Trivia

Before sending Marty back to 1885, Doc mentions that he uses the drive-in theatre so Marty doesn't run into a tree that existed in the past. In Back to the Future (1985), one of the first things Marty does in 1955 is run into farmer Peabody's pine tree that existed in the past. See more »

Goofs

When Buford Tannen starts to hang Marty at the new courthouse, we see 'Mad Dog' whip one loop of rope around Marty's neck before he pulls the rope tight to tie it to the hook. After Marty is pulled up into the air we see a closeup of him with his fingers inserted into at least three loops of rope around his neck. See more »

A must see!
17 August 2000 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

I think this movie makes a great end for the Back To The Future trilogy. I didn't think that I would like it much because it was about the old west, but I loved it! Michael J. Fox shows off his talents again, by playing Marty McFly, and his old relative in the west. The only part I didn't like was the ending. I'd really like to find out what happens to all the characters years later. But overall, an awesome film!
