Barry Goldberg’s Day Off: A Tribute to John Hughes


My favorite part of “Barry Goldberg’s Day Off” was at the end when narrator Adam said, “As for me, I realized I didn’t want to be Ferris Bueller or Cameron or anyone else in the movie.  I wanted to be the guy who sat behind the camera making it.  I wanted to be John Hughes.”  This line tugged at my heartstrings because I’m a huge movie fan and can totally relate.  And the fact that the real Adam Goldberg was able to live his dream made the line extra meaningful.

I’m impressed that the casting directors were able to get Charlie Sheen to reprise his role from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”  It made the episode even more entertaining.
