Does this house make you feel sad? Buy it!
Hot listing! Cameron’s house from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off can be yours for just $2.3 million. Acute anxiety, alienation, depression, insecurity, and the lack of a will to live are probably sold separately, but I love how the realtor’s listing includes this still from the movie, as if Mr. Frye’s forbidden red Ferrari comes with the place.
Oddly enough, The Onion’s Radio News Network provided a recent update on the FBDO clan: Grown-Up Ferris Bueller Charms His Way Out Of Paying Child Support. According to this absolutely accurate report, Bueller’s “late friend Cameron was murdered by his father in 1986.” So the house is a crime scene, too! Make that down payment today.
Having grown up in the Chicago ‘burbs, I always wanted to live at the Fryes’ house, partly because I could ride bikes to see my friends if I lived there, but mostly because they had a pool. It might even be in my top 3, along with Phyllis Neffler’s mansion in Troop Beverly Hills (huge pool + balance beam upstairs + Craig T. Nelson to open pickle jars) and, obviously, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Don’t click here if you don’t want to cry. Which film or TV dwelling did you always want to call home?
