No '80s film could inspire you to live out your youth to its extreme more than Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It's the perfect amalgam of everything you fantasized about while stuck in homeroom. If a joy ride in a Ferrari with your best friend and beautiful girlfriend wasn't already a mind-blowing idea to you, toss in a downtown parade where you perform "Twist and Shout," a free lunch at a fancy restaurant, and the image of your crusty, pornstached principal getting chewed out by your dog. Heaven was never represented so accurately in the movies.
