Back to the Future Review: Huge 1980s hit movie. In Back to the Future, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox in his breakthrough role) has a miserable life. His father is a wimp, his mother an alcoholic and they live in a rundown area. His only friend is a crazy scientist (Christopher Lloyd). Lloyd turns a DeLorean into a time machine and Fox accidentally ends up in 1955. He also accidentally fumbles his parents first meeting-so his mom is falling for him! He has to get his parents together or he won’t exist. And how is he going to get back to 1985?
Sounds silly but this actually is a lot of fun. The direction of Back to the Future is good and the script is fast and very funny – loved Lloyd’s reaction to Reagan being president and Fox dealing with 1950s life. Also the 1950s outfits and cars are incredible. The acting is good. Fox and Lloyd are both great and play off each other very well-some of Fox’s dead pan expressions to Lloyds ravings are quite funny. And Fox is so young! Lea Thompson was excellent playing Fox’s mother-she convincingly ages herself and looks like a teenager. Crispin Glover overdoes it though as Fox’s father-too over the top. Also great to see Frances Lee McCain playing Thompson’s mother-this woman is a great actress and played mothers through many great 1980s film. Also Billy Zane appears as a bully-but has no dialogue.
Only two things spoil this a little. The open ending and the constant product placement-I know a lot of movies do it but here it was virtually nonstop! When it starts calling attention to itself that’s a problem. Also Huey Lewis and the News had a big hit with the opening song “The Power of Love”. And don’t miss Lewis’ cute cameo as a teacher at the beginning. Overall, Back to the Future is a great film.
