Two important anniversaries took place over the weekend, and we’re not talking about Joshua Jackson turning 33 (happened on Saturday). Rather, this weekend was the 25th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the 30th anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark, both movies with substantial significance for those who lived even part of the 1980s.
You could have a fairly lengthy bar argument about the best scene in Bueller, but this has to rank up there:

Now here’s a fun game — with news that Indiana Jones is coming back a fifth time (and Harrison Ford will crack the whip), we wondered: in this age of the reboot (often discussed on Nerdist), if Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was “re-booted” next year, who would play Ferris, Cam and Sloane? Who would play Principal Rooney? And of course, would Charlie Sheen still be the druggie at the end?
We kinda think Zac Efron would get the nod for Ferris, and how about Michael Cera for Cam?
Talk it up in the comments.
