When the film dropped in 1986, teens everywhere wished they could get away with the shenanigans Ferris manages to pull off.
Deciding to fake an illness so he can ditch school for a day, Bueller (Matthew Broderick) takes his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) and best pal Cameron (Alan Ruck) along for the ride, literally. Hopping into Cameron's father's coveted Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder, Ferris takes his partners in crime on a joy ride through Chicago. The trio visit city landmarks, such as Sears Tower and the Art Institute of Chicago, but one of the classic scenes in the film occurs when Bueller jumps on a parade float and lip-syncs to Wayne Newton's "Danke Schoen" and The Beatles' "Twist and Shout." Meanwhile, suspicious Principal Rooney, who's all too familiar with Bueller's pranks, is out to catch him in his lie. An anthem to rebellious youth, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is a witty prescription for teenage angst.
