Ferris Bueller's Day Off
It’s a fantastic spring day, and their final school year is almost over. That’s all the reason Ferris Bueller needs to declare an unofficial day off from classes. Concocting a brilliant plan that has everyone but his sister and the high school principal fooled, Bueller and company head off for a day of outrageous fun in Chicago. With John Hughes in the director’s chair, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is '80s comedy at its very best.
The actors who played Bueller’s parents, Cindy Pickett and Lyman Ward, got married in real life after filming the movie.
Director John Hughes wrote the script for the movie in just six days.
The Ferrari in the movie wasn’t real. Since the car would have been too expensive to rent, three fiberglass fakes were made and used instead.
Except for the roll call, nothing Ben Stein says in his scenes was scripted. He has a degree in Economics, so he simply presented a real Economics lecture.
Alan Ruck was already 29 years old when he played the role of Cameron in this film.

Meet the Cast
Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick)
When it comes to playing hooky, Ferris knows all the tricks. For this outing though, he’s pulling out all the stops and taking his best friends along for one wild ride.
Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck)
Bueller’s long-time buddy, pessimistic Cameron is up for a day of fun with his pal. But sneaking off with his dad’s prized Ferrari may mean he’s heading for disaster.
Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara)
Bueller’s girlfriend goes along with the plan for one last big fling in Chicago before the trio splits up and heads off to college.
Principal Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones)
Rooney has had it up to here with Bueller’s antics. And this time, the frazzled principal is determined to catch the delinquent in the act.
High school student Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) wants a day off from school and he's developed an incredibly sophisticated plan to pull it off. He talks his friend Cameron (Alan Ruck) into taking his father's prized Ferrari and, with his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara), they 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. This '80s movie is filled with bonus DVD materials that will give you an insider's view of this hilarious comedy directed by John Hughes.
Ferris and his adventures represent a teen's dream of glory: to have, at one's fingertips, the technical skills to sabotage the adult world's machinery of oppression and, at the tip of one's tongue, the perfect squelch for grownups' moralistic blather. --Richard Schickel, Time
When people think fondly of John Hughes, it's movies like Ferris Bueller that they're thinking of --Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
This is John Hughes' best teen film, and it's a call to arms to everyone in the world who doesn't want to follow society's lame-ass rules at the expense of living a cool life. --Brad Laidman, Film Threat

It was quick and easy to get. We signed up for it and the movie was ready to be view instantly. We had a clear picture and sound. We were also able to pause the movie while everyone took a bathroom break and while I popped some popcorn for everyone.
Although the movie was first released in 1986, a lot of it was timeless. Both my husband and the grandkids recognized many of the actors from other movies they have seen. It was a fun bonding time for everyone. And, the kids enjoyed seeing a movie their parents watched when they were young.
Although I am a product tester/reviewer and am fortunate to receive many products at a discount (or sometimes free) in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED opinion, this was a product purchase that I made at the same full price anyone could have purchased it. Either way, it doesn't make any difference because I ALWAYS pretest every product prior to writing a review. I am free to write whatever I believe to be true, whether negative or positive. This is my true story and my honest opinion.
The world our whole life was in front of us. Then we grow up and forget tne fun we had doing crazy things with friends. Why shouldn't we all be doing things and having fun.???
I found this and me and my twin boys 12 watched it and they tried to guess what was next. They will be in a store and hollar BUELLER ..BUELLER .. while I'm on tne other side of tne store and we hear each other bust out laughing and it is great when we hear others start laughing also.
Great movie highly recommended
Also, the shooting script for this movie contains MANY deleted scenes and dialogue, some of which were a GREAT read and are bound to have been filmed. Ferris going through the house looking for money in some STRANGE places (all while the Pink Floyd tune "Money" was playing), as well as Cameron's dad seeing his 1961 Ferarri being driven through Chicago's streets by the two parking garage employees would have been GREAT to see. However, the ONLY deleted scene we get here is a behind-the-scenes version of the waiter at Chez Qui telling the trio that the food they were eating was pancreas (which of course was referred to later by Ferris in the taxi). No true special edition DVD should be without a deleted scenes section. VERY disappointing.
Next, this edition (like the original) does NOT include a theatrical trailer. It's rare for even a bare bones DVD not to include at least one trailer, but nearly UNHEARD of for a special edition! It's bound to still exist, and I can't beleive that it's THAT
The reunion clips were excellent. The sound track was excellent... as anyone familiar with
the film knows.
I might add that the price was also a factor in my decision for an upgrade to the HD-version.
What a CLASSIC! Worth a watch.... every spring... when the fever gets ya!
