Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

Any member of the general public who voluntarily sits through the credits of a film deserves a medal in my book, but Ferris Bueller thinks otherwise. Day Off caps with one last 4th-wall-breaking appearance from Ferris, disheveled, bewildered and wondering why the heck we’re still hanging around his house. The moment’s a bit unsettling, actually. Michael Haneke would be proud.

Adventures in Babysitting (1987)

As oddball as the evening events in Adventures in Babysitting are, they do have real world ramifications. Graydon might be a thug who doesn’t mind chasing teenagers around town, but he’s a real person and in the after-credits tag of the film, we realize he’s still stranded on the top of a skyscraper, counting down the time to his probable death. Not even a cheery rendition of The Crystals’ “Then He Kissed Me” could lift his spirits.
