Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Where was this movie all my life ?!?
Such an incredibly beautiful movie. And I heard about it only on the recent Oscar award telecast where they paid a visual tribute to John Hughes who passed away last year.
I can't believe this movie is not celebrated as the best of best to come out of Hollywood. Sadly it is only listed in Best Comedies.
This movie is wise beyond any youth-oriented movie I have known or seen.
I have the 'Bueller, Bueller' Edition - that too at half-price clearance sale. So beautiful I could cry at this beautiful comedy (of life ? )
The direction and narration for a film from 1986 is so fresh and clever and well-done.
This is a movie which has the ever-lasting quality because it speaks about what will forever be a "human condition".
And the performances are great. Perfect background score and music that fits the situations as if the songs were written for it.
I don't know why I never came across this movie. And yet today there it was sitting alone in a stack of discounted VCDs and I couldn't believe my luck. And that changed to a fortune when I had finished watching the movie.
I hope all the people in the world can see this and see beyond the jokes into what Ferris Bueller is teaching to these few who worship him - and rightly so!
As I sort through all the John Hughes movies on his profile, I see I was previously impressed by "Baby's Day Out" and had never bothered to look through this director's works.
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is a masterpiece. If you thought you deal with life as a struggle - well wake up cause it shouldn't be a fight - dance to it and let it take you where you wanna go.
"I think when John Hughes wrote, produced and directed Ferris Bueller's Day Off, he was writing about a human need as basic as the human need that Jefferson wrote about in the Declaration of Independence: the need to be free, and to pursue happiness. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – very basic stuff. And I don't know that there’s ever been a happier movie. It's a movie that you cannot watch without feeling really, really great." —Ben Stein
