03/16 (a): Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Sorry again for the lack of posting from yesterday, this has been a busy weekend for moi. So I'm gonna go ahead and review one of the 80s' greatest classics, as defined by most. This was arguably Matthew Broderick's defining film role. To some it was a fun movie, and its easy to compare with our own lives.

Bueller...Bueller...Bueller....uh, he's sick.....  Those words were etched in the heads of those who have seen the 1986 film as they relate well to it. Bueller pretty much fakes an illness while he goes on a day on the town (or city) of Chicago. Whether it be catching a ball at a Cubs game or going on top of the Sears Tower, or carefully watching the red car, he taught most of us that you are always welcome to have a day of fun while you're young. He even said it at the end.

Of course, to most, it is NOT recommended to pull off 'the perfect day' which includes a huge lie to skip school. As much as I'm not fond of Matthew Broderick's acting, I'd say he pulled it off pretty well. Even Jennifer Grey in her pre-Dirty Dancing performance. And as much as I can't stand the city of Chicago, it was John Hughes' intention to give his beloved home city a homage. That he did pretty well.

My rating: 7 out of 10
