Does Ferris Bueller’s Day Off hold up 25 years later? Watch Sidecar’s follow-up video to find out

Ferris Bueller's Day Off hit cinemas 25 years ago this week, and if you were a teen-ager back then, then you loved the movie and wanted to be Ferris for a day yourself. Of course, it also means now you're old and shouldn't even be on the Internet. Get back to work.

As for the rest of us, there may be a curiosity with how well the movie plays today, not just in terms of teens in 2011, but us in 2011, and whether we agree that a privileged popular white kid from the suburbs should be able to get away with whatever he wants. This guy isn't having it. This guy is more interested in figuring out which afternoon Cubs game Ferris, Cameron and Sloane attended.

Leave it to the comedians at Sidecar to find the truth in how Ferris and Cameron would fare in 2011, in this video (which premiered over the weekend at Sketchfest NYC), "Ferris Bueller's Last Day Off."

Roll the clip!
