One of my all time favorites
Verified purchase
This my be my number one all time favorite movie ever. Back to the Future is a must see movie for all generations. I just love these older movies, They really are classics. And sharing them with the younger generation of my family not only brings back memories it creates new one with the grand kids. There are just so many great movies but the classic family ones are my all time favorites with out a doubt. I have shared them with my own kids growing up and now I am sharing them with my grand kids. I remember watching them when I was younger and I am so happy to have them on Amazon so I will not lose them, no figure prints and cleaning them and they can never break. I can watch them anywhere with the kids on my laptop with my Amazon. This is great for the vacation nights when it is time to settle down. I buy all my movies this way now, they take up no room in the house, no finding the wrong movie in the case, there are so may benefits this way. I am very happy with all the movies I have bought. from Amazon

Fun and Nostalgic Family Movie
Verified purchase
My little one (7 yo) can be very sensitive about movies. We've tried to watch several 80s classics with her and most of them scare her. After a few failed attempts at watching our childhood films with her (the nail scene in Home Alone bothers her, the bugs in Honey I Shrunk the Kids, etc) we started pre-screenign the films. After some digging we realized the Back to the Future franchise might fit the bill.

She loved the entire series! Obviously parental guidance required. Like most movies of the era there is some language and some scenes that you aren't likely to see in a modern moved with this rating. We purchased all three films because we know we'll watch them again.

Too much nudity
Verified purchase
Two naked women in a hot tub with a man, naked paintings on the wall, naked lady being looked at in a magazine with a close up, the acting sucks, super disappointed with this movie. Doesn’t even come close to comparing to the first. The first one is incredible and clean. This should be rated PG-13 because of the nudity and language. Very disappointed.

Marty McFly: "The whole thing is my fault. If I hadn't bought that damn book, none of this would have ever happened."
Verified purchase
In first run, BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II earned a third of $1 billion, worldwide. It picks up precisely where [[ASIN:B0027BW4QI the first story]] ends (with a notable change: Jennifer is now played by Miss Shue). This is both one of the finest sequels ever and a personal favorite of director Bob Zemeckis.

Here, Marty's, Doc's and Jen's trip to the year 2015 disastrously skews the past when elderly Biff Tannen steals Doc's time traveling DeLorean and goes back to 1955, where he gives a 1950-2000 Gray's Sports Almanac to his teenaged self. The younger Biff is thus able to wager on sporting events and win every time. He becomes a millionaire at age 21 and soon Hill Valley and nearly everyone's lives are changed for the worst. To put things right, Marty returns to 1955 with Doc. They must somehow get the almanac from young Biff without further altering the past, their present and the future; a seemingly impossible task.

Although not as charming as [[ASIN:B0027BW4QI the original film]], this one surpasses it in creativity and plotting. Here, actors must play multiple roles. For example, Michael J. Fox is FIVE characters: Marty at two ages, plus his teen self misidentified as Calvin Klein in 1955, and both his son and his daughter in 2015. B2TF2 has a brilliant script perfectly executed, with precise recreations of entire sequences from the 1985 blockbuster that are simply astounding.

I'm awed every time I see this one.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

Better than the 1st movie - a non stop time travel ride
Verified purchase
This movie is all over the place, but it is fantastic every year Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd go to. First they go to 2015 where cars fly ( 6 yrs away, can we do it for real?) and they save Marty McFly Jr from jail, however a Sports Almanac that Marty from 1985 bought and left behind was taken by Grandpa Griff who goes to 1955 to give to Biff from that year and makes him an evil corrupt JR Ewing type. Fox and Lloyd return to a miserable 1985, of course discover it had to do with the Sports Almanac and all the scores of the games which Biff bet and won since he knew who would win. They 2 travel back to 1955 to get the almanac back. This is where it gets incredible with scenes from the first film shot in different perspectives now including 2 Marty McFly's the one from 1955 to save his father and the one from the corrupt 1985 to get the almanac to make 1985 'normal' again. Basically it incorporates this movie into the first film, mainly at the dance where you see McFly doing his guitar bit, while the other McFly is above him getting ready to attack Biff's friends. There are plenty of Biff and Mcfly characters everywhere. Just a non stop action fest right from the opening credits. Highly recommended. If you have never seen this, don't wait another second. Superior film making in my opinion.Excellent blend of scifi,comedy,adventure and great family fun..This DVD has bonus features like commentary , interviews, deleted scenes and is an upgrade from the box set for that reason..

Awesome!
Verified purchase
Trying hard to be non-bias, because this is an ultimate classic and knowing that almost any TIME-TRAVEL movie will have flaws and/or inconsistancies, I still feel like this movie is one that MUST be seen in your lifetime. It's so fun to see "the butterfly affect" happening. I recommend seeing the trilogy about 3 times to really get the most out of it, including how we thought the future would be in the 1980's and the way things are now. In this particular "Part II", they go to OCT. 21, 2015 (side note: my birthday). Watch to see what things are simply silly and overthought. Unfortunately, some things, you just kinda have to go with it, similar to the Austin Powers movies.

Love this trilogy!!

Great but some language for younger kids
Verified purchase
I’ve always loved this movie and this Christmas I introduced my 8 & 10 year old to it. They loved it which led to watching parts 2 and 3 the following nights. They were shocked at some of the language though. I never realized how many 4 letter words were used in 80’s tv compared to today’s family movies of this sort.
