Classic Movie Trailer: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)


Flick Nation Presents … a selection of curated classic movie trailers.

And when we say “classic,” that doesn’t mean the movie was necessarily good, but has endured the test of time. Sure, maybe it’s one of the greatest flicks ever … or maybe it’s a movie that’s so awesome that it should have endured. Either way, consider the next two minutes of your life as homework for your streaming queue.

Bueller … Bueller …

It’s the 30-year anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the classic 1986 American comedy film written, produced and directed by John Hughes.

Yes, 30 years. And would you believe that despite a fantastic playlist of iconic songs, Ferris Bueller never had an official soundtrack … until now.

The film follows high school senior Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick), who skips school and spends the day in downtown Chicago along with his girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) and best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck). He creatively avoids his school’s dean of students Edward Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), his resentful sister Jeannie (Jennifer Grey), and his parents. During the film, Bueller regularly breaks the fourth wall by speaking directly to the camera to explain to the audience his thoughts and techniques.

Seriously, don’t even tell us you’ve never seen it!
