ONLY THE MEEK GET PINCHED - THE BOLD SURVIVE



Last night Rob, Eric and I watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off before (yet another) monumental night of midweek drinking. It was the first time I've watched it all the way through in a very long time, and it's basically perfect in every way. In no particular order, here's a list of this John Hughes masterpiece's accomplishments:

  • Matthew Broderick actually looks sexy; this will never happen again
  • EDIE McCLURG
  • Ben Stein and Kristy Swanson appear in the same scene; this also will never happen again
  • Mia Sara's inexplicable accent
  • Jennifer Grey's inexplicable nose
  • The surprisingly touching scene at the museum
  • Warm-Gummi-Bear-Girl on the bus during the end credits
  • Abe Froman - The Sausage King of Chicago
  • Jeannie: "I'd also like to add that I have my father's gun, and a scorching case of herpes."
Obviously there's so many more to list, and I'm sure I've unintentionally left out some really good ones. My apologies. That being said - do yourself a favor and re-watch Ferris, Cameron, Sloan and (eventually) Jeannie have one of the best days of their lives. You won't be disappointed.
