Ferris Bueller is a smart high-school student who knows all the angles. Today, he’s decided to take the day off school, and when Ferris takes the day off, so must his friends Cameron and Sloane. But will Ferris’s ingenious scheming finally trip him up? Dean of Students Ed Rooney, until now frustrated that he has never caught his pupil out, smells blood and plans to catch him in the act, and someone else much closer to home is also tired that Ferris always ‘gets away with it’ ...
Director John Hughes made a reputation for himself in the 1980s as a chronicler of teenage life, orchestrating his films as entertainments, with an underlying sympathy for the growing pains of adolescence. ‘Ferris Bueller’ is first and foremost a larger than life comedy, but it still retains Hughes’s compassion for the awkwardness of teenage years.
This 1986 film stars Matthew Broderick, Jeffery Jones, Mia Sara, Alan Ruck [who a few years later would find himself stuck on a bus, with a bomb and a Bullock (Sandra, to be precise)]. Also appearing are [a pre-Dirty Dancing] Jennifer Grey, and an atypical cameo from Charlie Sheen.
The film currently has a score of 7.9 out of 10 from over 197,600 votes on the Internet Movie Database.

Prince Charles Members save £2.50 on this screening. If you are not a member, maybe it’s time you considered it? At £10 per year, it’s possibly the best value cinema membership in the capital (with a saving of at least £2.50 per movie). The cinema shows a mixture of recent releases and an extensive monthly programme of cult and classic movies. It’s more than likely that there will be a few more Movie Group events at this cinema before the year is out. For more membership details click (here)
(and, no, I'm not on commission, nor do I work for the cinema or know anyone who does :-] )
We will be going for a drink before the movie to discuss, among other things, our favourite all time teen movies.
I will send an e-mail around to all those who have RSVPed shortly before the event with meeting details.
