Member Picks: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
John Hughes’ classic has Matthew Broderick as a popular student who skips school in a ‘borrowed’ Ferrari.
Dir John Hughes
With Matthew Broderick, Mia Sara, Alan Ruck
John Hughes’ 1980s comedy proved to a generation that good-looking, popular, rich guys can get away with anything, and make it look fun in the process. Ferris Bueller (Broderick) decides to skip school by pretending to be ill and sets out with his two friends in a ‘borrowed’ Ferrari, with an angry head teacher on his trail.
