Ferris Bueller holds up. Except for the phones.

Here’s something no one tells you when you become a parent:

The day will come when you can show your children classic movies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for the first time, and you’ll spend at least half the time watching your children watch the movie and find that just as much enjoyment in that as the movie itself.

There will also come a day when you try to explain to your son how telephones with multiple lines worked back in the day and fail miserably.

By the way, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is not the correct name for that film. Anyone who understands storytelling knows it should be titled Cameron Frye’s Awakening.

Alternately Jeanie Bueller’s Release.
