    It's not very big, is it? Wasn't that used as the "garage" for the Ferrari in which they went joyriding, and then it plunged through the glass wall into the ravine?

    It's all relative, I guess.
    At 5,300 sq ft, it's twice as big as my place.

    But 3/4 acre is NOT enough for a glass house.
    The neighbors would still be able to read the name on the waistband of your undies from that distance.

    I like it, but I think I'd want more bang for my buck.

    The Fight Club Theory of Ferris Bueller's Day off

    Peter Sciretta of SlashFilmMy favorite thought-piece about Ferris Bueller is the “Fight Club” theory, in which Ferris Bueller, the person, is just a figment of Cameron’s imagination, like Tyler Durden, and Sloane is the girl Cameron secretly loves.

    One day while he’s lying sick in bed, Cameron lets “Ferris” steal his father’s car and take the day off, and as Cameron wanders around the city, all of his interactions with Ferris and Sloane, and all the impossible hijinks, are all just played out in his head. This is part of the reason why the “three” characters can see so much of Chicago in less than one day — Cameron is alone, just imagining it all.

    It isn’t until he destroys the front of the car in a fugue state does he finally get a grip and decide to confront his father, after which he imagines a final, impossible escape for Ferris and a storybook happy ending for Sloane (”He’s gonna marry me!”), the girl that Cameron knows he can never have.
