Ugh. Another old movie weekend

Remember when we told you the staff made us watch all 5 Planet of the Apes movies? Well, they are at it again. This weekend, between inane Olympic sports (badminton, handball?), they left us with John Hughes movies "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Sixteen Candles."
- "Bueller? Bueller?" We loved that part. It's like when the staffers stand in the yard and call us and we don't want to come.
The limo was cool, and we'd like to have ridden in it. Alas, it's junk now.
- We applaud the canine actor hired to chase Rooney. Lots of good teeth-baring and foaming at the mouth. We thought it was effective.
- As for "Sixteen Candles," there were some nice details, but at least one part left us doubting the validity of the entire plot line. We're pretty sure Molly Ringwald wouldn't have worn red-and-white polka dot underwear. That really didn't add up for us at all. And we're really sure she wouldn't have given it to a geek. Nice touch, but just not believable. We've nosed through enough laundry baskets to know what types of undies fit various folks, and that just doesn't add up.
Bueller?
