* One Man's Struggle To Take It Easy
* Leisure Rules
Everybody at some stage in their lives has cut classes in school to do extra curricular activities? Well "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" uses that theme to great effect. Many teen films were released during 1986 but Ferris was definitely a standout from the pack. A film that is still favorably watched today, it has become a classic film of youth. To some, Mathew Broderick's character has emerged as a likeable hero.

The story is simple, but effective. 17-year-old Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) pretends to be ill in order to get a day off school. His parents decide to let him stay home provided he remains in bed, but Ferris has other ideas. He talks his best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck) into taking his father's Red Ferrari for a spin around town & he also uses foul means to successfully pull his girlfriend (Mia Sara) out of school. The three of them spend their "day off" running wild through the streets of Chicago. Hot on Ferris' trail is the high school principal Ed Rooney (played hilariously over-the-top by Jeffrey Jones) who is not about to let Ferris get away with his truancy.

Look out for Charlie Sheen in a cameo appearance as the druggie in the police station. Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing) also makes brief appearances as Ferris' sister.  Make sure you stay to the very end of the film's credits to see Broderick return briefly & tell viewers to “go home the film has finished”.

Director John Hughes manages to keep the film fast-paced & full of laughs. The film features many memorable moments, one of the best would have to be when Ferris, standing on top of a float in a passing street parade, delivers a fun version of "The Beatles" classic "Twist & Shout". For many “Ferris Bueller's Day Off” is the ultimate 80's teen classic, a fun film that can be enjoyed time & time again.

Ferris is now available on Blu-ray & DVD - See Below:
