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.

A marketer hoped to get a prominent placement for California Raisins somewhere in the film. He suggested putting a bowl of raisins on a table at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance. He had also told the California Raisins board that this would do for raisins what E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) did for Reese's Pieces. Bob Gale informed him that a bowl of raisins would photograph like a bowl of dirt. The only thing that appears in the film is Marty jumping over Red, sleeping on a bench that is advertising California Raisins. Unhappy with their product placement, the California Raisins representatives complained to the producers, and had their five thousand dollars refunded. See more »
Doc's house number in 1985 is 1646 (no street name indicated), numbers are visible on the fence. When Marty arrives in 1955 and looks for Doc's house, he pinpoints 1640 Riverside in the telephone book.
However, in the opening sequence, the camera focuses on a news print claiming "Brown Mansion Destroyed". In 1955, Doc clearly lives in a large mansion, not the one story, half garage he lives in during 1985. It is conceivable that the mansion burned down between 1955 and 1985. Besides that, if Doc lived in the same place in 1955, Marty would not have to look him up, would have have no problem finding his home, and would not be surprised by the size of it as he is shown in the film.

A funny sci-fi? Unusual but here it not only works but does so spectacularly. A whimsical but very clever time travel story that bedazzles you leaving you wanting more.
The charasmatic Michael J Fox plays a wonderful bumbling high schooler searching for love, a guitar gig and his existence which he himself threatens to erase.
Clever and humourous references litter this fun flick; references which are further improved upon in the sequels. Views of the same scenes from different angles, different perspectives and different timelines abound.
Fun for the entire family.
