Fer­ris Bueller’s Day Off

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

This teen com­edy is one of di­rec­tor John Hughes’ best movies from his ‘Brat Pack’ pe­riod, which saw such clas­sics as The Break­fast Club, Weird Science, and

Pretty in Pink. This of­fer­ing si­mul­ta­ne­ously man­ages to ap­plaud teen re­bel­lion and satirise it. Matthew Brod­er­ick has never been bet­ter cast than as the ev­er­in­ven­tive high-school loafer who en­gi­neers a day of tru­ancy with the pre­ci­sion of a mil­i­tary op­er­a­tion. Fu­ture Dirty Danc­ing star Jen­nifer Grey also makes a big im­pres­sion as the seething bun­dle of envy that is his kid sis­ter. 1986, 12, 103MIN

MATTHEW WOULD MAKE THIS SCHOOL DAY THE HAP­PI­EST OF HIS LIFE TEEN COMEDY
