Ferris Bueller's Day Off Blu-ray Review

Life moves pretty fast. In fact, it’s been 25 years since writer/director John Hughes unleashed Ferris Bueller on the world…and we’ve been laughing ever since. On August 2, 2011, Paramount Home Entertainment will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the venerated classic FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF with a Blu-ray and DVD featuring commemorative packaging that sports a new graphic outline of Ferris’ adventures through Chicago including visits to Wrigley Field, the Art Institute of Chicago, and a fabulous parade through downtown. The discs additionally feature previously released, in-depth bonus material that takes viewers behind-the-scenes to learn about the making of the enduringly popular film.

Matthew Broderick stars as a delightfully charming high school student who, with his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) and best bud Cameron (Alan Ruck), ditches school to enjoy one perfect day as a kid with no responsibilities. The seminal comedy about Ferris’ wild adventures in the Windy City during a single, glorious day off continues to be enjoyed, quoted and revered 25 years after its theatrical debut.

The FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF Blu-ray and DVD include the behind-the-scenes featurettes “Getting the Class Together - The Cast of Ferris Bueller's Day Off”, “The Making of Ferris Bueller's Day Off”, “Who is Ferris Bueller?”, “The World According to Ben Stein” and ”Vintage Ferris Bueller: The Lost Tapes” as well as a Class Album.


The FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD, English 2.0 Dolby Surround and English Mono and English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles. The DVD is presented in English 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround, English 2.0 Dolby Digital Surround and French 2.0 Dolby Digital Surround with English, French and Spanish subtitles. Both discs include the following:

Our Review:
The last time I saw this movie I was in high school. I don't know if other people experienced the same thing I had, but for reason, my high school teachers loved showing this movie when we had movie days. I watched this movie at least 10 times in one year. Looking back, I still think it is odd that my high school teachers would want to show a movie that's about a couple of seniors ditching school for a day of fun. In any case, to celebrate it's 25 years release, you can purchase a copy of it on either DVD or Blu-ray. We got a Blu-ray copy to review. As a mother of two, high school is so far away from me now, but I actually enjoyed watching this movie again. It reminded me of the care free high school days I had and my interesting view of life and the future back then. A really great movie, if you enjoyed it as a teenager, you will want to watch this again.
