VERY GOOD 1986 film written, co-produced and directed by John Hughes. Fine cast all around. I particularly enjoyed Jeffrey Jones as Edward R. Rooney, the school principal who is whackilly compelled to confront Ferris.

1995 TOP NOTCH teen- adult comedy. Poor Mr. Rooney, the principal. He keeps trying to outsmart Ferris but he can't. Great scene with Charlie Sheehan. DRUGS?

Perhaps one of the funniest films ever made; this is a true classic. The thing that amazed me about Ferris was his ability to dodge any obstacle that could come his way. That's what makes this movie so memorable and hysterical. Years after I first saw this in the theatre, I still find myself uttering the classic lines from 1986... "Bueller? Bueller?" Definite must see!!

Hilarious, Matthew Broderick's best movie next to War Games!

A really good, really funny movie about a high-schooler who fakes illness in order to skip school. The best part is anything with the principal. Not for kids but very worth a watch.

Horrible! This movie is over-rated. The whole movie is nothing more than a self-centered teenager manipulating his friends to go along with his every whim, all the while using as much foul language per minute as possible as if it’s supposed to make him somehow “cool” or “mature”. I didn’t like it when it was new and I was the age of the characters, and I still don’t like it.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off has that 80’s movie vibe and is definitely one of Hughes’ funniest films. This film is aimed towards the team to an adult audience. Those watching can relate to Ferris if they love skipping school, Cameron if they are indecisive as heck, Sloane if you are a clingy girlfriend or even Jeanie who reeks of jealousy an attitude. Looking at all aspects of the movie surely enough it has received eight stars out of ten. At some point, we could admit we have always wanted to be in Ferris’ shoes. “No school” will forever be a teenager’s favorite saying. Life is too short so we must make the most out of it. @grumpykat of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Ferris Bueller's Day Off: the movie that gave an entire generation of kids excuses to skip school. Honestly, I hold this movie at the standard of one of the funniest ever created, where Matthew Broderick's performance was just so stunning and spectacular, it really made me believe he was Ferris. This movie is so amazing to me for its writing and plotline: I mean, the sheer amount of quotable lines from Ferris Bueller's Day Off is immense! I would argue that this movie is entirely classic and historical. It really is a pure gem from the '80s that encourages you to go with the flow: "live a little." Sometimes I like to speculate that Ferris is almost the older, more sophisticated version of Kevin from Home Alone, in the sense that both of their plans are wildly difficult and convoluted. Even the stunts he pulled reflected on Ferris' sense of an aloof brilliance. Ferris Bueller's Day Off was a gift for the era it was released in and still continues to be a behemoth in the movie world. I highly recommend that you give the film a try, or even watch it again-and-again. It's simply too good of a movie to pass up. 5/5. @ShowMeTheMonet! of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a hilarious teen movie following the crazy antics of a high-school boy named Ferris, and his schemes to get out of school and go on adventures instead. Although it’s definitely not a good idea to skip school, the message of the movie is to stop taking things so seriously and to “live a little.” It encourages us to stop being afraid and to go on fabulous adventures with our friends, to go with the wind and find out where life takes us. It’s important for everyone to be carefree and just live life every once in awhile.

I watched it as a trip down memory lane and was satisfied. Speaks differently to a teenager and now a grown-up, does it relate to the current generation?

Such a fun and classic John Hughes film about a high school senior ditching school to enjoy life and not let it pass him by. It has a good moral of the story basis, maybe not ditching school but taking time to enjoy life before it is too late.

Ferris: "Would you like a kiss from daddy?"

It's not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Isms in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon: 'I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.' Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off of people.

"If anybody needs a day off, it's Cameron. He's got a lot of things to sort out before he graduates. He can't be wound up this tight and go to college. His roommate'll kill him. Pardon my French, but Cameron is so uptight, if you stuck a lump of coal up his a*s, in two weeks, you'd have a diamond."
