Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a 1986 John Hughes film that made a day of playing hooky into a blockbuster movie. Matthew Broderick leads a cast of actors that look much skinnier than they are today, because this movie was made 37 years ago. The film plays like a comedy of errors, but Ferris himself manages to run between the raindrops and avoid getting wet, while he has a blast in Chicago with his best friend and girlfriend. All these years later, fans still can't agree whether Ferris is the hero or the villain in the story, although most would have loved to have been in his shoes. Screen Junkies went back in time to remind us what Ferris Bueller's Day Off was all about. Did they like it? It's hard to tell; it appears they just went with a description, since everyone has already seen the film and formed their own opinions.
