Ferris Bueller's Day Off has landed on Netflix and that's the rest of our evening sorted

Ferris Bueller's Day Off has landed on Netflix and that's the rest of our evening sorted.

The streaming service took to Twitter earlier today [April 1] to confirm the news, as they revealed the first round of new additions for April.

And while there are plenty of unreal new options to pick from - but we'll get to those in a little bit - it was the addition of the John Hughes classic that has gone straight to the top of our Netflix queue.

The movie follows high school student Ferris Bueller who - as the name would suggest - wants a day off from high school. And he's come up with an incredibly elaborate plan to pull it off.

After talking his friend Cameron into taking his father's prized Ferrari, they pick up Ferris' girlfriend Sloane - and the trio head into Chicago for the day.

And while they're taking in what the city has to offer, the school principal Ed Rooney is convinced that Ferris is (not for the first time) playing hookey - and is determined to catch him out.

Other new additions to Netflix today include all six seasons of Community; Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, as well as The Town.

The final seven Studio Ghibli films have also been added to Netflix - and you can read more about that here.
