Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a beloved teen comedy from John Hughes. While it's about skipping school -- with almost zero negative consequences (something that you might want to get a word in about) -- it's also charming and clever. Expect frequent profanity (including "f--k" and "s--t") and pretty iffy behavior from the main character (Ferris lies, shows off, and steals a car), as well as some kissing/making-out, scuffles between characters, and some background smoking and drinking. Mostly, the movie glorifies defiance of authority. And while it's a little edgy, teens can handle it.

Sexual Content

Kissing/making out, references to seeing a girl change before she goes in the water (nothing shown), voluptuous woman dressed as a nurse delivers most of a racy "candygram" (it's implied she's a prostitute).


Some scuffles; an adult is attacked by both a teenage girl and a dog. A car falls over a ledge and is smashed.


Fairly frequent profanity includes "ass," "s--t," "bitch," and "f--k."

Social Behavior

Despite the movie's lighthearted take on some naughty behavior, Ferris never faces any consequences for the rules he's broken. But friendship and believing in yourself are also themes, and there's something to be said for Ferris' approach to living life to the fullest.


Ferrari automobiles and the city of Chicago couldn't ask for better promotions.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
