"Life moves pretty fast," as a famous teenage philosopher once said, and before you know it, a quarter-century has gone by. It's hard to believe it's been 25 years since the release of 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' (on June 11, 1986).

Though dated in some ways (there's a lot that clearly marks it as a product of the '80s), the movie feels as fresh as ever, thanks to the eternal exuberance of Matthew Broderick in the title role and the ability to accurately evoke timeless teenage concerns that was writer/director John Hughes' trademark.

And time certainly hasn't diminished the movie's impact, which continues to be felt to this day. Here are some of the ways 'Ferris Bueller' has influenced pop culture -- not just movies, but also TV, music and beyond.
