U2 in Ferris Bueller

So I was watcing Ferris Bueller, and right at 33 minutes and 40 seconds into the movie, I'm smiling and I can't stop.
After Ferris and Cameron pick up Sloan from school, Ed Rooney (the principal) goes back into his office and makes a phone call to Sloan's house, and then makes a phone call to the "mortuary" to try to catch Ferris, and you see a nicely framed U2 poster for Boy on the wall right behind the answering machine! hahhhah yay!! i've watched this movie so many times, but I've only noticed that now!
those of you who have the dvd should go watch it right now! =) 33:40!

Talkin 'bout u2 poster in 80s comedy movies , there's another , can't remember the name of the movie , you know that one that a girl pretends to be a guy , coz she write a good article but they didn't take it coz she was a girl , she has that brother that is crazy about sex and all , in the end of the movie she shows her breasts , to a guy She ended up falling in love , in a party . Well in the girl's brother bedroom which is filled up with Playboy posters , there's a U2 War era poster.

Cameron also has a framed New Year's Day single cover poster on his wall.

You can see this when Ferris calls him and before the "Lump of Coal" line.

Ferris Bueller you're my hero.

In "The Last American Virgin" they actually played "I Will Follow". It seemed strange in the context of the movie, but I appreciated it.

Not sure how many have seen it, but the Pop album can be seen in the movie "A Night at the Roxbury."

Just before the scene where Will Ferrell's character is about to put the Twizzler into Chris Kattan's character's nose, look just above on the dresser. As the camera is panning over the bed.

There's also a huge R&H era poster (I believe) on the back of a girl's bedroom door in "King Ralph" - a silly movie starring John Goodman.
