We've got plenty of time on our hands, so I thought it would be a great idea to check out what is said to be the "best movie set in Illinois."

So, Collider shared a photo gallery of the best movies set in each state and while there are plenty of great flicks filmed in Illinois only one could be called the "best."

There are plenty to choose from, I mean, Thrillist said The Fugitive was the best movie set in Illinois a few years ago.

There's also Home Alone, Groundhog Day, Blues Brothers and countless others, but none of those topped the list.

Here's a hint: It's a John Hughes movie.

Was it Sixteen Candles? Nope. Breakfast Club? Sorry, no.

Actually, it was Ferris Bueller's Day Off. A story about a high school kid who plays hooky and goes on a tremendous adventure throughout the streets of Chicago.

If you haven't watch Ferris Bueller yet, what are you waiting for? It's a movie about a kid who takes a day off. It sounds like something many of us across Illinois have been doing for nearly a month now.
