5 Iconic Scenes from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

Celebrating 30 years of Ferris Bueller

Parade Scene Ferris Bueller

Even though I wasn’t born or raised in the 80’s when classic films were being made, John Hughes’ movies are timeless and have appealed to me in a way that modern young adult movies aren’t able to. John Hughes might’ve been one of the few adults in the 80s who fully understood what it was like to be a teen, at a time when young adults were expected to have their goals and dreams all laid out.

One of my favorite films from John Hughes is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. In two hours, the movie shows what it’s like to be a teenager; the confusion of not knowing what you want to do with your life, the feeling of invincibility, defying authority, etc. As of today, it’ll be 30 years since Ferris Bueller’s Day Off came out and to celebrate I’ve put together five iconic scenes from the movie. Enjoy!
