High school student Ferris Bueller wants a day off from school and he's developed an incredibly sophisticated plan to pull it off. He talks his friend Cameron into taking his father's prized Ferrari and with his girlfriend Sloane head into Chicago for the day. While they are taking in what the city has to offer school principal Ed Rooney is convinced that Ferris is, not for the first time, playing hooky for the day and is hell bent to catch him out. Ferris has anticipated that, much to Rooney's chagrin.Written by
When Grace says "He's a righteous dude", it was not in the original script. Edie McClurg ad-libbed it in her best Chicago accent. See more »
When Sloane is speaking with Mr. Rooney outside the school, you can see a very blue sky with puffy clouds reflected in the doors. When the sky is shown in other shots in the same scene the sky is a much lighter blue and the clouds are flat and much thinner. See more »

Who is it?
Oh, I'm sorry. I can't come to the door right now. I'm afraid that in my weakened condition, I could take a nasty spill down the stairs and subject myself to further school absences. You can reach my parents at their places of business. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your concern for my well-being. Have a nice day!

Polly Noonan ('Girl On Bus' with the the Gummi Bears) has her name appear in the closing credits of the movie BEFORE she appears in the movie. See more »
Original DVD release is largely devoid of bonus features, but does include a John Hughes commentary. The later "Bueller...Bueller Edition" adds in many more bonus features, but omits the earlier Hughes commentary. See more »
I have an ongoing discussion with my friends and family about what movie defines your generation, and for me, this is it! Ferris' commentary throughout the movie is hilarious and irreverent, giving a voice to those on the borderline between Generations X and Y. It's Office Space, the teenage years! This movie is witty and fast-paced, not relying on the bathroom humor and physical comedy that most teenage and college comedies do these days. Yes it is dated, but that's part of what makes it great. I love it!
