    Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    ★★½

    Gonna mark this one down as 'things that aged poorly'.

    Cameron's story is worth 4 stars but Ferris is an arsehole and I only want to give him 2. Ferris Gets more of the film so here we are.

    There's a lot of other stuff happening here, most of it inspiring varying degrees of 'wait, that's pretty messed up was that supposed to be a joke?'.

    But it's shot gorgeously and the score is killer. Worth a watch, even if the lingering impression of it is definitely that that headmaster needs to get fired.

    Oh man I wish I liked this film more... I got to see it at the Glasgow Film Festival in a packed out audience with Simon Pegg in attendance and still couldn't quite catch the vibe.

    Ultimately it's a film of extremes, that is always doing too much or too little on some level. Sometimes the performances are fantastic but it makes it all the more glaring when the actors are running through the motions. Sometimes the script is perfect…

    Not quite as good as it's predecessor - it relies a little too much on 'oh wow look a British thing' jokes to soar that high, and I would say that Donnie Yen is very much underused here. But the general concept remains solid and the script does force Owen Wilson to use 'ass soup' as a positive descriptor of an entire country
