In the movie, three very different friends skip school for the day, and explore the city of Chicago. Each one of them had a very different experience. There was Cameron, who always tried to avoid trouble at any cost. He spent the day being worried and nervous because he was out of his comfort zone. Sloane, who always went with the flow, enjoyed her day and was calm no matter what happened. Then there was Ferris, who took all of the risks he could, and was always positive and outgoing.

    Finally the day was Wednesday the 13th of August. I was so excited to be attending the Jackson County Fair with Ryan, my boyfriend, this year.

He gets Andy to launder money for him as well as forcing Captain Hadley to shoot another inmate. Although I don’t see much of teachers being immoral, I see police offers abusing their power all the time and it always appears on the news.
