Ferris Bueller's Day Off vs. Ladyhawke



Matthew Broderick's early career face-off. I know every word of both of these movies, but I'll have to go with Ferris. No real reason. Okay, the Alan Parsons score might get me a little bit away from LadyHawke.

I think it's likely that Ladyhawke inspired Hughes in crafting the character of Ferris, as there are certain similarities between Broderick's later role and that of Philippe "the Mouse" Gaston. However, Bueller's monologues work a lot better, and Broderick's performance is more consistent — in Ladyhawke, his accent is all over the place.
