies now of days are filled with sex, drugs, and bad language.
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.

John Hughes is a man child. He writes movies about teenagers so well that you would think he was one. Films like Breakfast club, Wierd Science, Sixteen candles, Pretty in pink each deal with teen problems school, sex, and innocence. Hughes is a great writer his films just make you feel good. Just think he wrote Vacation, Mr Mom, The great outdoors, Only the lonley, beethoven, and Home Alone these are all feel good movies. When he wasent directing teen movies he also directed She's having a baby, Uncle Buck, Plains, trains and automobiles. These films are about suberban American lifestyle and they are all good movies. Now comes Ferris Buller's day off a film that touches me and still makes me laugh. Its every high school kids dream, cut school with ur best friend and girlfriend and hang out in the city. Movies like Ferris Buller are not made any more, teen films now are covered with sex and bad language now of days. Ferris Buller's day off had heart and that makes all the difference. The 80's were a great decade for feel good movies Goonies, Gremlins, Ghostbusters, E.T. and BIG. But Ferris buller stands out as my favorite. Matthew Broderick steals the show, he is one of the most likable charecters in movie history. Ferris buller is one of those movies youll remeber FOREVER.
