Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)


A high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite what the principal thinks of that. (IMDb)
Between Ferris’ charming 4th-wall breaks (right down to his sly one-second looks), his outrageously serendipitous class-cutting escapades (makes himself the star of the downtown parade) and delightful deceits (his bedside baby talk to his parents is a riot), and a hilarious slapstick side plot with the crazy principal, there’s ample humour here, set to fresh, quirky and quick-cutting scenes. Ruck’s sympathetic Cameron, meanwhile, adds some touching character development to the great comedy.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
