Today's pick is from a movie that many of us will reconize as a classic, Ferris Bueller's day off. Directed written and produced by John Hughes. The film follows Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) who decides to skip school by faking illness and persuades his girlfriend Slone (Mia Sara) and his best friend Cameron (Alan Ruck), who turns out to be quite a character, to join him.
In this scene, after being continuously phoned by Ferris, and urged to drive over and 'come pick him up' Cameron considers his options in a calm and collected way.
Many teen movies from the 80s have aged horribly and faded into obscurity. Ferris Bueller's Day Off however remains a classic. For what reason I'm not sure, I do however agree with it's status as a classic. Ferris isn't in himself a lovable character, in fact he can be somewhat annoying. Whereas Cameron for some reason seem to be a character that a lot of people, myself included, can relate to a lot better. It is perhaps this balance in the two main roles that make this movie such good viewing, that, and the writing and directing of the late John Hughes.
