Synopsis: Mad scientist Dr. Emmitt Brown, Doc, builds a time machine out of a DeLorean and accidentally sends his friend Marty back in time to 1955. Now Marty must make sure that his tenage parents fall in love if he has any hope in making it back to the future.
Fact: Michael J. Fox was only allowed to do this film on the condition that he fufill his obligations to his television show Family Ties. Michael averaged about 5 hours of sleep during that time and was not allowed to go on any promotional tours.
Trivia: Emmitt was named for Time spelled backwards.
Movie Mistake: When Doc backs the DeLorean out of his truck Marty's skateboard wheels change from yellow to pink.
My Take: What a great movie. This was one of those films that as a kid I could watch over and over again. It's a timeless film that is full of humor and quotes and should be watched at least once.
