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
The restaurant where Ferris and company go to eat is the same one Jake and Elwood terrorized in The Blues Brothers (1980). It is also the same restaurant from St. Elmo's Fire (1985), where Kirby waits for Dale. See more »

We can't come to the phone right now. We've had a... death in the family.
Grace, Ferris Bueller is behind this. There is no doubt in my mind, and now, he's got Sloane Peterson involved in this thing.
Her grandmother, too.

In the theatrical version, Ferris says "Cameron's so tight, that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in 2 weeks it would turn into a diamond." In the TV version, he says "Cameron's so tight, that if you stuck a lump of coal in his fist, in 2 weeks it would turn into a diamond." See more »

When teen movies were funny, not just stupid
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!
