Educating Tweens and Teens on Pop Culture: The Movies I INSIST My Kids See

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

Here's Why: I'm not going to lie. I'm not a Matthew Broderick fan. I never was. But this movie essentially introduces the adolescent to, well, questionable behavior. Bueller (Broderick), the budding sociopath, fakes sick and takes his besties on a day of hooky they won't soon forget. Your kids will learn such gems of knowledge as what a panic attack looks like, and that you can't drive a car backwards to take miles off a car. Plus, it's sort of a classic. If Bueller pulled this stunt today, he'd be caught before lunch, with all his Instagramming and checking in on Foursquare.
