Ferris returns, but after the holidays
Save those retail gift cards you get for the holidays until Jan. 10 -- the date of the re-release of the Ferris Bueller's Day Off special "Bueller... Bueller" DVD edition. The DVD's special features will include a vignette on the cast, a "making-of" feature, a class album, stuff about Ben Stein, a "Who is Ferris" part and more. One thing that appears to be missing is the audio commentary by director John Hughes, but since you faithful 80s fans already own the previous edition of the DVD, you can still listen to it on that one. (Or just listen to our Ferris podcast.)
Strangely enough, Amazon.com gives the movie Ferris Bueller a somewhat disparaging review. "Like a soda pop left open all night, Bueller seems to have lost its effervescence over time," they write. Aww, what grinches.
