1. The Ending
Watching Ferris race against his parents and sister to get back home in time, tested the entire essence of the film. In those remaining minutes of the movie, the audience is left debating one question; will Ferris’ actions finally catch up with him or will he manage to escape once again? What’s awesome about this film is that John Hughes allows both to happen. Ferris is finally caught by his sister but, choosing to team up against the persistent high school principal instead, Jeanie lets Ferris off the hook.
