Teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) just wants to play electric guitar and date girlfriend Jennifer; he is also determined not to end up a loser in life like his own parents. Father George (Crispin Glover) is a weak-willed failure, bullied at work by his former high school tormentor Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson), while mother Lorraine (Lea Thompson) is an alcoholic. Marty's friend and mentor is the eccentric Doctor Emmet Brown (Christopher Lloyd), who has successfully invented his own time machine in the form of a plutonium-powered Delorean sports car. However, after Marty travels thirty years back in time, he discovers that he doesn't have enough fuel to return to 1985. And, after he accidentally prevents the first ever meeting between his own, teenage parents, Marty's own future birth and present existence is placed in jeopardy!

Our review

"Robert Zemeckis' time-travelling classic is a superbly scripted, hilarious movie with wonderful performances all round. It made time-travel cool, made Michael J. Fox a star and despite coming out in 1985, feels as fresh today as it did back then."
