Bob Gale originally wrote a script for part 2 revolving around the 60's. It was re-written because when Robert Zemeckis returned from Who Framed Roger Rabbitt (1986) he didn't like it. See more »
Marty's Japanese boss in 2015 is called "Fujitsu-san". Fujitsu is not a real Japanese last name, but the contraction of "Fuji Tsushinki" (Fuji Telecommunications), "Fuji" being likewise the union of the first syllables of "Furukawa" and "Siemens" ("Si" is pronounced "Ji" in Japanese"). It is very unlikely that a Japanese person bears that name, which is actually a trademark. The gag is that trademarks and commercialism have gotten out of hand in the "future." See more »
'Back to the Future Part II' takes off where the first movie left. Pretty much the essence of the first one is present except this time Elisabeth Shue has been cast as Marty's girlfriend. Like the first movie, this one too is non-stop fun. The original plot once again, brilliantly revolves around the time-travelling paradox but this time the interference with the time-line has huger repercussions that are more complicated to solve. It's slightly a little more complex than the first movie but the energy and entertainment level is the same. I liked Zemeckis's version of 2015. It has that ultracool look and the futuristic gadgets and gizmos were quite amusing. The soundtrack is equally wild. The camera-work and special effects are very well done considering that the challenge was greater (e.g. showing two Michael J. Fox on the same screen). Okay, so showing the same actor share the screen with himself isn't anything new but in most movies/shows it looks poorly done which is not the case here. With most movies, the sequel tends to be a let down but 'Back to the Future Part II' is a great continuation of the first film.
