Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine" invented by a slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love - so he can get back to the future.Written by

This movie holds the record of staying at number one at the box office for three solid months. See more »
When Marty returns to 1985, he sees his other self (at the altered Lone Pine Mall) fleeing the terrorists and going through time just as he had earlier in the movie. Doc knew it was going to happen, and he "played dead" for two reasons; for the Libyans (obviously), but more importantly, to make sure Marty thought he was dead and would still warn him about the attack in 1955 (i.e. to prevent a time paradox). But Doc has already learned of the attack by the terrorists and prevented his death. He has, once again, sent Marty back in time, and since this is the Marty from the "alternate" 1985, there is no guarantee he will take the same actions he did before. See more »
1985 Radio Announcer:
October is inventory time, so right now, Statler Toyota is making the best deals of the year on all 1985-model Toyotas. You won't find a better car at a better price with better service anywhere in Hill Valley. That's Statler Toyota in downtown Hill Valley.

One of the last movies I went with sister to see back in 86. The film blew my mind. My friends never wanted to see this one. I was happy I went. Many year's latter, I bought "Back to the Future" at Mc Donalds for $2.99 or for some other low price with a meal. The film ages well, and I love it just the same. The director and screen writer mixes science fiction, humor, and action perfectly. A big component of the script is time line theory which drives the story. Marty has many problems to fix, and finds out more than anyone wants to know about their parents. Michael J Fox and Christopher Loyd were excellently casted. Marty and Doc what a chemistry. With the film series one see the many dualities with time travel, that become a constant with the movie. The town clock, being awoke in a strange place, and letters. Keep this in mind when watching the 2 other sequels. The theory that time repeats itself is evident. What a time machine, the Delorian adds to this movie. Worth watch over again. 10 out of 10! Thank you TBS for showing all 3 films.
