Ferris Bueller's Day Off

In honor of the sudden passing of director John Hughes (RIP), I've decided to review one of his best-known works: Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Matthew Broderick plays the title character of Ferris Bueller, a teenager who decides to skip school one day by faking a disease. The only people that don't believe him are his sister Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) and his school's principal Mr. Rooney (Jeffrey Jones). Ferris convinces his friend Cameron (Alan Ruck) and girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) for a day on the town in Chicago. He also convinces Cameron to use Cameron's dad's Ferrari. Mr. Rooney goes on a wild goose chase to find Ferris to prove that Ferris is faking his disease.

This movie is definitely one movie that everyone should see sometime in their lifetime. If you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out on the rest of the world.
My Rating: ****1/2
