Welcome Back Bueller

I think there’s a part of every nerdy boy growing up that wants to be Ferris Bueller. Smooth in every situation, admired and cared for by all, skipping school for baseball and a hot girlfriend. Who doesn’t want that life?

That’s why it made my heart cheer to see the teaser over the weekend of Matthew Broderick returning to Ferris form via a Honda commercial for the Super Bowl. But now that it’s out I feel a bit unfulfilled. There’s so much potential here but it feels a bit flat. Is it missing a Cameron? A drugged up Charlie Sheen? Perhaps a gummy bear that’s been in the pocket all day? All of these things are very doable.

I don’t know, maybe I’m being too nostalgic. You be the judge.
