That's cool. Did you blow him away or somethin'?

My favourite scene(s) from Ferris Bueller's Day Off and a perfect example how a minor character can completely upstage the leads - Charlie Sheen embodies so many cliched female fantasies in this scene (besides being a total babe) he is semi-dangerous, articulate, mysterious and actually interested in Jeanie's problems.

Don't get me wrong I totally love this entire movie (big John Hughes fan from way back) - Sloane's fashion sense, Cameron's dads house and Matthew Broderick's dance moves.


I really gotta watch this film again.

Actually just borrowed this from the library! You forgot to mention re: Sheen, possibly the best hair in a movie ever. I forgot he was once a total babe.

P.s what did John Hughes do to Charlie Sheen & Jon Cryer that now all they have is Two And A Half Men? The shame!

Oh totally! He was once the absolute hotness - i love that we never find out his name as well.

2 1/2 is such an abomination - i like that you blame john hughes for this. but why oh why is it succesful? who watches this show - millions of people secretly i'm sure.
