A new take on Ferris Bueller

    Trippy... really trippy.
    Okay, so here it goes: Dude suggests that Ferris doesn't exist. He's actually Cameron's Tyler Durden. Poor, embattled, retentive Cameron imagines his best friend, who takes him through an incredible "day off" with the chick he secretly longs for.

    I think it's time for me to watch FBDO again and look for more clues. :p

    Interesting take, but if there's no Ferris, who would they save? And how would Ed Rooney know who's winning the Cubs' game?

    The explanation says it's all a dream, not that he actually did all those things. I think.

    I love it! As a big fan of both movies, this is fantastic!

    I always got the impression that Cameron was sexually abused by his dad. Maybe that's just me.

    I thought he was abused, beaten and battered

    That's one thing I never liked about the movie. There was some deep, dark shit there--maybe not Cameron's Got A Gun deep and dark, but deep and dark nonetheless--and it was glossed over in about 37 seconds at the end when Cameron decided he'd take responsibility for the dead luxury car.

    Every time I see the movie, I expect this will be the time the end credits include the following: "P.S. Cameron's dad killed him."

    Similar to the Calvin and Hobbes/Fight Club theory: http://metaphilm.com/philm.php?id=29_0_2_0
