If you were homesick and your friend asked you to pick him up, would you do it? What if your friend then destroyed your father's favorite car— would you forgive him? Mother-daughter hosts and film analysts Tara McNamara (Gen X) and Riley Roberts (Gen Z) discuss whether or not Ferris Bueller is a good friend to his sidekick, Cameron.
The other thing is, Farrah's basically steals a car. Yeah, and then they wreck it after a whole day of it being perfect. I think the idea is right that Cameron that the day gives Cameron the courage to stand up to his father. But it's so cringe E and I don't know it. It does feel like I'm glad Farrah says I'm going to take the blame. I'm gonna take the blame. I'm glad he volunteers that after forcing Cameron to take the car and abuses the situation and won't take it home, I mean, I honestly wouldn't. I mean, I'd probably find Ferris, like, hot if I was, like in his high school. But I would not have gone and picked him up. I would not. What do you mean? Because he was using Cameron the entire time just for a ride. Yeah, well, cameras is that they established Cameron has been his best friend his whole life. Yeah, but his When he called him on the phone, he was like, Come pick me up. I want to leave. I want to leave my house. The fact that you are making me sit here in my own house and wait for you is rude. The fact that he's telling him you're sick, but I don't care. But I think that he's like, you know, he's probably not really sick. He's always sick. I'm gonna get him out of the house. He's just sitting there anyway and we'll go do something worthwhile. And then at the end, I do appreciate that. He says The reason I did this is because we only have a couple more months and then we're gonna go our separate ways and I think that's true. But I don't think that's when teams took away from it, at least not at the time. You know, um, you know, and then you also have the fact that Ferris is Eddie Haskell. Um and I don't know if you know who Eddie Haskell is, but he's this kind of, uh, prototype of a character that came from Leave It to Beaver, which was in the fifties. But they re ran it all the time when I was a kid. Um, he's this He's this. Hello, Mrs Cleaver. You're looking very nice today, Mrs Cleaver. Oh, that apple pie smells wonderful, Mrs Cleaver and he's really the troublemaker So he gets the parents on this side because he's a kiss ass. And then, uh, but in reality, he's the one you don't want your kid hanging out with. And so Faris is really that kid, But we make him the hero in this movie. Yeah. Do you know anybody like that? All your friends? Yes.
