U.S., 1986, 103 min, 2K DCP, Dir. John Hughes, Rated PG-13, Paramount Pictures
“One of my favorite movies of all time. It has one of the highest 'repeatability' factors of any film I've ever seen ... I can watch it again and again.” – Richard Roeper
Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is the king of high school slacking and cutting class and today is no different. This time, he enlists best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck) and girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) in playing hooky and taking the Windy City by storm. Written and directed by John Hughes as a love letter to Chicago (“I really wanted to capture as much of Chicago as I could. Not just in the architecture and landscape, but the spirit,” he said), Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is one of the great teen comedies, a genre that plays on the woes, concerns, and ennui of a generation. Replete with quotable lines, a kick-ass soundtrack, and (mostly) likeable characters, it’s no wonder the film became an instant critical and commercial success, prompting even Barbara Bush to quote the film at a commencement ceremony: “Life moves pretty fast; if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
