My friend is the kid in the very first scene who is drooling on his desk.

And I think I will always have a little crush on Mia Sara.

Bueller...

Bueller...

Bueller...


YES?..... the first time I heard that recorded advertisment I was half naked.... in a dept. store dressing room. I bumped into everything scurring to cover myself, thinking some one was paging me... or worse... stalking me!

.. Or how would you like to face the constant baloney every time you called your sons out of school for the day with the last name of Bueller?

Yet, I came to not wince... yes, even enjoy the crazy ole show.
Favorite parts: Cameron's face after the car took a dive and especially the final scene when the kid offers the principal some candy on the bus after he's been demolished.

Pati Buehler

I owe the film this... it's given me the opportunity to use the line " Mr. Buehler, you're my hero" with real meaning. re: Ferris Buller's Day Off! ...has  a special place in my heart!

I heard that you were feeling ill
Headache, fever and a chill
But I came to restore your pluck
'Cause I'm the nurse who likes to...

Hey, has anyone else ever notice that when Cameron kills the car, the license plate is NRVOUS?
I had to check imdb to make sure I didn't imagine it

LOVE this movie. Wish the dvd had more features, but it's just a must-own.

Saw Alan Ruck in The Producers last weekend at the Kennedy Center. He was warm, funny and generally very good in the part. His singing is OK but not much better than Steven Weber's or even Matthew Broderick's. He has a nice voice, it's just not too strong, and some notes are not held as long as they are on Broadway.

Still, hist timing is perfect and the aducience loved him, although he is a little big to be believable as a "mousy" accountant. Luis J. Stadler as Maax was very funny, but it is hard to understand some of his lyrics and his singin is merely adequate. Still, he gets laughs and plays it in a very unique way, not trying to copy Nathan.

Lee Roy Reams is a great Roger De Bris, but not nearly as perfect as Gary Beach.

I wish I could see Ruck in the part.

I saw Stadlen as Max on B'way and was thouroughly disappointed.
