‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Was 30 Years Ago [VIDEO]
Ok, now I feel really old. Hard to believe 30 years ago this past weekend, the movie 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' first hit the big screen.
It was one of those that you could go to see multiple times and see something new each time you go. Ferris, played by Matthew Broderick, pulls off the ultimate day of hookey that most kids only dreamed of pulling off. It was an elaborate scheme to fool his parents and school officials, which involved fake symptoms of illness, state of the art electronic sound effects, and a mannequin equipped to move when his bedroom door is opened.
Ferris, along with his friends Cameron (Alan Ruck), and Sloane (Mia Sara) skip school and venture in to Chicago for a day of fun and frolic, all while Principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) is hell-bent on catching Ferris in the act.
It was directed by the late John Hughes and it hit theaters back in 1986. One line that continues to used by all ages today is the ever classic 'Bueller...Bueller...Bueller'.
Check out the scene that put the Beatles' 'Twist and Shout' back on the charts more than 20 years later.
