June 11 is the 25th anniversary of the iconic '80s masterpiece 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off.' Every bit as enjoyable to watch today as in 1986, the John Hughes and Matthew Broderick collaboration deserves proper tribute. Since the film is such an original, Moviefone decided to come up with a unique list to honor it: how the best teen computer hackers in movies came about.

There are plenty of great hackers in movies. Everyone from Seth Green as Lyle in 'The Italian Job' to Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus in 'The Matrix' and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' are great characters, but they're all adults. The teen hacker is an odd thing, and when done correctly they're incredibly fun to watch.
