Trivia

Bob Gale had the Chicago Cubs winning the 2015 World Series as a joke, due to him being a St. Louis Cardinals fan. While he did correctly predict Miami having a Major League Baseball team by 2015, the Cubs wound up getting swept by the New York Mets in the 2015 NLCS 4 games to 0. See more »

Goofs

As young Biff is chasing Marty through the tunnel after Marty gets the almanac back, Marty pushes off with his right foot with his left foot on the back of the board (riding goofy). Later, as an upper body shot of him is shown, Marty is facing the other direction, with his left foot on the front of the board (riding regular). See more »

Part 2-The Cubs won the World Series?!
1 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I'm one lucky girl, I rented all three Back to the Future films, so I could watch them all in a row, I didn't have to wait year after year, well I was kinda born in 1985, so it's all good. But anyways, I just saw the Back to the Future trilogy tonite and after it seeming like I was the only person who didn't see these movies, I did it! Part two was a very good sequel, while it isn't quite up to par with the first Back to the Future, it was cool, it was kinda like Deja Vu with a different story that worked.

Marty and Jennifer start off where the first left off, Doc takes them to the year 2015(which is funny that it is only 8 years away), and Doc tells Marty to fix a situation with his future son. Biff overhears an idea later brought up to Doc about possibly giving himself tips to win big money for the future as soon as they go back, but Doc talks him out of it, but Biff has different plans and takes the book and the De Lauren and goes back to 1955 and makes himself the richest man alive in 1985, so Marty and The Doc must go back and alter the future back to it's old ways.

Part two is definitely worth a look for those Back to the Future fans, not to mention, it's just good to see where these stories go. Like I said, it's not as good as the first, but it is a good movie and actually a little better than a 7.1, if you ask me. But that's just me, so just give this movie a chance, you just might find yourself enjoying it.

9/10
