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
Towards the beginning of the movie, Ferris dances to the theme song from I Dream of Jeannie (1965). The name of his sister in this movie is Jeanie. See more »

[Ferris has snuck aboard a parade float]
Ladies and gentlemen, you are such a wonderful crowd, we'd like to play a little tune for you. It's one of my personal favorites and I'd like to dedicate it to a young man who doesn't think he's seen anything good today - Cameron Frye, this one's for you.
Ferris! Get off of the float!

Ferris comes out of bathroom: "You're still here? It's over. Go home." See more »
Original DVD release is largely devoid of bonus features, but does include a John Hughes commentary. The later "Bueller...Bueller Edition" adds in many more bonus features, but omits the earlier Hughes commentary. See more »
I have an ongoing discussion with my friends and family about what movie defines your generation, and for me, this is it! Ferris' commentary throughout the movie is hilarious and irreverent, giving a voice to those on the borderline between Generations X and Y. It's Office Space, the teenage years! This movie is witty and fast-paced, not relying on the bathroom humor and physical comedy that most teenage and college comedies do these days. Yes it is dated, but that's part of what makes it great. I love it!
