Ferris Bueller's Day Off

John Hughes' coming-of-age comedy follow-up to The Breakfast Club. Smooth high-schooler Ferris (Mathew Broderick) knows everyone and every trick to faking an illness. With the entire school convinced he's at death's door, he grabs his girlfriend and best friend and hits the streets of Chicago for a well-deserved day off. Meanwhile, his fired-up principal is determined to outfox Ferris and put a premature end the "field trip". The movie, famously written by Hughes in less than seven days, was 1986's highest-grossing movie in the States.

John Hughes on an off day. Paucity of invention here lays bare the total absence of plot or involving situations.

In this film [Hughes] has created a character who is every teen-ager's fantasy, but in the process he has lost some of the authenticity of his other films.

The film's heart is in the right place, and Ferris Bueller is slight, whimsical and sweet.

Sporadically hilarious, with roots that run far deeper than expected.
