Cheesy
3 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was plain sad. This 25-minute long waste of time had virtually nothing to offer save for a few deleted scenes (more of which you can view on the BTTF trilogy DVD box set anyway) and some behind-the-scenes shots and quick interviews... all that takes up maybe 7 minutes max, and the rest is pathetically and annoyingly stretched out with spacefiller that includes dozens of clips from the three movies and the irritating teen host who reads and answers some of the most ridiculous letters "sent in" by fans (yaha, right)...

One of the questions reads "I haven't seen BTTF part 3 yet, but someone spilled the beans that Doc Brown falls in love! What kind of woman does it take to win Doc's heart?" And then, of course there's a load of clips and maybe 15 seconds worth of commentary from Mary Steenburgen, and bingo, another letter answered, another 8 minutes successfully filled up. If I was the host, I'd flip off whoever "wrote" the question and tell them to watch the damn trilogy and find out for themselves so that they don't have to ask such ridiculous questions.
