Critics reviews

Once the shit hits the fan in the movie’s last quarter, the movie’s script does some truly spectacular backpedaling to redeem Our Shit Hero. Suddenly, we are informed that Ferris’ only desire in lying, stealing, and cheating his way through this beautiful springtime school day was to show friend Cameron a good time… The logic of traumatizing a friend in order to make him see the beauty in life frankly escapes me, even from a so-called “tough-love” perspective.
