Doc Brown considers traveling to the birth of Christ, which he enters as "DEC 25 0000". There is no year between 1 B.C. and 1 A.D, and it is also believed that Christ was actually born in Spring or Summer of 6 or 4 B.C. (although Robert Zemeckis has claimed that this was meant to be a joke). Furthermore, the DeLorean would still have arrived in California in the "year 0000" with no way to get to the Middle East.

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.

"Back to the Future" is a very smart film that benefits from likeable characters and an insightful screenplay. Michael J. Fox accidently goes back to 1955 in a DeLorean that has been turned into a time machine by the wacky Christopher Lloyd. Now Fox must bring his parents together after he inadvertently changes the future. It is not quite as complicated as it sounds. The film is great fun that seems brand new 15 years later. A great movie by Robert Zemeckis. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
