Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

Continuity mistake: When Cameron is on the phone with Mr. Rooney pretending to be George Peterson, Ferris calls the school. Grace picks up the phone in the outer office and tells Ferris to hold. You clearly see the third button (line three) is the one he called on. Grace says that Ferris is on line two. When Mr. Rooney puts Cameron on hold and listens to Ferris, after Ferris hangs up, the camera cuts to the phone buttons on Mr. Rooney's phone showing that Ferris was just on the second button (line two).

Suggested correction: While not likely, there is no requirement that the phones have the same lines or be in the same order, so the line assigned to the third button on Grace's phone could be the second line on Rooney's phone.

Factual error: The odometer only goes up by 10 miles between the time Cameron freaks out and when they're back in the garage, but they stop at a famous Chicago lighthouse when Cameron freaks out that actually is 1/2 hour outside the city.

Suggested correction: They took a detour to think at the lighthouse disregarding the distance, since at this point 30 extra miles isn't going to show against the damage already done.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ferris, Sloan, and Cameron pick up the Ferrari at the parking garage you can see the camera and its reflection in the window directly behind Ferris and Cameron.

Trivia: Throughout the movie, many different characters either sing or hum the song "Danke Schoen". Ferris sings it in the shower, Mr. Rooney hums it while he is waiting at Bueller's front door, Jeanie sings it while running down the stairs after kissing Charlie Sheen, and Ferris sings it again during the parade.

More trivia for Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Answer: Cameron stares specifically at the child in the painting, because he identifies with it. He feels the lack of affection and attention from his own family (unlike the child in the painting who is enjoying time with her family, the mother is holding her hand).

Shipper

Answer: I thought he was freaking out, realizing the picture was made of thousands of tiny dots (pointillism).
