No matter how many years go by, youll always be able to relate to Ferris and his childish antics. Hes just a normal kid who doesnt want to deal with his responsibilities, and who could blame him? If you could find a way to skip school or work to watch a baseball game, walk through a museum, and star in a parade, would you turn the opportunity down? While you cant act like Ferris every single day, hes the type of person you should be when you have an actual day off. Dont waste it by sitting around and moping like Cameron. Get up and have some adventures that you can brag about when youre old. You just cant forget that classic line: Life moves pretty fast. If you dont stop and look around once and a while, you could miss it. As lighthearted as the film is, it took some blood and sweat to make it happen. John Hughes isnt an easy man to work with, and even though the original cut was two hours and forty-five minutes, he still wanted to film more footage. That didnt end up happening, but he did end up with a great film and some great stories about how it was made.
