| Lives up to the original
I agree that most of the time sequels to great movies are no good. Get to the third installment and it's become a joke. One of the lone exceptions to this rule is Back to the Future Part III. It's just a perfect movie. Entertaining, intelligent, and funny it is a hoot for fans of the first movie. Back to the Future is one franchise where all three movies are worthy of your attention.

Trivia

It is never explained why the Tannens hate, bully and antagonize the McFlys in the Back to the Future trilogy.


Quotes

Marty McFly: Doc! Doc! Doc!
Young Doc: What?
Marty McFly: Doc!
Young Doc: What?
Marty McFly: Doc!
Young Doc: Aaaah!
Marty McFly: Okay, relax, Doc, it's me! It's me, It's Marty!
Young Doc: No, it can't be! I just sent you back to the future!
Marty McFly: Oh, I know you did send me back to the future. But I'm back, I'm back *from* the future.
Young Doc: Great Ssscott!


Goofs

After Marty arrives in 1885, he eats dinner at his great-great-grandparents' house. During dinner, Maggie asks to talk to her husband privately in the other room. In that other room, wire hangers are hung on the wall behind them. Wire hangers were invented by Alfred J. Parkhouse in 1903.


Crazy Credits

The film opens with all four versions of the Universal Pictures company bumper.


Alternate 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 III is the fuel injection manifold exploding out of the car, which is supposed to be visible. Copies with a "V2" next to the copyright notice on the disc (on replacements only; in trilogy sets a "V2" is on the II disc), the 2009 single-disc reprint, and the 25th anniversary sets are OK.
