Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
Director/Writer- John Hughes
Starring: Matthew Broderick, Jeffery Jones, with cameos by Charlie Sheen, and Ben Stein
About a young man still in high school who decided it was too nice that day to go to school. He decides he needs have at least one last great skip day with his friends. However, the principal (Jones) is out to bring down this “menace” whom everyone else in the world seems to love (with a few key exceptions).
This is one of the very best movies from the 1980’s and little to no surprise it was created by the legendary John Hughes. Arguably the perfect teenage comedy which explores the thoughts and feelings of teenagers about high school in a really perceptive manner. The cameos are brilliant and the jokes still hilarious today. This is the movie that essentially made Broderick’s career a thing.
One of my favorites of all time that is just as relevant today as it was in 1986 (perhaps even more relevant in some cases). A feel good movie with tons of great lines, and a variety of jokes that almost anyone with a sense of humor will enjoy.
