Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Hitting or Kicking?
There are really 2 parts to this slip up.
In the scene where Cameron has just gotten off the phone to Mr Rooney, Ferris kicks him on the backside.
1) They start an argument, where ferris starts off by saying "Wheres your brain?" This continues for a short time, and then Cameron says "I asked you first", when it was clear that Ferris had started it
2) In the same scene, just a short while later.. ferris says "Now i didnt hit you, I lightly slapped you" and cameron says "you hit me."
It was quite clear to me that ferris had kicked him, rather than hit him.

In the words of Edward R. Rooney, Dean of Students, "You are sorely mistaken." Go back and watch this scene again. Ferris HITS Cameron, and he drops the phone on the floor. That is what Cameron is really upset about. Ferris does not kick Cam until he bends over to pick up the phone that dropped when Ferris hit him.

This is what happens.... Cameron says "I want my daughter out in front of the school in 10 minutes, by herself. I don't want anybody...." Then, Ferris hits Cameron on his left arm. Cameron says "What?" Ferris talks and Cameron pleads for Ferris to talk to Rooney. Cameron then tells Rooney that he wants to have a few words with him and to be outside with Sloane. Then, Ferris knocks the phone out of Cameron's hand. Cameron picks it up and tells Rooney they should have lunch, then Ferris kicks Cameron. The phone is hung up, and Cameron asks "What the hell is wrong with you?" That is why Cameron says that he asked first. The real slip-up is that Cameron asks Ferris why did you kick me, then Ferris later says that he didn't hit him. Sure, kicking can be considered hitting, but kicking, slapping, and hitting went on...they should be more specific.

I just watched the movie and he never hit cameron. He hit the phone out of his hand, he didn't actually hit him anywhere.

You're all wrong. Ferris does hit Cameron. When he hits the phone out of his hand, part of his hand also hits his face.

This is NOT a slipup. When Cameron demands that Sloane is alone, Ferris is afraid that Rooney would be suspicious, and then hits Cameron. Then Cameron yells at Rooney again, this time asking that he is with Sloane. This makes Ferris even madder, and then he kicks Cameron. After Cameron hangs up, he is still mad about being hit by Ferris. Then Cameron and Ferris get into an argument about the whole phone conversation. There is no slipup here.

He hits him on the arm and then later Ferris kicks him. Also Cameron does ask first.

Don't you consider kicking a form of hitting someone?
