Bueller? … Bueller? … Bueller?
By Michael O’Connell, Special to Metromix
It’s been 25 long years since Matthew Broderick first ditched school for a day so glorious, it made the world want to play hooky. Originally released June 11, 1986, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” has since become “Citizen Kane” of the teen genre—a source of continuous cultural reference and unmatchable quality.
The cast of the film, however, hasn’t aged quite as well. Sure, Broderick lingers in the spotlight with help from that eternally boyish grin, but most of his cohorts have fallen completely off the radar. Until now.
