12 More Deleted Scenes That Explain Confusing Movie Moments

3. The Most Expensive Day-Off Ever - Ferris Bueller's Day Off

The Confusing Moment:

How on Earth did Ferris Bueller, a lay-about teenager who openly expresses the fact that he has no money at the start of his film, afford to go to a baseball game, a fancy restaurant and a museum without a dime to his name on his infamous day off?

Did he just steal it?

The Deleted Scene:

Yep, he stole it.

Because the earlier version of Ferris Bueller didn't realise that he had to be a loveable scamp and not a complete dick, there was initially a scene in there that showed Ferris discovering where his father keeps his precious bonds and then stealing them to pay for his good times.

Presumably, it was cut because it made Ferris look less like a hero and more like an ungrateful hooligan who audiences wouldn't have been able to get behind at all.
