With his best friend and girlfriend, they head to Chicago for a day on the town. Hilarious is the scene when Ferris pretends he is the "Sausage King" of Chicago to get seated in a four star restaurant. Later, Ferris climb a float in a downtown parade for a hysterical rendition of Danke Shoen with German clad dancers to a cover of the Beatles' song Twist and Shout. This movie will have your sides aching and leave lasting memories of unforgettable lines. It's a must see for anyone who has ever ditched school, or for those who wished they had.
