Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Tonight we continued the children’s cinematic education with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

The movies of my day (yea, this is very much within the timeline) rated as PG-13 prove one thing, we were not sheltered from language and innuendo like kids are today.

PG-13 from 1986 would probably be a hard R today if you threw in a bare breast.


Personally, I think that the John Hughes movies of the 80s are masterpieces. Gen X can quote them line for line. It might even be a better proof of age for most anything in place of ID.

Cashier: Can I see your ID?

Customer: Oh, he’s very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads – they all adore him. They think he’s a righteous dude.

They don’t and won’t make movies like this anymore. Their day has come and gone. Often replicated, never duplicated comes to mind.

At least we have the historical archives.

Which reminds me, grab those hard copies while you can.

The sheriff is near.

Wink wink, nudge nudge.

That’s it. That’s the post.
