 Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Movie Rental Review
Here the Alfie male is Ferris Bueller (played with irresistible magnetism by Matthew Broderick), a smooth and cheerfully-dishonest high-school con-artist who gets everything he wants throughout the film, playing petty con games and slacking off.
Faking illness, Bueller is left in bed by his clueless parents to "recover." Once they're gone he springs to action and explains his "seize the day" philosophy to you, as he phones his much-more hardworking (and, thus, downcast and depressed) friend and classmate Cameron (Alan Ruck) to play hooky along with him.
Ferris' kid sister (Jennifer Grey) also resents her older brother getting away with such antics constantly, and tries to rat him out.

 Ferris Bueller's Day Off | The A.V. Club
In that sense, Ferris Bueller may be his most shrewdly calculated fantasy this side of The Breakfast Club: Here, the standard teen hang-ups (clueless and/or hostile parents, worry about the future, hatred of school, etc.) are relieved by a skip day that even Jefferson might have found excessive.
Instead of spending the day with his stomach in knots, fearful of getting caught, Matthew Broderick's Ferris is something of a teenage superhero: serenely self-confident, always the cleverest guy in the room, and concerned about nothing more than having a good time.
Ferris Bueller is a touchstone for those who came of age in the '80s, and it holds a certain appeal as Gen X couch-potato comfort food—it's engaging without ever being all that funny.
