Common Sense Media: Best Back-to-School Movies

23 of 27

'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' (1986)

Ages: 14+

Synopsis: Hilarious comedy classic; language makes it PG-13.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this movie has surprising amounts of "bad" language and thus isn't for younger kids. Also, it's about skipping school. So you might want to get a word in about not trying this at home. Ferris lies, shows off, and steals a car. It's a little disconcerting that he never faces any consequences — even Bart Simpson usually has to take responsibility. Mostly, the movie glorifies defiance of authority. Sure, it's a little edgy, but teens can handle it. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Paramount)
