It doesn't really break any new cinematic ground or anything, but it's a well-made escapist comedy that doesn't take itself too seriously. In entertainment terms, that's greatness.

I smacked jack on his behind today. He's nearly 16 and it's the first time I've smacked him. Teenagers are awful.
hahaha i used to purposely push my mum as far as i could so she'd smack me, at that age and then laugh at her feeling guilty. ask him if he's doing it on purpose?
go on give it a listen, it's good.

I'd put it on the same level as Back to the Future.
I strongly disagree but I can't really say why.
We're talking about two mildly humorous 80's movies with limited plots. Back to the Future was marketed for success, but Ferris Bueller kind of just got popular for reasons. They both have nostalgic value and that's about it. I'd put them on the same level only because of the amount of popularity Ferris got without actually being "mainstream." The screenplay was written in less than a week. The major difference is that B2tF is all about time travel and the storyline covers a 30ish year span, while Ferris takes place all in one day.

Ferris is a good flick, but it isnt of the same caliber of BTTF

I'm a rebel and I'm changing my answer. I'll instead say Four Rooms with Tim Roth, because it's a weird and good bit of entertainment. If only for Tims(I call him Tim now) over the top reactions as well as the final scene with Tarantino chewing the absolute fuck out of the scenery. Plus a myriad of other A-list actors/actress' in bit roles. Put those overpaid bastards in line etc.
