What are they honestly trying to run away from? While the youth galavants around, a suspicious principal, played by Jeffrey Jones, is sniffing out their chaotic trail. Ferris Bueller's Day Off hits almost every button an audience desires: romance, adventure, comedy, tragedy, all wrapped up in 80's teen comedy.
