I remember seeing the movie posters at the theater when I was a kid but I didn't see the movie until a year or so later when it came out on video. Matthew Broderick helped create one of the most memorable characters of all time. I mean, what guy didn't want to be that loveable rogue, Ferris? He could do pretty much anything he wanted with little or no consequences. This is one of the most memorable Comedies from the 80's.
