What classic '80s film deserves a decades-later sequel?
Following the success of Top Gun: Maverick, I got to thinking about other classic '80s films, and what their characters might be up to. Like...
-Ferris Bueller's Day Off: I imagine Ferris and Sloane are definitely divorced, with Ferris working as an insufferable big-shot Chicago salesman (or the mayor of Chicago). Ferris is still punching way up in the romantic department — even though he thinks THEY'RE punching up — and Cameron is definitely still depressed.
-The Breakfast Club: None of them kept in touch in the 30+ years since they were in detention. Andrew manages a used car lot, Claire's in an MLM, Bender works at the last lone and dying record store, Brian's an executive at a Silicon Valley company, and Allison records true crime stories on TikTok.
-Dirty Dancing: It's a bit of a cheat, since it's set in the 60s, but 30 years later, Baby's married to a sensible doctor while regaling tales of her crazy summer to her friends, Penny is a small business owner of a successful dance school while rallying for women's rights, and Johnny's still slinging jujubes and icing his knees before performances at a favorite bachelorette party male strip club outside of Edison, NJ.
What characters do you still think about?
