REASONS TO LOVE FERRIS BUELLER:
Because he’s impossibly cool, a rebel we wish we were who thumbs his nose at the soul-crushing and relatable nightmare of high school in order to have awesome adventures and help his neurotic best friend experience an epiphany about his own place in the world. He is us, but how we’d like to be.

REASONS TO LOVE MATTHEW BRODERICK’S FERRIS-CENTRIC HONDA COMMERCIAL:
Because he’s a self-referential movie actor, a pampered doughy guy who thumbs his nose at a cushy job many of us would kill to have in order to have some mundane, middle-aged adventures and help no one but himself to experience…well, some driving around in a new car? He is us, but how we’d be if we really truly hate ourselves.

John Hughes is rolling over in his grave.

Was Alan Ruck not available to join him? Even if only for one scene?

The idea of this was great and there were a lot of knowing little nods, but in the end the ten second teaser was far more exciting than the pay off.
