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
When Sloane is speaking with Mr. Rooney outside the school, you can see a very blue sky with puffy clouds reflected in the doors. When the sky is shown in other shots in the same scene the sky is a much lighter blue and the clouds are flat and much thinner. See more »
Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.
Thank you, Simone.
No problem whatsoever.

Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is a legend in his own time thanks to his uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Ferris intending to make one last skip day out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, "borrows" his friend Cameron's (Alan Ruck) father's Ferrari, and goes on a one day adventure through the streets of Chicago with his pals. Ferris' is followed by his high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch Bueller in the act of cutting class, but finds it is more trouble than he bargained for. Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of the best comedies ever, John Hughes is the best.
