    Ferris Bueler's Day off. I've seen it 28 times now that it's been on tonight. Anyone seen it more than me, and if you have, would you admit to it?

    a thread with a title like "can you beat it?" makes it to page 2 of the board with no replies and only 20 views. i guess it goes to show that tribe message boarders don't pay much attention to newcomers.

    don't worry uncle bobby. we still love you. :)

    how much wood would a walchuck chuck if a walchuck could chuck ... er, walls.

    ps. i'm not sure whether i've seen ferris more than 28 times, but i'm pretty sure i could recite the movie word-for-word from start to finish.

    I have easily seen it more than 28 times.

    And could write the script from memory, I'm sure.

    i nearly cried the first time i saw that movie and they destroyed the ferrari. of course, i was 12 at the time. ;)

    it's probably worth being that fanatical about.

    I always call in sick when that movie plays during the work week.

    It's a must, there is no better reason to stay home, then to skip school,.. or work to hang with Ferris.

    Ferris taught me how to make the phone call.

    Ferris Bueller...wow...i haveta admit..ive seen it a million times as well. Its that damn TBS station which recycles its movies over and over again...Every freaking week its the same repetoir of movies i have seen a million times...over and over again...and dont care to see a million and ONE times. Is Rush Hour such a complex story that the movie needs to be repeated over and over again?

    Thats why City-tv rocks! Cuz they dont pull off shit like that like TBS. Bastards!

    BTW...The Godfather and The Godfather 2 will be on TNN in early march i think. Un-cut..for one full day...gotta mark that on my calender. :)

    I've easily seen it over 28 times as well. Considering I've owned 3 copies of the movie over the years, well ... you get the idea.

    ^^^ the point of my post was ... anyone, anyone ... that only 20 people bothered to even view the thread before it made it halfway down the 2nd page. probably cuz people don't bother to ... anyone, anyone ... read threads started by relatively new posters.

    (unless of course that new person posts a pretty picture in which case she will instantly become the most popular person in tbk land.)

    are you referring to anyone in particular? it sounds pretty detailed for such a vague comment.....don't worry i don't think its me, I'm not that pretty

  14. Klubmasta Will

    Klubmasta Will TRIBE Member

    I must admit that I am the only person out there who thinks this Ferris Bueller is so boring!

    nice observation will...champion of the messageboard newbies! hehe
    but keep in mind at the time of the original post, and the fact that with this new software page 2 threads would have been on page 1 with the old board. sometimes threads just get pushed off of page 1 quickly and well lots of people forget that there is more than 1 page. also i am finding that this board is too damn slow loading maybe decreasing user thread viewing. sneh...

    It's ridiculous to think about how many times I've seen RoboCop 3
    It has to be one of the worst movies ever made ... but I'm some how strangely drawn to watch it at least once a week

    I think in all the times combined, I've only seen the whole movie once. I've seen bits many, many times.
