Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
After the angst-ridden The Breakfast Club, John Hughes zapped out this joyous celebration of skiving-off. On paper, Ferris is a selfish shit-heel; it’s Matthew Broderick’s cocky charisma that makes him so irresistible. One of the 1980s’ key comedies, incredibly it was written in a week. Hence the infectious, frisky energy. Moves pretty fast. Don’t miss it.
