Corrected entry: At the end of the film Ferris introduces himself to two bikini clad woman sunbathing in their garden. The setting sun and long shadows show it is late afternoon or early evening. Ferris is wearing a heavy jacket so it is not an especially warm day, and both women are in heavy shadow! They aren't going to get much of a tan.PEDAUNT
Corrected entry: Jeanie doesn't undo her seatbelt before she jumps out of the station wagon. And additionally in one shot of the car parked - the seatbelt is slammed in the door of the car and hanging out but when they cut back to the car seconds later, the seatbelt is gone.
Corrected entry: When Jeanie is racing to beat Ferris home, a cop chases Jeanie and eventually Jeanie pulls over. Later, Mom says that Jeanie got a speeding ticket. It is unlikely that Jeanie would have gotten home before Ferris or Dad after pulling over and getting a speeding ticket(s), yet somehow Jeanie gets home first.
Corrected entry: When there is a commotion in Rooney's office and Grace is on the phone a green binder appears on Rooney's desk. It was not there before.
Corrected entry: When Ferris rings Rooney to asks if his sister can bring any work assignments home, he's speaking with a healthy, cheerful voice. Seems weird that someone as smart as Ferris completely forgets that he is meant to be sick that day, especially when he is speaking to the Dean.Gavin Jackson
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie when Ferris and Cameron are taking his dad's Ferrari out to pick up Sloan there is a very old green classic car in the background of the garage. Later in the movie when they return it is missing. It isn't very likely that sometime during the day Mr. Fry returned home from work to take it out for a drive without noticing the Ferrari which he never drives is missing.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Ferris jumps into the pool to save Cameron, you see the white chair before he jumps into the water. The chair gets knocked into the water and you can see it floating from beneath the water's surface. When Ferris drags Cameron out, you can see that the chair is gone, not floating or on land.
Corrected entry: When the Ferrari is driven through the window, it is the only window on that wall without a 4-5" high frame along the floor. Various views of the wall show the surrounding windows having it; it was most likely removed to prevent the car from being obstructed in its fall.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, the Ferrari is lifted up on a jack and is running in reverse to "take off the miles." In the next scene you see the wheel, but it is spinning so that the car would be going forward, not in reverse.
Corrected entry: When Jeannie comes downstairs to find the Principal in her house, she kicks his ass and then proceeds to call the police and tells them there is an intruder. Why didn't she recognise her own Principal? It did happen quickly when they jumped out at each other but they both paused before she kicked him. She certainly recognised him at the end of the film when they are at the back door.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when Ferris' parents come home you see their foyer by the front door loaded with get well flowers and balloons, etc. Who accepted the deliveries if no one was home all day? Rooney wasn't around long enough to have brough ALL those flowers and gifts inside. Also, as much as he despises Ferris, I'm sure he would rather see them on the front porch to wilt. The only reason he signed for the first one was because he just happened to be standing on the front porch when the deliveryman arrived.
Corrected entry: The name Shermer, which appears in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Breakfast Club, comes from Shermer Road, which is the road that runs in front of the high school where Ferris Bueller's Day Off was filmed. Another post mentioned School Drive, which runs along the side of the school.
Corrected entry: On the drive home with Jeanie, Mrs. Bueller is not wearing sunglasses when all of the papers get thrown around in the car. She is wearing them the rest of the time.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Cameron is venting his anger at the Ferrari with the jack holding up the rear drive wheels and Ferris and Sloan witness it. The camera pans down to the tachometer of the car. The tachometer shows the revolutions per minute at 0, but the engine's supposed to be running. You know it's the tachometer when a scene with the parking garage guys, they rev the engine and you can clearly see the tachometer on the left and speedometer on the right.
