  1. One of the least appealing movies I've seen in a while.... When a member of the audience belched loudly, that got the biggest laugh of the day. [17 June 1986, p.26(E)]

    John Hughes made many great, intelligent, and wickedly witty films throughout the 80's. Bueller is one of his best, and its also one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Full Review »

    It's funny how some of those 'professional' critics simply didn't get the point of the film, and thought it was a crass movie with no moral or message in the story. Full Review »

    Ferris Bueller is Broderick's best role next to Election. The movie is flat out hilarious with clever acting from
    every actor. Ferris is as
    funny as The Breakfast Club and the movie is an 80's comedy classic. Ferris is one of the funniest movies from director John Hughes. Full Review »
