10 Things I Learned From: Ferris Bueller's Day Off

  • If you are sassy enough (and/or the unrestrained ego of a clinically depressed teen), you can do anything, to anyone and not suffer the consequences.
  • Parades have the most lax security of anything. Next Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade – bum rush that thang.
  • The most serene place to sit and think is at the bottom of the pool. Until your douchebag best friend pulls you free, that is.
  • Charlie Sheen, despite what he says, has never been winning. Just ask Jennifer Grey.
  • Even then, Alan Ruck was the perfect person to play Thurston Howell III in a remake of Gilligan’s Island.
  • Parents in 80’s movies are truly the dumbest creatures on Earth – even moreso than the current crop of Disney parents. Those coughs don’t even sound real enough to be made by a synthesizer.
  • In the 80’s, you could touch underage school children in public, and no one would bat an eyelid.
  • Stare at this too long, and you will go mad. It is a scientific fact.
  • John Hughes had some sort of Electra Complex that needed to be worked out.
  • The film, as a whole, is kind of overrated to me.



    For both not buying into the Charlie Sheen bullshit hype, and for calling this film overrated.

  2. and how to wreck a beautiful car. And I don't even like cars.
