Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is a legend in his school 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 and creatively avoids his high-school principal, his resentful sister and his parents.
