The films of the 1980s were ripe with electric guitars, new wave style and heavy-handed moralizing. Lessons were learned, obstacles surmounted, montages cut and forced upon audiences with reckless abandon. We laughed, we loved and most importantly, we learned.

John Hughes' iconic Ferris Bueller's Day Off turns 30 Saturday. The film, which has become a beloved totem of teenage rebellion and a wonderful 1980s time capsule, is also an ode to Chicago – a teenage Hughes moved around the city's suburbs with his family.

Charlie Sheen is reprising the role that made him a household name!
No, not that one. (Not yet, anyway.)
PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that Sheen, 49, will be paying homage to his "Boy in the Police Station" character from the 1986 classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off in an upcoming episode of ABC's The Goldbergs.
Sheen is reprising the role nearly 30 years after the leather-jacketed bad boy was told by Bueller's sister, Jeanie (Jennifer Grey), to "blow [himself]".

Did you make any million-dollar purchases recently? Well, go ahead and kick yourself if you did, because for more or less that same amount, you could've had Cameron Frye's super cool glass house from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Honda's Ferris Bueller's Day Off-inspired Super Bowl ad was an Internet sensation – but the commercial's star Matthew Broderick didn't initially jump at the chance to reinvent his classic '80s film.
"It took a little, uh, thinking about it," Broderick, 49, told New York's Vulture blog. "It took a little time."
But eventually, the actor said he "ended up thinking it might be amusing."
Part of the decision came from knowing that The Hangover's Todd Phillips – whom Broderick calls "a good director" – was in charge of the two and a half-minute skit, which contains more than 24 references to the original movie.

Twenty-six years later, it's time for Ferris Bueller to take another day off.
In what's quickly becoming the most talked-out Super Bowl commercial of the year – a week before it even airs – Matthew Broderick will bring back his old Ferris Bueller character in a new ad for Honda this Sunday night during the NBC telecast.
Auto blog Jalopnik revealed the source of a teaser ad last Friday. So, Honda decided to release the extended version of the commercial online on Monday – and it's a two-minute-plus homage to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the original 1986 film, with Broderick this time calling in sick to a film shoot and enjoying another day of slacking instead.
