#93 Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

I'd probably seen this movie a dozen or so times since high school but I never realized, until this viewing, that Ferris is kind of a jerk. He claimes he just wanted to Cameron an awesome day but I think the truth is he wanted to hang out with Sloan and he needed a driver. Still it's always fun watching this classic and Edie McClurg steals every scene she's in.

Favorite Quote: Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.
Favorite Scene: The parade
Trivia: John Hughes told Ben Stein, who had a degree in Economics, to present an actual Economics lecture in his scenes. Hence nothing Ben Stein says (aside from the roll call) is scripted.
Awards: Nominated for Golden Globe
Would Jessica Like This Movie? She loves it
Next Movie: Dangerous Liasons
