Frank believes that the women are a weaker sex and always needs to be protected by the strong and dominant male. This is a rather ironic trait of him as he is actually a she due to “his” father feeding her testosterone to make her a male. Frank kills animals and collects their heads to put on his sacrificial poles, creates mini wars between Mussels and Dead Flies and has an invention he dubs as “The Wasp Factory”.
Yes, the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off showed the realities of adolescence. The major example of this would be when Ferris tricked his mom into thinking that he was sick, so that he could stay home from school. Ferris knows how much he can push things to the limit and does just that by planning everything out even if his parents would happen to come home while he was out and about. Ferris is seen as a popular kid because when the word starts to spread that Ferris is sick and needs a kidney transplant the whole school starts gathering money for his cause. John Hugh’s does a good job of portraying people in a variety of ways.
Ferris is manipulating his parents into thinking he was sick to get the day off school. A slightly low angle was used to show that Ferris is making his parents think he is seeing them as superior to him. The background and Ferris’s mother were blurred to make Ferris the main forces of the shot. As we see Ferris tricking his parents it shows the audience that he has a bit of a rebel side and is good at manipulating adults. We see Ferris has a rebel side by the quote “they brought it”, which is what Ferris said once his

The F Word episode addresses the comedy or satire aspects of the piece and the targets of each example also how it ties the piece’s message as a whole. To begin with, the antagonist, Frank is portrayed a deadbeat, alcoholic dad who does drugs and does anything to benefit himself rather than provide for his family. Somewhat towards the beginning of the episode, Fiona, the oldest and strongest character, talks to Frank over a window as she saw that there were Hispanics in their backyard as they were sleeping there like homeless setting up their makeshift homes. She tries to figure out why they are in the backyard and Frank told her, “Generations of American melting pot getting kicked out of their homes?” In this quote, he uses verbal irony and the target is on the topic of poverty in how the government is kicking peoples’ out of their homes and the aspect of not having a home such as
Even though Frankie hated the fact the the Angel on the Seventh Step kept bringing babies, the suffering of his mother and the fact the his father is worthless, he still did all he could to make something out of nothing. He became a man a young age and wanted to make his mother proud. In the story Frank states, “ I’m a man now…” to indicate that he felt like a mane because he was going to make some coins (258). This reminds me of the story “The Rocking Horse Winner”, where the boy only wanted to please his mother who was just as weak minded as Frank’s mother. Angela, Frank’s mother is very weak minded.
Schools need to channel the minds of street smart students and turn their work into something academic. As a child, Graff talks about how he shared a hatred for books, but rather a passion for sports. Reading sports magazines was the only thing you’d catch him reading as he became hooked.

He believed because of high interest in sports, he was a typical anti-intellectual, but he came to the
