    Bueller. Bueller. Bueller. I think this is one of those first movies for me that invaded my personal vernacular and remains today. Great trip down memory lane, indeed an amazing find.

      It’s SO quotable, isn’t it! “Ferris Bueller, you’re my hero”….
      Thanks for reading!

    I was in high school from ’80-’84 and I LOVE John Hughes! He was able to capture the feel and sound of the ’80’s perfectly. I loved his use of music!

      And I read that he refused to issue a soundtrack for this film because he didn’t feel the music was cohesive, or something. He had such an ear for music and for teenagers, that’s for sure.

    I loved that movie! I must have seen it forty times when I was a teenager. Must dig it out again. It’s right up there with Sixteen Candles and St Elmo’s Fire.

    From the legendary Ferris Bueller to Inspector Gadget….what ever happened to Matthew Broderick???

      Aaah, yes “Inspector Gadget” … the forgotten years. Returned with a triumph in “Election” though (definitely in my top 20 films of all time). Have you seen it? Some reviewers have even suggested that his character in “Election” is what Ferris Bueller as an adult would have been like (and let’s just say Ferris should’ve had a few less days off!)

    I was watching tv the other night and an ad for Ferris came on and I immediately thought of you how funny is that and as much as I love Ferris my ultimate 80’s movie has to be The Breakfast Club.
