Review:

Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is a high school wise-guy who wants a day off from school, and he has developed an incredibly sophisticated plan in order to do so. However, he must avoid school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), who is convinced he is playing hooky and is hell-bent on catching him.

With a fun story that everyone can relate to, this classic comedy is a pleasure from beginning to end. The cast work very well together, with Jones on his quest providing a great number of funny members, and the script is very amusing and highly quotable. We get the experience of the joy of the con, and the message to live life to its fullest, all wrapped up in a bundle of entertainment. Never has a teen movie been presented so charmingly, and it has deservedly stood the test of time.
