Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine" invented by a slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love - so he can get back to the future.Written by

The labels on the speedometer in the DeLorean is very inaccurate - it shows equivalent speeds of 140 km/h for a posted speed of 85 miles per hour and and 160 km/h for a posted speed of 95 miles per hour. 85 miles per hour is actually 136 km/h and 95 miles per hour is 152 km/h. See more »

October is inventory time, so right now, Statler Toyota is making the best deals of the year on all 1985-model Toyotas. You won't find a better car at a better price with better service anywhere in Hill Valley. That's Statler Toyota in downtown Hill Valley.

The character Marty McFly is credited as a performer on the song "Johnny B. Goode". It is actually sung by Mark Campbell with a guitar solo by Tim May. See more »
Digital-era home video releases of the trilogy have some different audio in places, compared to the original VHS/LaserDiscs. One notable difference in the first movie is in Doc Brown's first on-screen line, "Marty, you made it!" It was shouted on those early versions, but is more subdued and calm on DVD and Blu-ray. The original releases were the original theatrical mix, the DVD/Blu-ray features a new 5.1 remix. See more »
A young man (Michael J. Fox) is accidentally sent thirty years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd), and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence.
After almost thirty years (2014), this film loses none of its charm, and actually gains respect. The movie has had such a strong impression on everyone, whether they have seen it or not, as it completely permeated pop culture.
The script is genius, not only how it parallels 1955 and 1985 (some of the references are dynamite), but how it set the scene for the sequels (despite allegedly not intending to have any). This is just one clever gag after another, and may require repeated viewings to catch them all.
