High school student Ferris Bueller wants a day off from school and he's developed an incredibly sophisticated plan to pull it off. He talks his friend Cameron into taking his father's prized Ferrari and with his girlfriend Sloane head into Chicago for the day. While they are taking in what the city has to offer school principal Ed Rooney is convinced that Ferris is, not for the first time, playing hooky for the day and is hell bent to catch him out. Ferris has anticipated that, much to Rooney's chagrin.Written by
According to Alan Ruck, the role of Cameron had originally been offered to Emilio Estevez, who turned it down. "Every time I see Emilio, I want to kiss him," said Ruck. "Thank you!" See more »
When Mr. and Mrs. Bueller come home at the end of the day, they find tons of flower arrangements for Ferris in the doorway. But no one was home all day to receive them, except (very briefly) Jeannie. Indeed, Mrs. Bueller was home at lunch tine and there were no flowers then. See more »
Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off people.

A line in the theatrical version is "The man could squash my nuts into oblivion." The TV version replaces "nuts" with a *very* badly-overdubbed "brains." See more »
First off, I want to say that I like this movie. It's a genuinely funny movie. Often you find yourself still laughing at the last joke, when the next Punchline is delivered. I especially took a liking to the socially awkward Cameron who really makes this movie worth while with his constant negative thinking. I love the jealous sister who really wants to be more like Ferris but just does not feel like she could and I adored Charlie Sheen but still..
The movie is filled with situation that are just not really believable. Not considering some obvious but - hopefully - intended illogical situations like Ferris on the parade truck myself wondering whether or not those kids are just plain stupid. (Like sneaking behind Ferris father to catch a cab - they could just take the next one!)
The plot is completely predictable but that's part of the fun and for the most part is really was fun but those ten minutes that weren't just kinda spoiled the mood.
