Both “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and Rodney Dangerfield’s “Back To School” came out in 1986.
Both were two of the top grossing movies of that year.
Here’s the crazy part, both films featured the main character doing a rendition of “Twist and Shout,” originally recored by the Top Notes, but made popular by a little band called The Beatles.
The fact that the song was in both movies caused it to re-enter the charts over 20 years after it was originally released!
In “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, Matthew Broderick lip synching the song during Chicago’s Van Stuben Day Parade.
In “Back to School” Rodney Dangerfield gets up and sings the song himself while at a bar.
So who did it better?
