Before the final run-up to the clock tower lightning bolt, the speedometer shown as the Delorean sputters and dies is an original Delorean speedometer with a top speed of 80 MPH. Seconds later, when the Delorean is racing toward the clock tower, the speedometer shown is different and has a top speed of 95 MPH. This allows the movie Delorean to reach 88 MPH as judged by that speedometer, although that speedometer shown does not exist on a real Delorean. The original Delorean vehicle can reach 88 MPH, but the speedometer tops out at 80 MPH and the needle would be pegged at the limit of the speedometer giving no ability to judge the speed. This is because of a 1979 traffic safety law that insured all speedometers in cars released after September of that year to top out at 85 miles per hour in an effort to encourage drivers to travel at safer speeds. The law was overturned less than two years later, but by that time Delorean had gone out of business. See more »

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.
