Following this there is a 'Making of' which follows the same format and runs for a quarter of an hour.
'Who is Ferris Bueller?' is a look in more depth at the main character predominantly through the eyes of his creator, John Hughes.
'The World According To Ben Stein' features interviews with Ferris' teacher and is perhaps a touch superfluous given Stein's very limited role in the movie.
'Vintage Ferris Bueller: The Lost Tapes' offers plenty of archival footage where Broderick interviews cast members in a spoofy style.
'Class Album' provides a brief photo gallery.
This is a very satisfying selection of extras, however Paramount have made the somewhat nonsensical decision to exclude John Hughes' audio commentary, which was previously the only additional supplement on the rather bare original release. There is also no inclusion of any deleted scenes that Hughes himself drew reference to in the elusive missing commentary. Having said that, there is plenty of archive footage here of the majesty of the John Hughes mullet which cheered me up no end, so it's not all doom and gloom. Pat Sharp, eat your heart out.
Hughes' finest hour, this marvellous film is one of cinema's most enduring teenpics. This is a very nice and overdue SE from Paramount, however the lack of audio commentary means it's far from definitive and true fans will have to face a double dip
