Ferris Bueller's Day OffDirector: John Hughes, Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara
One of the perennial teenage films of the 1980s, Ferris Bueller's Day Off inspired dozens of films, made stars out of Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey, and Ben Stein, and even influenced a rock band (Save Ferris). Besides The Breakfast Club, John Hughes will undoubtedly be remembered for this classic piece of filmmaking. That's why the commentary with writer/director John Hughes on the disc makes it so appealing. Hughes is incredibly informative and insightful and gives away every casting secret anyone ever had about the making of the film. He's one of the more articulate directors to do commentary of a film. The downside to this disc, unfortunately, is that it is not a new film transfer. Sporadic dirt can be seen in the widescreen frames, though it's not too offensive and won't detract from viewing pleasure. The audio is excellent -- offered in Dolby Surround, 5.1 Surround, and French-language. There are also English subtitles for the hearing impaired. The most glaring omission on this disc is the lack of a theatrical trailer, which seems like a standard extra. Overall, however, the commentary more than makes up for any weaker aspects of the disc.

this is the best movie ever! that would be so killer if someone actually skipped school and had a day like that!
this is my favorite of all time. i've watched this a few dozen times & still love it. i actually knew a kid in highschool who used to change his grades by hacking into the schools pc's. makes you relive you highschool days atleast for a few hours.
This has been my favorite movie since I was 5!I saw my parents watching something downstairs. I went to see what it was. As I watched the movie, I grew bored. Then I went to loving it. I purchased this tape on my birthday at the age of 5 and a half. I watch it almost every night and when friends come over, they watch it too. I highly recomend this movie for people of the ages 5 and up. Note to the parents: they say a particular curse very often. Not a really bad one though.
From the first time I saw the movie I knew is was going to be aroud for a long time. If you never seen Farris Bueller's Day Off then it is a must see.
i think the movie was awsome, it was the cutest movie i've seen in a long time.
This movie is surely one of the funniest of the 1980s, a wonderful salute to those years just before we all have to become seriously responsible and grown up. Everybody has got to wish he has at least a little of the Ferris Bueller spirit in him. The scene with the idling car (I won't give it away) is absolutely unforgettable.
This is the best movie I have ever seen. I have seen it a total of 6 times and would love to see it again and agian. I recommend this movie to anyone ages 12 and up.
This is an excellent movie. It combines, action and comedy into one of the funniest movies I have seen. Broderick is a fantastic actor in the way he expresses his feelings. If you are a beatles fan like I am, you will live this movie!! P.S. To find out what i mean about beatles fans loving this movie, watch it!!!!!!!!
This is the best movie ever!!! and i mean it it is awesome. i recomend this movie to anyone who feels the need to watch a comedy. Ferris Beuller's day off!
ferris bueller is an excellent movie, and all of the young actors in it pull off fantastic comedic performances. this movie is wonderful and just a complete laugh. i loved it!!!
This is not the version you want if you want the loads of special features. You should try the other version and not the I love 80s version. Unless of course... you want the CD that comes with it. *shrugs* Up to you guys.
IF YOU PLAN ON SKIPPING SCHOOL MAKE SURE YOU DO IT THE FERRIS BUELLER WAY. THIS MOVIE IS CREATIVE AND FUN. I SAW IT FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR WHEN MY BEST FRIEND TOLD ME THAT AS A FRESHMAN IN HIGHSCHOOL I HAD BEEN DEPRIVED OF A FUNNY MOVIE SO I WENT TO MY VIDEO STORE AND RENTED IT. IT IS AMAZING. IT IS A MOVIE EVER ONE SHOULD SEE IN THEIR LIVES.
This is a good beginng movie for Young Matthew Brodrick, Funny ``
This a classic from the '80's. Really funny and creative performance by Matthew Broderick. Definitely worth watching.....you'll laugh!
If you haven't seen Ferris Beuller's Day off, but have seen all the new flicks coming out these days, your missing out. Ferris is the ultimate film, combining comedy and adventure with all the tips on how to skip school in the world. At least go hire it on video to see if you like it, which I assure you you will. It is the best 80's film of all time! WATCH IT! If you need any info about the movie, email me!
