Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
If you really scratch beneath the surface, Ferris
Bueller isn't a very nice person. He's a high school student who'll seem to screw anyone over to get what he wants, including his best friend. However, Matthew Broderick makes the
character surprisingly loveable. Skipping school with his best pal & his girlfriend, the trio venture into Chicago for a day of high end truancy, including a fancy restaurant, a
museum of art, watching a baseball game and of course, gatecrashing a street parade party.
Because the film is so fun, it's easy to accept that
Ferris isn't a particularly nice person.
One of John Hughes' more iconic teen comedies of the
1980's and it's aged quite well, even though it's clearly a lesson in how to be irresponsible.
