Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

At this point, we all know what it is like to be out of the classroom or office. “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is a classic film that everyone should see at least once. See how this high school prankster manages to stay under the radar while his principal is out to catch him for the last time.
