Extras include a half dozen enjoyable little featurettes, which include both content filmed back in the 1980s and retrospective material from much more recently.

The picture quality is a step up, but Paramount's production team clearly took the day off when it came time to bring Ferris Bueller to Blu-Ray.

Unlike legwarmers and co., Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) is one icon that actually holds up a couple of decades down the line.

Matthew Broderick is strikingly absent from this new edition of his defining movie.

Remains a near-peerless portrait of the emboldening nature of burgeoning adolescent self-confidence.

Hughes' secret is simple: he clearly thinks of teens as adults who just don't have much experience yet. Polish is another strength. Even when there's not much happening or the comedy is uncomfortably broad, a Hughes film has the sheen of near-perfection.
