Reviews
Mine: Fun and fresh when first out. It has suffered from over play and over imitation. Still good performances from Fox, Lloyd, and Thompson. Neither of the sequals comes even close to being as good.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A teenager of the '80s travels back in time to the '50s, where he must arrange for his mismatched parents to meet--or else he won't exist! Wonderful, wacked-out time-travel comedy takes its time to get going, but once it does, it's a lot of fun, building to a frantic climax just like other Bob Gale-Robert Zemeckis scripts (USED CARS, I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND, 1941). Lloyd is a standout as crazed scientist who sets story in motion. Huey Lewis, who sings film's hit song, ``The Power of Love,'' has cameo as a high-school teacher. Produced by Steven Spielberg and company. Followed by two sequels and an animated TV series.
