From the Department of Bad Ideas

Making a sequel to Ferris Bueller's Day Off is just about the worst idea I've heard in years. It becomes even worse with a plot like this one:
The movie fast-forwards Ferris' life about 20 years. In the years since high school, Ferris has turned his carefree "Life Moves Pretty Fast" motto into a motivational self-help career -- think Tony Robbins, only with a beret and sweater vest. His best friend Cameron is still at his side, managing his massive business.

But despite his phenomenal success, Ferris is a bit distracted on his 40th birthday (which, considering his massive fame, is being watched on pay-per-view TV by millions of devoted fans). He decides to take the day off, sending Cameron, his business associates and family into a frenzy.
Take a breath. Luckily, this is just a script being shopped around by "a screenwriter based in Arizona." I would say the chances of it being made are about the chances of me starring in it.

I was soooooo angry while reading your post.

But, I then finished it, and realized this isn't really happening.

And now I feel much better. :)
