Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the last of John Hughes' teen comedies, is arguably the ultimate extension of the form. The ultimate youth idealization, Ferris is reckless, anti-authoritarian, and unstoppable; yet everyone can't help but love him. Ultimately Ferris Bueller's Day Off is about knowing the restrictions of adulthood and therefore living up youth as much as possible to have those days to look back on, it's a message of "no regrets", so it's no wonder it's appealed to so many people. This message is so powerful that some speculate that Ferris is just a product of mild-mannered Cameron's imagination! Whatever your theory, keep those memories alive with a Save Ferris t-shirt, or go in disguise with an Abe Froman tee.
