This movie was always cringey to me. Too much of a try-hard film. Was shocked by how many of my friends liked it (and quoted lines from it all the time). It reminded me of The Wild Life movie that came out in 1984 (the spiritual sequel to Fast Times). Filled with good talent but just the dumbest story/screenplay. Great podcast. Entertaining as always. Makes me want to see it again to see if any of my feelings have changed.

You guys crack me up. Re-election campaign, Bono, Ben Gardiner’s head! That would be an awful but always recognizable Halloween mask.

Here is my question. Are we sure Kaffee didn’t con Jessup by acting all insecure and unsure right before that final scene where Jessup admits to the code red? They made such a big deal that Jessup wanted to admit it that I always thought this was their master plan as a way to reel Jessup in closer by conning him into believing he had the upper psychological edge. Great podcast! 👍

Why he told his lawyer she is a prostitute? It was obvious he had no real friends. His lawyer is really the only one he has a “close” relationship with. Even as flawed as he is. I bought it. He is socially stunted in a weird way. Isolated to a degree. Not sure he really thought he was capable of being such a evil a-hole. Totally bought it. Great pod! 👏👏

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!!
