Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a classic for a reason.
While I usually enjoy movies with deep, thoughtful plots, Ferris still tops my list of favorite of movies. It's an incredibly fun movie, but at no point is it really shallow or a throw-away movie as so many "fun" movies tend to be.
I wouldn't recommend this movie for children. While the language is overall pretty mild, I just think many of the dilemmas and feelings in the movie would go over a younger child's head completely. It isn't really a movie for kids, it's a movie for older teens (it deals a lot with the character's impending graduation from high school and what lies beyond) and adults.
Best of all, no matter how many decades go by, this movie never really becomes dated. The clothes and hairstyles may make us a cringe (though they're quite toned-down when you consider how bad it could have been), but the plot, the characters, and everything that happens in the movie is completely timeless.
Watch this movie whenever you want to smile!
