“Rumours have swirled for months about a new Ferris Bueller movie” Really? This is the first that I’ve read anything about it!
When I first noticed the article, I was pretty excited. Then I read through it, and realized that Matthew Broderick not only wasn’t going to be in it, but wanted nothing to do with it… other than giving his blessing. And that made me start to wonder if my initial excitement might have been caused simply because of nostalgia.. which is probably the case. And then I began to wonder if I really needed an update to the classic original… probably not.
I’ve seen Ferris Bueller’s Day Off too many times to count. It’s one of my all-time favourite movies. I never get tired of watching this movie, and it’s hard for me to imagine any spin-off, update or anything else coming close to the original magic that makes this movie a classic.
Sometimes things are best left alone.
