Continuity mistake: When Marty chases after Biff on the borrowed 'skateboard', Marty is wearing a dark grey belt and a red/blue print shirt under his red/beige jacket. However, when Marty is hanging on to the front of Biff's car as they turn a corner (and in another shot), Marty (stunt double) is wearing a light brown belt and solid tan shirt. (01:07:00)
Marty successfully sets up his parents and saves his future. Marty's dad triumphs over Biff and becomes popular. Doc is able to return Marty to the future using the lightning that hits the clock tower. At Twin Pines Mall, Doc wears a bulletproof vest to protect himself from the Libyans. In the present day, Marty's dad is a famous writer and Biff works for him, waxing his car. Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer are reuniting when Doc arrives in the time machine. He tells them that they must go 30 years into the future. The car flies up into the air and off into the future. To be continued...
Trivia: Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty. After filming quite a few scenes they realised his acting style was too dramatic for the humor desired, so they cast Michael J Fox (who they couldn't originally get because he was busy with the TV show Family Ties). Filming was on weekends and nights around his TV schedule and using his double at other times.
