How could anyone think that turning Bad Teacher into a TV show was a good idea?
Not every movie is worth adapting into a TV series.
TNT's Snowpiercer is more than enough proof that even the best movies don't always translate well to the smaller screen. But while most movie-to-TV spin-offs feel like blatant cash crabs, every now and then you come across a real head-scratcher.

Hey, is that Ferris Bueller? How come he doesn't look like Matthew Broderick? Well, silly, that's because this isn't your mommy's Ferris Bueller and that Ferris Bueller is some guy named Charlie Schlatter.

Indeed, before becoming a definitive '90s icon on Friends, Jennifer Aniston starred as Jeannie Bueller in a Ferris Bueller spin-off that nobody watched.
