Visible crew/equipment: In the scenes where Sloan, Cameron and Ferris are driving to Chicago for the first time in the Ferrari, there is a brief shot of the Ferrari passing a car on a bridge. Look in the bottom right hand of the screen, a perfect shadow of a person on the road. (Original VHS version, it has been taken out of the recent TV versions).

More mistakes in Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Ferris: Cameron has never been in love - at least, nobody's ever been in love with him. If things don't change for him, he's gonna marry the first girl he lays, and she's gonna treat him like shit, because she will have given him what he has built up in his mind as the end-all, be-all of human existence. She won't respect him, 'cause you can't respect somebody who kisses your ass. It just doesn't work.

More trivia for Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Question: Why does Cameron stare at the painting?

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).
