Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

Directed by John Hughes

Starring Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jeffrey Jones


Funny film about a cool guy. Made in a really fun and interesting way. The story was fun and well-presented, and the characters were fabulous. Well-developed and very real. The principal’s performance was brilliant comedy, the best character in the movie. One of the most enjoyable endings I’ve seen for a film.

An interesting aside in an art museum, much like in European Vacation. There were definitely deeper messages in this movie, about both the education system and broken families. Cameron looked a lot like the kid in Kids.
