REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., Aug. 15, 2001
When people think fondly of John Hughes, it's movies like Ferris Bueller that they're thinking of. This one's drenched in Eighties-style teen spirit. Matthew Broderick plays a kid who ditches high school for the day. The movie follows his adventure and teen vicissitudes.
