Movie: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
Played by: Matthew Broderick
Ferris Bueller is one of the most charismatic characters of ‘80s comedy, but they also say Mussolini was rather charming. So sure, he has a certain joie de vivre about him, but Ferris is also a calculating sociopath who leaves ruined lives in his wake, from his meek best friend staring down the wrath of a neglectful father to a concerned principal who rightfully pursued him after seeing through a web of lies, computer hacking and fraudulent death notices. Even the snooty concierge who called bullshit on this twit’s claim to be the Sausage King of Chicago is likely to be reprimanded due to Ferris’s selfish behavior. And what will become of the funds raised through the various ‘Save Ferris’ campaigns? We’re guessing they’re not getting donated to cancer research.
