Ferris Bueller. Larger than life. Blessed with a magical sense of serendipity. He's a model for all those who take themselves too seriously. A guy who knows the value of a day off.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off chronicles the events in the day of a rather magical young man, Ferris (Matthew Broderick). One spring day, toward the end of his senior year, Ferris gives in to an overwhelming urge to cut school and head for downtown Chicago with his girl (Mia Sara) and his best friend (Alan Ruck), to see the sights, experience a day of freedom and show that with a little ingenuity, a bit of courage and a red Ferrari, life at 17 can be a joy!

classic film, would make a steal if it was in the £6.99 range, but 9.99 is still to high

I'm not going to sugarcoat this - this is by no means a great looking … I'm not going to sugarcoat this - this is by no means a great looking transfer, but the film itself is able to overcome this.There's a fair amount of grain and detail is often forgone in favor of a flatter, more washed-out look. At first this bugged me, but after a while I warmed to the transfer. Sure, it probably could have looked better (the movie isn't all that old). Still, I would have preferred this look over something so highly scrubbed that Ferris and friends came away looking like shiny androids.The 1080p MPEG-4 AVC 2.35:1 transfer is also probably the best 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' has ever looked. Colors are strong and blacks are fairly solid.While this isn't a noteworthy presentation, by any stretch of the imagination, it still works within the film, and is leaps and bounds beyond previous home video incarnations.




great movie worth any price thanks
