Ferris Bueller?s Day Off

In short: Ferris Bueller?s day off is the best comedy movie ever made. It was cleverly written and brilliantly acted. No one can refuse to go along with Ferris Bueller, especially when he talks to the audience throughout the movie. It may be a comedic movie but Ferris says some of the most thought provoking quotes that have ever been said in a movie:

1)?Life moves pretty fast. If you don?t stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it.?

2) ?You shouldn?t believe in an ?ism,? an ism in my opinion is not good. (Ism = racism, prejudism et cetera) You should only believe in yourself. I quote John Lennon ?I don?t believe in the Beatles, I just believe in me.? ?

The synopsis: Ferris Bueller (Mathew Broderick) is the kid everyone loved at high school. He is popular among his peers, has an attractive girlfriend, and gets away with everything and anything.

It is a beautiful sunny day in Chicago and he decides that it is too nice of a day to spend at school consequently he takes the day off (hence the title.) Ferris ingeniously cons his parents into thinking he is sick. Ferris believes that faking sick is? ?A little childish and stupid, but then so is high school.? To excuse his girlfriend from school he gets his friend makes a phony phone call to his principal so his girlfriend could be excused from school.

The journey begins. Ferris, his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara), and Cameron (best friend) do everything imaginable: steal Cameron?s father?s Ferrari, go to a baseball game, observe priceless works of art, sing in a parade, eat at an elite restaurant, and completely destroy the Ferrari.

While these events take place...
