Ferris and Jeanie Bueller Intense sibling rivalry was one of the many themes of writer-director John Hughes' surprisingly insightful teen comedy romp. While Ferris (Matthew Broderick) seems to coast through life, Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) is left to seethe with envy at the unfairness of the situation. In the end, Ferris learns that he can't do it all on his own and Jeanie learns to loosen up, thanks to -- um, yes -- Charlie Sheen. To add a creepy vibe to this brother-sister dynamic, real-life actors Broderick and Grey dated during filming and were briefly engaged.
