Everyone knows this film. Everyone loves this film. It is a classic and for all of the right reasons! 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' is one of the very best films from way back when especially because of how inspiring it is and was to so many young people to truly grasp and enjoy life. It follows Ferris and his friends as they bunk off school (this is not a spoiler, this is literally the title of the film) and all of their antics that day. Is it morally wrong to do so? Of course, it is, but it doesn't stop them from having potentially the best day of their lives. The best part of this film is that it is still so relevant today, over 30 years later. I also find that the film is full of incredible expressions, sayings and more, including "Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you'd have a diamond." I love this and I'm sure I will use and adapt this at some point in my life. The events of this day are extraordinary, and incredibly well put together. I don't know how well Ferris had planned this before the film's setting but if this calculated or a spur of the moment thing, it is perfect either way. We have some iconic film moments in this and I'm sure that it will be ruined one day and be remade like many other remakes. However, for now, we must sit back, relax and enjoy this masterpiece.
One thing that I always find incredible in this film is the chemistry between all of those acting in this, they are all so perfect together. I have no idea if that was the case in real life and I kind of don't want to know if it wasn't the case as it will ruin the film for me. For its time, it is perhaps years ahead in terms of the film's capabilities, and that even now, producers can't capture the same essence of companionship that is displayed in this. To be honest, it is so hard to say absolutely everything I love about the film without talking about specific scenes, but I just adore everything about this. To round this off, 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' is a timeless piece of art (some will get my reference there) and this should be treasured for the rest of eternity.
