Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Cast: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jennifer Grey
Playing hookey, borrowing a Ferrari, singing on a float in a parade, and going out to lunch with your best friend and girlfriend never looked so good. Ferris' cheeky outlook makes taking a sick day -- and evading the principal -- seem like child's play.
What Parents Like: For all the elaborate ruses, nothing really bad happens...to your car anyway.
What Makes Our Inner Kid Squeal: Charlie Sheen, in a bad-boy cameo, melts the frost off Ferris' sister at the police station.
