Teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) just wants to play electric guitar and date girlfriend Jennifer; he is also determined not to end up a loser in life like his own parents. Father George (Crispin Glover) is a weak-willed failure, bullied at work by his former high school tormentor Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson), while mother Lorraine (Lea Thompson) is an alcoholic. Marty's friend and mentor is the eccentric Doctor Emmet Brown (Christopher Lloyd), who has successfully invented his own time machine in the form of a plutonium-powered Delorean sports car. However, after Marty travels thirty years back in time, he discovers that he doesn't have enough fuel to return to 1985. And, after he accidentally prevents the first ever meeting between his own, teenage parents, Marty's own future birth and present existence is placed in jeopardy!
Filmmaker Robert Zemeckis topped his breakaway hit Romancing the Stone with this joyous comedy with a dazzling hook: what would it be like to meet your parents in their youth? Billed as a special-effects comedy, the imaginative film (the top box-office smash of 1985) has staying power because of the heart behind Zemeckis and Bob Gale's script. High schooler Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox, during the height of his TV success) is catapulted back to the '50s where he sees his parents in their teens, and accidentally changes the history of how Mom and Dad met. Filled with the humourous ideology of the '50s, filtered through the knowledge of the '80s (actor Ronald Reagan is president, ha!), the film comes off as a Twilight Zone episode written by Preston Sturges. Filled with memorable effects and two wonderfully off-key, perfectly cast performances: Christopher Lloyd as the crazy scientist who builds the time machine (a DeLorean luxury car) and Crispin Glover as Marty's geeky dad. Followed by two sequels. --Doug Thomas

Marty McFly(Michael J Fox) is a typical teenager from small-town America who loves typical teenage things like music, girls and skateboarding. His best friend is eccentric inventor 'Doc' Emmet Brown(Christopher Lloyd) who builds a time-machine out of a sports car which inadvertently sends Marty back to 1955. Through a series of mishaps, Marty stumbles upon his teenage mother Lorraine(Lea Thompson), and father George(Crispin Glover), and accidently prevents them from meeting and falling in love. Having to put history straight and work out a way to return to his own time, Marty seeks out the 1950's version of his friend 'Doc' Brown in the hope that, between them, they can get Marty 'Back to the Future'.
Spanning not one but two sequels, 'BTTF' was a blockbuster hit on its release in 1985. The basic plot was conceived when director Robert Zemeckis was looking through his parents old school yearbook and wondered what it would be like to meet them when they were teenagers. Eventually, Steven Spielberg came on board and the rest, excuse the pun, is history.
Michael J Fox is perfectly cast as the All-American teenager dreaming of success with his band and his girl. Opposite Fox, Christopher Lloyd looks as though he is having the time of his life playing the near-insane 'Doc' Brown. The supporting cast also do a wonderful job, with Thomas F. Wilson hamming it up nicely as the almost pantomime villain, Biff Tannen. The dynamic between Fox and Lloyd is fantastic, keeping the energy needed to carry the tension of the plot, while simultaneously providing comedic and tender moments to lighten the load.Read more ›
Fastforward a few years and BTTF is shown on TV on xmas day. So i watch and record it on my parents VCR. So started a sequence of events that would shape my sister and my saturday evenings for over a year. EVER saturday night we would watch this MARVELLOUS film and never were we bored with it. There is so much to watch for in this film that much of it we missed on the first, second, third showings. Approx 2 hours of hollywood at it's best.
Micheal J Fox is amazing as Marty McFly and Robert Zemecks (of Forrest Gump fame) is excellent as director. Steven Spielberg even had an input (I think he was a producer)
What is particularly good is that this film will appeal to such a wide variety of people. It's funny, exciting, thought provoking and has given me more hours of enjoyment than any other film.
If you haven't seen it, give serious thoughts to renting or buying as you're missing out on what i can only describe as a classic
No-one needs to know the plot by now but sufficient to say that the story is one that seems as fresh and new each time you watch it. Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale have created a writing partnership that will go down in history for it's attention to detail and it's all round cleverness.
Having said that, no film is complete without a brilliant cast and Back To The Future has a team of actors that do the script complete justice. Special mentions should go to Christopher Lloyd as the wild-eyed and wind-swept 'Doc Emmett Brown' and Thomas F. Wilson who puts in a superb turn as 'Biff Tannen'.
An outstanding and unbeatable film that can never be overtaken as one of THE classics.
A must buy DVD!
It seems like films from the 80s are almost too inventive for their own good.
I don't actually think I need to review this film, because surely everyone likes, or should I say loves it!!
Cheesy number by Huey Lewis and News early on.
Being a lot older, more jaded by life and cynical now since I last watched this film, maybe I won't enjoy it.
"Well the history is gonna change."
Its funny I have now have no recollection of the entire starting sequence.
Goodness, Ive been watching Fight Club too much to enjoy this properly! :O)
When we first see Biff he reminds me of the main character in King Pin!! (The way he's dressed).
"Kids we're gonna have to eat this cake by ourselves, your Uncle Joe didn't make parole again!" I like that quote.
That's the thing skateboards aren't mainstream anymore.
"What did I tell you - 88 miles per hour!!"
I'm just not getting into it, this time around.
There's a lot of themes running through the movie.
There's certainly some weird concepts explored in this film!
"Why do you keep calling me Calvin?!"
Doc is an absolutely brilliant character!!
"I finally invent something that works!"
"Nice Saturday Night, we're sending you back to the future!"
Its a great love story.
The film obviously gets better as it goes on.
The skateboarding scene is on of the best in the movie.
I like the ongoing storyline between Fox and his dad.
In some respects its quite a basic plot, but it works.Read more ›
