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!!
