I saw it just the once. Thought it was okay but certainly not one of the best. My everlasting memory of it was, and still is to this day, being envious of the glazed car lounge (you couldn't call it a garage!).
If money were no object that would be how I would house a collection of cars, motorbikes, and motoring ephemera. The only difference would be that I'd still need a sizeable garage / workshop alongside it to work on further restorations.
Sorry but I can't add any more comment about the film.
I'm going to say this once and once only Gene: Stay out of Camberwick Green!

I haven't seen this film either, but I know it was produced and directed by John Huges. John created some wonderfully entertaining films such as Planes Trains and Automobiles, Uncle Buck, Christmas Vacation, The Home Alone films and many more.
He sadly died at the relatively young age of fifty nine. I wish there were more films like his these days.
I’ve seen Weird Science, mainly memorable for Kelly LeBrock. I just had a look at bits of Ferris Buellers Day Off on You Tube, never having seen it, and I wouldn’t say it was my bag, 80s American stuff generally isn’t. I vaguely remember another of the John Hughes films, I think it was Some kind of Wonderful, which was watchable. Lea Thompson from Back to the Future was in it. That film was an exception, it was 80s, American but I actually liked it, Michael J Fox was very good in it. One bit of trivia is that Biff, the bully in the trilogy, was based on Donald Trump
