After high school slacker Ferris Bueller successfully fakes an illness in order to skip school for the day, he goes on a series of adventures throughout Chicago with his girlfriend Sloane and best friend Cameron, all the while trying to outwit his wily school principal and fed-up sister.
Plenty to Like, Plenty to Dislike
Highly Overrated But Still Good
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
There are no errors in this movie. Sheer perfection.
This movie is consistently funny and entertaining. The characters are interesting and well acted. If you're looking for a fun time, then go watch this movie. This is a classic that holds up. Everything about this movie is absolutely fantastic and I'm struggling to come up with any criticisms for it. I highly recommend this movie. If you haven't seen it already, then go watch it asap.
I don't know why this is my favorite movie but it is. Yes, I mean favorite movie of all time. What does this movie do that others don't? Not much. But it gives you that warm-fuzzy feeling John Hughes movies usually do. The dialogue is witty and funny and Ferris's view of life is uplifting. This movie has so many quotes and is incredibly charming. I'll end this quick review with some words from Bueller himself. "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
I watched this one again a few days ago. I was going to say that it hadn't aged well. But on reflection, I realized the sad fact that it is me who hasn't aged well. Teenage movies can be funny, or poignant, or dramatic, but one thing they can't be for me anymore is relevant. I recall thinking that this film was awesome back in the day. Now, it is amusing, but that's really all. Maybe a younger person can deliver a better comment.
