Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

Matthew Broderick as "Ferris Bueller"

Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, "borrows" a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago. On Ferris' trail is high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch him in the act.

Golden Globe (1986) Nominated Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical
