Not really a Brat Pack movie for me but it was requested so much by visitors to the site that I decided to give the film it’s very own page.
Matthew Broderick of ‘I’m married to Carrie from Sex and the City’ fame plays Ferris, a cheeky and very like-able high school senior who decides to take his ninth sick day of the year.
Ferris spends the day in Chicago after he convinces his best friend Cameron to take his Dad’s precious Ferrari out for a spin. The pair take Ferris’ girlfriend Sloane along for the ride.
Even though there is nothing wrong with Ferris, rumours go around the school that he is at death’s door which sparks the campaign to ‘Save Ferris’.
Dean of student’s Ed Rooney knows all about Ferris but can never catch him in the act.
Ferris’ sister Jeanie also knows Ferris’ game and is fed up of him being an angel in his parent’s eyes.
Ferris Bueller Rating
Mainly comedy based but also an amazing tale of a kid with a lot of luck, charm and some good sense. Deserves no less than a Brat Pack rating of 10/10.
