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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

This is one movie that is a great watch if you are feeling down and need a laugh. Matthew Broderick is excellent in this role. He does things that all of us wish we did in High school but probably were too afraid of getting caught by our parents. You are always rooting Ferris Bueller and hoping he doesn't get into trouble. The movie was one of my favourites when I was younger. So I am happy to have it in my collection.

This is a movie that you can watch alone or with the famly. You won't regret purchasing this movie.

You will watch this movie again and again. A great gift for anyone that loves older comedies.

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.

The above title says it all. After viewing "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", you may ask yourself "Hmm...just exactly how was a cool, righteous dude such as Ferris Bueller able to pull his antics off, and without getting caught in the process?" Such is a question which may come to mind, regardless of whether you're a teenager, or if you've left your teenage years long behind you.Ferris (Matthew Broderick) is one lucky kid who has it all: a pair of loving and understanding parents (played by Lyman Ward and Cindy Pickett), a beautiful and intelligent girlfriend named Sloane Peterson (played by Mia Sara), and, to top it all off, a bright and successful future ahead of him. But...something's missing...Although he's already missed nine days this school year, Ferris decides to undertake the most important "Senior Skip Day". In order to pull this feat off, Ferris enlists the help of his best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck), who's home sick in bed. Together, they both cook up a scheme to get Ferris's girlfriend out of a boring history class, with both Ferris's school principal (Jeffrey Jones) and his sister Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) under heavy suspicion - both of whom are determined to catch Ferris with his pants down. While all this is happening, many comical moments occur in the unfolding, including a hilarious classroom scene with Ben Stein (in an early role) as a drone economics teacher (whom I personally would have loved to have had as an instructor during my high school years!), plus various other classic scenes and dialogue worthy of many a viewing.The secondary "star" of "FBDO", is a 1961 Ferrari GT, which gets quite a workout during much of the movie (although this big red machine's fate is a bit too much to mention).Read more ›

This movie starts off with the promise of being very satisfying light entertainment. Broderick is undeniably appealing as Ferris, and there's fresh humor in his approach to life and to the viewing audience. However, as the movie proceeds, it becomes confused about what kind of movie it wants to be. Ferris seems to stop addressing the audience and the film shifts incongruously to his friend, who has reluctantly been persuaded to play hooky and ends up crashing his father's sports car. In a sudden shift of tone, the friend gives a monologue on his difficult relationship with his father - is this still a comedy? - and then sort of inexplicably decides "well, it'll be all right" anyway, without Ferris uttering a word, and without us finding out what happens when his dad gets home and finds his car trashed. Meanwhile, the character of the principal does his best to keep things juvenilely amusing. Ferris does have some fun in Chicago, climaxing with a parade in which everybody in the city seems to become excited by his lip-syncing to "Twist and Shout" as if they've never heard it before - an excellent recording to be sure, but credit the Beatles for that, not Ferris Bueller. In the end, we get the suggestion of a highly amusing comedy film that is flawed by its failure to carry through with its original tone.
