I find it hard to believe that “Ferris Bueller” is 30!!! years old. In Chicago, celebrations are being held--a tour of sites, a parade, in fact, a Ferris Fest.
I adore this movie because it’s full of fun and it is a John Hughes film, the best writer/director at letting us remember childhood, adults, and fun. My sister swore we played this film all the time whenever she visited my house. My #2son can recite the whole thing.
If you haven’t watched, here’s a bit: Ferris Bueller is a high school senior and by pretending to be sick, skips a day from school with his girlfriend and best friend Cameron.
Not so bad—right?
Only they appropriate Cameron’s dad’s Ferrari.
Go to a ball game and catch a fly.
Participates in a parade-Twist and Shout!
Elude the oily assistant principal.
Thwart Ferris’ sister who wants to know why him and not her.
Cons their way into a swanky restaurant.
And talk about their lives and future.Boy, I’d have loved to do those things. Only I was the good girl and never skipped. I was in a parade. LOL.
My favorite scenes:
The shot of the assistant principal’s eyeball through a knothole.
The girl asking the assistant principal if he’d like a gummy bear, warm from her pocket.
