Bueller...Bueller...Bueller...


Do you remember Ferris Bueller's Day Off? It was one of those great movies where the main character gets in trouble, has fun, and (almost) everything is great in the end. I've seen this movie hundreds of time and I never get tired of it. When I try to get my teenage daughter to watch any of these movies I saw when I was a teenager, she thinks they are weird, not funny, and boring. I guess are kids are so used to non-stop action, animation, and humorous quips every other line that they can't appreciate a good movie....or was it just really bad and I don't want to believe it? All the John Hughes movies, Pretty in Pink, Breakfast Club...how can those not be good?

The Honda marketing team must like Ferris Bueller, too...they are using Matthew Broderick (who played Ferris Bueller), the same music, and trying to replicate the scenes from the movie, although it's updated. For instance, instead of hiding from his dad, Matthew Broderick is hiding from his agent. They both go to a museum. They both sing in parades. It's good fun, it's humorous and I love it! I don't particularly like the Honda CR-V, but I love the commercial. 


Maybe this will interest a new generation  to find out what happens in Ferris Bueller's Day off!!

  3. I agree! I love that commercial & that movie! I live with my niece & her 4 kids and I've been trying to get them to watch the movies I watched growing up. Slowly but, surely it's starting to work. They really like some of them, like this old random movie with Tim Curry called "Worst Witch". I love it. (Should I mention that I found your blog through the challenge?)

  4. Thanks for all the comments! I loved those movies and much better (in my opinion!) than the Disney, squeaky clean movies they make about teens today...since most of them aren't like that!! LOL

  5. Great movie! My kiddos are 4 and just starting to get into watching movies, and so far their favorites are all of the "old" Disney movies that I watched as a kid, like Pinocchio, The Rescuers and Peter Pan. It's been great! But I imagine this won't last ;(

    1. Thanks Chelle! I just signed up for your newsletter and yes, I have considered the difference! Even my youngest does not flinch to a gory, bloody, fight or scene with bad language, which seems to happen more and more! We even went to see a kids movie (don't remember which one) and they had bad words in it! Unbelievable!
