Matthew Broderick Wasn’t Sure About the Ferris Bueller Superbowl Ad
First of all let me vent a little bit here, I was totally excited about the hope of a new Ferris Bueller movie. When I saw that 10-second teaser clip with Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller, I’ll admit I was over the moon. Then I saw that it was for a commercial and Bueller, Bueller, Bueller, sold out.

I’ll admit I was a little put off. I knew deep down that it was for a stupid commercial, but a part of me was hoping for the announcement that Ferris was coming back. I had dreams of Ferris taking the day off from work with Cameron and Sloan, and Jeanie married to the thug from the police station (Charlie Sheen) and hunting Ferris down. Then Honda squashed those dreams like a bug.
According to People:
Matthew Broderick didn’t initially jump at the chance to reinvent his classic ’80s film.
“It took a little, uh, thinking about it,” Broderick, 49, told New York‘s Vulture blog. “It took a little time.”
But eventually, the actor said he “ended up thinking it might be amusing.”
It was amusing, but it wasn’t what I wanted. I’m sure that Matthew and Honda don’t really care about what I want, but maybe, just maybe, this will spur talks of a movie.
