Sporadically hilarious, with roots that run far deeper than expected.

There are some great comic set pieces with a seize-the-day vibe for teens.

Ferris Bueller exhibits John Hughes on an off day. Paucity of invention here lays bare the total absence of plot or involving situations.
July 18, 2007
The overriding impression is one of utter nihilism, of a world divided into bored, crassly materialistic teenagers and doltish, unfeeling adults.

A comedy classic.

Not only captures what being a teenager and a high schooler felt like, but also embodies what life ought to be like.

Ferris is an admittedly entertaining, at times delightful fellow. How unfortunate that no one got to wring the little bastard's neck.

...removed from the moment, the high capitalism of the mid-1980s, the movie seems mild and pleasantly whimsical.

A next generation Eddie Haskell, Ferris Bueller redefined "cool" misbehavior for Generation X....Hughes has a knack for memorable set pieces. [new DVD review]

In this film [Hughes] has created a character who is every teen-ager's fantasy, but in the process he has lost some of the authenticity of his other films.

Time has caught up with the movie's once-iconic status, and it now seems more an artifact of its era than the 'with it' movie it once was.

This is John Hughes' best teen film, and it's a call to arms to everyone in the world who doesn't want to follow society's lame-ass rules at the expense of living a cool life.
