Genre: Comedy
Duration: 103 mins
Director: John Hughes
Screenplay: John Hughes
Stars: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara

The ultimate self-referential teen comedy about a carefree high school senior who pulls a sickie in order to take one last day off school before graduation. John Hughes and his cast hit all the right notes as Ferris (Matthew Broderick) and his friends (Alan Ruck and Mia Sara) throw caution to the wind and have a wild day out on the town all to the chagrin of their school principal (Jeffrey Jones) and Ferris’ toxic sister (the hysterically funny Jennifer Grey) who’re determined to expose him as the fraud they know he is. The jokes are side-splitting, the performances are perfect (with Broderick’s in particular being insightfully impish), and in the midst of all the shenanigans there are some genuinely touching scenes, the best of which being the beautifully crafted museum sequence. Another triumph in the career of the great John Hughes.
