It would be THE movie of all movies. It would be THE greatest creation ever. Ferris Bueller goes to school with the Breakfast Club kids and other classic 80’s movies. Ferris is the class clown. Bender is still the tough guy. Ducky is lovable ducky. Molly Ringwald has a tough job because she needs to be prissy Claire who got everything on a silver platter and at the same time be Dannie from the wrong side of the tracks. Did I mention Michael J Fox is in this? Yeh it’s wacky. Picture this. Chicago 1985. Ferris fakes being sick and he recruits Sloan and the others to skip school but they need a car. They convince Cameron to grab his dad’s Delorean. Ferris, Cameron, Sloan, Marty McFly, Ducky and all the Breakfast Club folks jump in. They reach 88 miles per hour and something goes horribly wrong. All of a sudden they get transported to upstate New York in the 1960’s. They’re at Kellerman’s for the end of the summer dance party in Dirty Dancing. The back tables are now filled with Ferris and Ducky and Bender and Claire, and the jock, and the crazy girl, and the brain, and Marty McFly and Sloan and now Patrick Swayze who says nobody puts Baby in a corner. But they’re all really weirded out because Ferris’ sister from the movie is Baby from the other movie and even though they travelled in time to the past, it is clear that Baby is still there in the corner. The Delorean won’t start and there’s no clock tower so there’s no electricity for time travel. But Ferris has this great idea to get back. Why can’t they just put the Delorean on blocks and put it in reverse to take the mileage and years right off. It’s sure to work, and thank god because Cameron is freaking out that his dad’s going to kill him since they took out the Delorean and time traveled without permission. Ferris gets on stage and sings Danke Schoen which just came out in 1962 and since this is 1963 it is perfect timing, then Marty gets on stage and introduces the crowd to Rock and Roll with a major guitar solo. Tough guy Bender decks Patrick Swayze and steps in just as Baby is about to do “The Lift”. Then lovable Ducky decks Bender. He isn’t gonna be upstaged again. Ducky brings Baby to the ground and they kiss just as the Delorean reaches 88 MPH backwards and they’re all transported in a flash– back to 1985 and the detention room where Principal Biff says if he hears another word out of anyone he’ll be cracking skulls, and then Bender asks him if anyone knows that he raids Barry Manilow’s wardrobe. The principal doesn’t think it’s funny. Everyone at school is really relieved to see Ferris because my best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it’s pretty serious. The prom is that night. The final scene of the movie shows Ducky and Baby, Bender and Dannie, the brainiac who scored the lady from Weird Science which is weird because he was in that movie too, Ferris and Sloan, Marty and Claire… And Cameron.. Poor Cam… He gets together with Ferris’ sister who looks a whole lot like Baby. What a prom to remember. After the prom, they all go off for a night of fireworks and romance at St. Elmo’s Fire.
