Ferris Bueller's Day Off : How has a sequal not been made?

How has a sequal not been made?

It would be perfect to just show a grown up ferris frustrated at work. Stuck at a 9-5 on the brink of snapping and just wants a day off. A grown up ferris writes itself he wants relive his youth and ashamed how time has passed him by.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

Watch what you say cause if Hollywood has its way it will be done , but with an all black cast and that would ruin it!

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

Just, no. He seems like a smart character. What kind of career do you think he ended up with where he can't take a day or a week off work? Jobs where you aren't allowed to take a personal day or a vacation day - those are jobs for teenagers and college students. Or people who end up being a burger flipper.

A movie about a teenager playing hooky from school and doing all sorts of things around the city, that worked fine. A movie about an adult calling in sick to work then having fun - that would be cringeworthy.

Possibly Ferris could be the boss or parent, and the younger person is ditching school or work. And this time it's Bueller who is in Rooney's position. That may work.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

No, I think the movie doesn't need a sequel.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

It would be tough to do a sequel to this film. It would be tough to find a satisfying plotline.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

yeah exactly i mean come on i would cheapen this film and its legacy so much if they made a sequel some films it would be a sin for them to have a sequel or remake bc it would cheapen the original film and dirty it.

the only people who want a sequel to this are ignorant people of today the youth of today who dont know that some films should never be remade or have a sequel.

i think it might be that they are ok with badly made, mediocre remakes and sequels since the '00s started to now so they think every film should be remade bc that is the trend of nowadays in no creativity hollywood since the '00s started to now.

nobody has ever asked for a sequel or remake to this film.

i am very angry at the fact that they actually remade another film that should have never been remade or have a sequel, top gun. that film should never have been touched.


and they actaully copied the scene of the aircraft coming into the airport and disturbing the people in the station in a funny way. really? why do i want to watch the same movie twice?

Re: How has a sequel not been made?…

Because it HASN'T been made. That's HOW!

Sometimes the simple and obvious answer is the best answer.

How can they be so blind as to not see that?

Do you LOVE how I give the LOGICAL, NO-NONSENSE and COMMON SENSE (OBVIOUS) answer?

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

And because the first movie wasn't that great.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

Yup.

Just because it was a hit doesn't make it great.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

Actually, the real reason was it didn't make enough money. Hollyweird is just in it for the money.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

It made over 10 times its fairly low budget.

A sequel wouldn't work. It needed to be made by the time the 80's was over and it wasn't necessary.

The film worked for what it was, for when it was made.

I didn't see it at the time, as I was over the Hughes hype, but loved it when I saw it much later in the late 90's.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

Obviously that wasn't enough money for the greedy bastards in Hollyweird.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

Just checking out the first 4 Hughes "directed" films from the mid 80's and while Ferris made more money than all of them, Breakfast Club made the most when taking budget ratio into account. It is only listed as $1mill budget and made over $50mill worldwide.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

Obviously that was not enough for the greedy bastards in Hollyweird. And btw, this marks the end of this conversation, so buh bye!



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon!

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

So you are saying you wanted a sequel?

Since Breakfast Club was so popular and made a lot of money for Universal, why wasn't a sequel made to that?

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

Does every fucking movie have to have a fucking sequel?

Sometimes a one and done movie is the way to go!

They SHOULD'VE done that with Jaws! ALL its sequels were USELESS and UNNECESSARY!

"THAT'S SOME BAD SHIT, HARRY!".

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

Especially the last one where the shark follows, yes fucking FOLLOWS, Brody's widow from America to the Bahamas to go after her there!
WT actual Fuck?

Were you aware of this stupidity or saw it?

Some consider Election 1999 to be the sequel.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

bc we dont need sequel for such ground breakingly great and classic films. some films are so great that it would be a sin for them to have a sequel or remake that is why this film never had a sequel or remake.

it would be wrong and feel wrong to show him later in life or earlier in life in a movie or a tv show oh they did that though that sucks.

one thing i love about the '80s is a lot of the classic films well at least the teen films like john hughes fils never had a sequel. this is bc it would be wrong for them to have sequel or remake.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

How about a sequel where Ferris crashes his car in Northern Ireland?

Re: How has a sequal not been made?…

WHY Northern Ireland?

Never happen. It would completely contradict the script of the first movie. No. Ferris had life figured out. I am sure he has no regrets.

Toastedcheese. I hear he likes the taste even better the second time around.

Re: How has a sequal not been made?

There were talks a few years ago about a sequel where Ferris was breaking Cameron out of a retirement home. Never came to be. Probably for the best.
