When Rooney arrives at Ferris' house he is wearing a suit jacket and long sleeve shirt. Rooney rings the doorbell several times in the scene. One close-up of a doorbell ring shows a man's very hairy arm ringing the doorbell, certainly not Rooney's arm as he's wearing a suit jacket and long sleeve shirt. See more »

We can't come to the phone right now. We've had a... death in the family.
Grace, Ferris Bueller is behind this. There is no doubt in my mind, and now, he's got Sloane Peterson involved in this thing.
Her grandmother, too.

I have an ongoing discussion with my friends and family about what movie defines your generation, and for me, this is it! Ferris' commentary throughout the movie is hilarious and irreverent, giving a voice to those on the borderline between Generations X and Y. It's Office Space, the teenage years! This movie is witty and fast-paced, not relying on the bathroom humor and physical comedy that most teenage and college comedies do these days. Yes it is dated, but that's part of what makes it great. I love it!
