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
Edward Rooney approaches the girl at the pizza joint and recognizes the jacket Ferris has on all day, but Rooney has not seen Ferris that day so there is no way he would know what he is wearing. See more »
Cameron, what have you seen today?
Nothing - wha - what do you mean nothing good? We've seen everything good. We've seen the whole city! We went to a museum, we saw priceless works of art! We ate pancreas!

Mr. Rooney, having been chewed up by the dog, is walking down the street. A school bus driver lets him onto the bus, where the students are staring at him. Rooney notices one student has "SAVE FERRIS" written on his binder. 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!
