Director Robert Zemeckis stated that the high school dance scene from 1955 had to have the same costumes because it would be shot from a different angle. The production was nearly delayed because Lorraine's (Lea Thompson) dress couldn't be found even though they had three versions of it made in 1985. Lea Thompson then revealed to Zemeckis that she still had one of the original dresses and had to drive back home to get it.
How 'bout a ride, mister?
Marty McFly: Jennifer! Oh, man, are you a sight for sore eyes; let me look at you.
Young Jennifer: Marty, you're acting like you haven't seen me in a week.
Marty McFly: I haven't.
In the opening scene in which Doc arrives at Marty's house, the time on his wristwatch is actually different from what it was in the identical scene that closes off Back to the Future (1985).
The theatrical version had a teaser for Back to the Future Part III (1990). Some later versions do not have a teaser at all, only showing "To Be Concluded", and skip to the credits. Some have "To Be Concluded" followed by "Back To The Future III". Some cable versions retain the teaser for Back To The Future Part III, but, of course, do not say "Coming Summer 1990". It was, however, added back to the film for its digital download and Blu-Ray versions.
The original 2002 DVDs for parts II and III had major framing errors when the wrong areas of the open-matte frame were transferred (known as the "framing fiasco"). This is noticeable for several minutes in each movie and usually manifests as too much sky and missing objects at the bottom. Universal had replacements ready by 2003. A sample from part II is the blinking size button on the future jacket, which is supposed to be visible. Copies with a "V2" next to the copyright notice on the disc, the 2009 single-disc reprint, and the 25th anniversary sets are OK.
