Do You Have A Kiss For Daddy?
Happy birthday to Mia Sara, born this day in 1967.
The Missus and I have had a long-standing debate about Mia's character Sloane Peterson from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The Missus maintains that nobody really dressed or wore their hair that way in 1986, and therefore that FBDO, while otherwise an excellent snapshot of affluent suburban life in the midst of the Reagan Years, is flawed. I maintain that I don't really care.
I think the LMC and Gary would agree with me that we need to score Mia as a Flash-In-The-Pan 80's Babe. Apart from Bueller, I've never even heard of most of the rest of the work she's done. And the top-heavy cable movies and miniseries entries on her resume are always a red flag.Posted by Robert at June 19, 2007 02:39 PM | TrackBack
