Teenaged Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is a legend in his own time thanks to his uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last grand duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, "borrows" a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day bacchanal through the streets of Chicago. Dogging Ferris' trail at every turn is high-school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch Bueller in the act of class-cutting. Writer/director John Hughes once again tries to wed satire, slapstick, and social commentary, as Ferris Bueller's Day Off starts like a house afire and goes on to make "serious" points about status-seeking and casual parental cruelties. It brightens up considerably in the last few moments, when Ferris' tattletale sister (Jennifer Grey) decides to align herself with her merry prankster sibling. A huge moneymaker, Ferris Bueller's Day Off eventually spawned a TV sitcom.~Hal Erickson
I love this movie!! I remember when this first came out,I couldn’t wait to see it. The humor in this movie is so cool. I wanted to be Ferris,this movie will keep you entertained and you won’t want it too end. A must have for all pop culture fans.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a classic from the West Coast mentality just as much as Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Every one who lived thru the 80's either saw it and came out smiling or should see it.
It's must see for Baby Boomers!

This is such a great ole classic 80’s film! EVERYONE wanted to be “Ferris” for a day. Matthew Brodrick in the role of Ferris Bueller, fleshed out with his girlfriend Sloan (Mia Sara) playing the sweet, sensitive, and trusting love interest, his best friend Cameron ( played with such great hilarity and sensitive doofiness (Alan Ruck), his peeved Principle, Mr. Ed Rooney’s ( Jeffery Jones) need to prove how tough he can be and falling seriously short, along with Ferris’s sister Jean “Shauna” Bueller, ( Jennifer Grey before her nose job) who aside from getting a car for her birthday, cannot seem to catch the breaks her brother Ferris does when getting away with his outrageous antics. All the way to LITERALLY the very end of the film.. t h r o u g h the credits even…, we watch poor Mr Rooney on most likely the worst day of his life, inching his way back to his high school…, encountering irritating barriers along the way. Until Ferris shows back up to tell you .. GO HOME! It’s over! It’s done. Lololol. With such disdain and shock that you would still be there in your seat, staring at the screen into his home, his life. A great watch! Lots of fun watching Matthew and Alan play these roles!
Beautiful steelbook on this movie! I love it all the way through. Now, at least we get some artwork that is pretty nice, even on the actual disc instead of the bland gray or blue shade.
It has a nice glossy finish to it also, rather than the matte type.
Looking forward to the others from 1986, "Some Kind of Wonderful" and "Pretty In Pink" from John Hughes.
The movie looks and sounds great. It is one of the '80s classics for certain and Matthew did a great job.
It does include a Digital copy.
Pictures of it are on the listing here on Ebay. Well done!
I used to laugh every time I watched this movie growing up. One of my ultimate favorite movie classics. Now to own it on SteelBook has made this DVD collector a very happy camper. Highly recommend the SteelBook to any collector.
This is in my top list of all time. Def. my favorite film from the 80's, right in front of the Goonies. I would have loved a 4K upgrade, would still gladly buy one in the future. I bought this because of my love for this movie, and the fact that in came in a beautiful steelbook.
