Good call. Bought it on DVD last year but somehow haven't seen it since. One of those rare teen movies that holds up well. Juvenile in parts, but charming with it.

I've never watched Citizen Kane, but I was under the impression it was famed more for its groundbreaking cinematography than for its actual story - anything I've seen/read about it always goes on about the new camera techniques developed etc while it was being made. Technically impressive for its day, but then so was The Phantom Menace...

Can't believe I overlooked Ferris - LOVE that film. Good soundtrack, too.
