It was clearly influenced by the classic teen movie ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'' -- much more so than the movie's TV adaptation; many consider ''ParkerLewisCantLose'' to be the SpiritualSuccessor to the ''Ferris Bueller'' film. ''Parker Lewis Can't Lose'' actually had ''lower'' ratings than ''Ferris Bueller'', but the Fox network was still in its early years and thus had lower expectations, allowing ''Lewis'' to outlast ''Bueller'' by two seasons.

Added DiffLines:

** Parker was also a rather sympathetic example. Many of his schemes are designed to help ''others'' (like getting Kubiak into college, or helping Mikey talk to a girl he likes). That fact that he often benefits himself is just a bonus. He also has lines he won't cross, like altering grades.
