Matthew Broderick Back as Ferris Bueller in Super Bowl Commercial
While there's been rumblings that a sequel to the John Hughes classic comedy Ferris Bueller's Day Off might actually get off the ground, I think we're all hoping that the film just quietly goes away. However, for those who just want a little taste of a grown up Ferris Bueller, you may want to feast your eyes on this new Super Bowl commercial for the Honda CRV featuring Matthew Broderick (kind of) reprising his role as everyone's favorite righteous dude. Directed by The Hangover helmer Todd Phillips, it puts a fun modern spin on some of the original film's more iconic moments, and works as a fun commercial. Watch!

Though the commercial works as a fun short, I have a feeling any sequel would try to replicate the film on an even bigger scale and it just wouldn't deliver what the finely tuned mind of John Hughes did back in 1986. While it would be interesting to see where the character has ended up over 20 years later, and Matthew Broderick could use a break from Broadway, I'm fine with this commercial being the only return of Ferris Bueller for now unless John Hughes happens to be hiding, awaiting a big return of his own. Agreed?
