"Back to the Future" is a film that is fun, clever, hilarious, brilliant, and enjoyable. Michael J. Fox has never been better in his movie career playing 17 year old Marty McFly. Marty goes back in time to 1955 with a DeLorean that was made into a time machine by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown, played by Christopher Lloyd. He sees his parents, Lorraine, played by Lea Thompson, and George, played by Crispin Glover, as 17 year olds. Marty's mother falls for him, but he must rectify the situation by having her and his father together, in order for him and his siblings, Dave, played by Marc McClure, and Linda, played by the late Wendie Jo Sperber, to exist. Strong supporting roles include Thomas F. Wilson (as Biff Tannen, George's bully), Claudia Wells (as Jennifer Parker, Marty's girlfriend), and James Tolkan (as Mr. Strickland, a high school principal). "Back to the Future" is one of those films that has a very clever plot, plus, the screenplay is amazing and so is Robert Zemeckis' direction. It is a time-traveling masterstroke and probably the best movie of the 1980s, along with Martin Scorsese's "Raging Bull". It has two sequels that are great, as well, but the first one takes the cake as the best of the trilogy. "Back to the Future" may not be appropriate for young kids, because of the mild profanity, a few kissing scenes, and a drinking scene.
