I always thought a killer sequel could have come out of this and remember reading that many scripts had been passed around. One being that Ferris is in the corporate world working for a shithead boss that is gunning for him and he basically skips out of work to take a day off with his boss on his trail. I mean we got a commercial version of it when he did the Honda commercial, I think aired during Super Bowl. Great podcast guys. Love the work.

Agree. Farley was way better than Belushi. I liked Belushi but never saw the “thing” others saw in him. Great podcast!!

listen I enjoy this podcast. Bill and company are very enjoyable and knowledgable. But they never actually watch the movie. The movie explains why they can pick up Sloan. not be a perfect explanation but it makes more sense than then his panel.
