“So that’s how it is in their family …” Longtime readers of Metaflix.com know that the site has two patron saints: Roger Ebert and John Hughes. The filmography of Hughes is among the greatest in Hollywood history and few filmmakers have had such a lasting impact on pop culture.
“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is, of course, one such film of his that continues to age like a fine wine and is forever re-watchable. Everything presented on celluloid–from the story to the songs to the performances–is far greater than the sum total of its parts, which seems to be an uncanny calling card for Hughes. His movies just have that special extra jus that all filmmakers attempt, but few achieve.
Then there’s the actors and actresses in Hughes’ films, which more often than not were catapulted onto the A-list. Jennifer Grey and Mia Sara represented what every woman wanted to be … and every fella wanted to date. Funny, beautiful, charming and sweet–the sheer number of crushes that “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” created is rather unfathomable.
But Jennifer Grey and Mia Sara kissing one another? Had this photo been made public a couple of decades earlier, there might’ve been a supernova. But now there’s so much nostalgia tied to “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” that the picture more so just bleeds good vibes of heartfelt reveries.
