When Marty McFly leaves Doc Brown's garage because he is late for school, co-writer Bob Gale mentioned in a commentary that the garage was actually a flat put next to a Burger King restaurant in Burbank. As part of their agreement with Burger King, the studio wasn't given any money from the restaurant for their cameo, but Burger King did allow the crew to film their scenes for free and allowed them to park there.

This will probably be the shortest review I ever write. And that is only because this movie is so great I want to give away as little as possible.
It first off has a terrific and memorable score. It also is very funny; humor is well-placed, witty, enjoyable, and appropriate. This movie doesn't fall into large plot holes such as other time travel films, and has a terrific end. The actors are all awesome; all parts are well-acted.
Special effects are pretty good for the era as well. The story is engaging and actually makes sense(some time-travel films make absolutely no sense). It's a great start of Robert Zemeckis' career, and I love it.
Great Scott, a great film! 10/10 classic.
