A very good movie, and my favorite movie of all-time. Not only does FBDO do a fantastic job at capturing '80s nostalgia, but allows us to live vicariously through Ferris Bueller with his optimistic outlook on life. Even though Ferris Bueller commits truancy and frequently breaks the fourth wall, he cares deeply about his best friend Cameron, and helps him gain self-respect. FBDO also has genuinely hilarious moments - such as the scene where Cameron impersonates Sloane's dad in order to get Sloane out of school, and the scene where Mr. Rooney receives his comeuppance by a Rottweiler as he attempts to intrude the Bueller household.

Overall, the film is a fun comedy, that I would happily watch again. I would rate the film a 7.5/10

It's a righteous movie (mostly if you are from the 80s)

Even though it looks like a high school romance comedy, the funny performance of Matthew Broderick, and a strange performance by Alan Ruck as Cameron, still manages to be funny to this day.

I know I am going to get a lot of hate for giving a half a star but hear my out. This movie is incredibly over rated. If you have seen clips of this movie anywhere, heard someone talk about it, or even just know the basic plot you don't even need to see the movie. I also don't understand why people keep saying that this is the movie everyone needs to see. I would say instead of watching this movie watch The Breakfast Club, Stand By Me, or even 10 Things I Hate About You instead of this movie. This movie is so overrated compared to movie a hundred times better then it.

Ferris Buellers day off is a masterpiece, it?s incredibly entertaining and fun, this is one of the best movies ever made. Everything in this movie was perfect. Even Matthew Broderick in this movie was flawless. The whole movie is flawless.

A quirky and oddball comedy set in an iconic time and setting - the 80's. Entertaining and amusing with great performances and style, but doesn't really have a story and has become quite dated.

One of the best movies ever, and perhaps THE best movie that breaks 4th wall.

Don't really get the cult following this has generated. A boy giving a running commentary of his day playing truant with his friends. It's not particularly funny or gripping - it simply feels like we are playing big brother, and watching his every moment of a unique, but not too shocking adventure. Am I missing something?

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a fun little comedy. I'm not as big a fan of Matthew Broderick as an actor but overall this has got to be one of his good performances.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is my favorite comedy of all time. It is so relatable. Ferris Bueller reminds me off all the times that I would fake being sick to get off school and do something. The script is fantastic and there are so many iconic scenes that you will never forget. Matthew Brodrick is the perfect Ferris Bueller and takes the character to a new level. This film is an absolute blast to be had. This is a must see coming of age comedy!

A quintessential 80's comedy, iconic and delightfully charming. Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller is terrific and is impossible to dislike. His supporting cast including Mia Sara as his girlfriend, Alan Ruck as his best friend and Jennifer Grey as his sister who doesn't like all the preferential treatment Ferris gets shine. Jeffrey Jones almost steals the whole film as the nightmare principal we all remember who is out to get Ferris at any cost. John Hughes as usual shows the uncanny ability to give you laughs but also make you really care about these characters. You feel like your on this road trip with Ferris as he and his girlfriend and best friend have the time of there life in Chicago. This is John Hughes best work along with The Breakfast Club and it provides just the right amount of laughs, charm and pure fun that even with some of the usual cliches, it's impossible not to love and want to take a day off yourself.

Irritating self-important smarmy little turd bunks off school for a day, makes life hell for all around him especially his anally retentive head teacher who in just trying to do his job gets subjected to all manner of physical emotional and mental abuse, even from his secretary.

Great cast, but the 80's-ness and actually quite mean-spirited feel of the film hasn't held up well at all. I wanted to punch Bueller's lights out after 10 minutes.
August 11, 2017
A classic that should entertain future generations looking back at a bygone era.
