If you’ve seen “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” you remember every scene. If you’ve never seen it, you probably still know the quotes, the sets, the characters. This movie distilled everything ’80s into a tight, fun, stylish package with a little bit of heart, to boot. But Ferris might not be the clever charmer you thought he was. Memories are funny like that.

Plot Summary: “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, “borrows” a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago. On Ferris’ trail is high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch him in the act.
