Back to the Future Part II

Audio problem: When old and young Biff listen to the end of the football game in the car, as the two are talking back and forth about how old Biff knew what the results would be, the sound of the announcer on the radio lowers and then suddenly disappears altogether... yet neither of them physically turn the radio down or off. The two are shown the whole time talking to each other and both their hands are away from the radio.

Audio problem: When Doc and Marty return to the year 1955, you hear the squealing sound of tyres braking heavily, but the DeLorean is flying. (01:02:25)

Audio problem: After Doc and Marty return to 1955 in an effort to steal the almanac back from Biff, they land the DeLorean. Doc says, "Here's some binoculars" then says "and" but watch his lips as he says "and", it just doesn't match. You could argue that it is a bad angle but even at the angle it's at, you get an OK view. (01:03:05)

Audio problem: As Marty and the sales guy are watching the sports flash thing, Marty makes a comment about the Cubs winning against Miami, and when the sales guy says, "Yeah really something isn't it? Who woulda thought," his lips don't match what he says.

Audio problem: When Marty is watching himself talk to Lorraine after playing Johnny B. Goode, you can see and hear Lorraine, "I hope you don't mind but George asked me if he could take me home" but watch her lips and listen. It's way out of sync.

Audio problem: When Marty follows Biff into the dance hall trying to get the sports almanac, right after he uses his binoculars he exits the dance hall. If you listen carefully to the music, the music plays uninterrupted, when given the jump in scene it should skip to a further point in the song.

Continuity mistake: Notice Marty's hair in the scene when he's playing "Johnny B. Goode." It's quite larger than when he says, some seconds later, "I guess that you're not ready for it yet." That's because when he says that, it's a recycled shot from the original BTTF, whereas most shots showing he's playing the guitar are newly made for BTTF2. However, Marty's hair is considerably longer in the new shots.

Biff: Look, Lorraine, you walk out that door and I won't only cut off you, I'll cut off your kids.
Lorraine: You wouldn't!?
Biff: Oh, wouldn't I? First your daughter, Linda. I'll cancel all her credit cards. She can settle her debts with the bank all by herself. Your idiot son, Dave. I'll get his probation revoked. And as for Marty. Well, maybe you liked to have all three of your kids behind bars just like your brother Joey. One big happy jailbird family.

More trivia for Back to the Future Part II

Question: Has anyone an idea about what kind of car is this one which almost hits Marty McFly Jr. as he runs out from Cafe 80's? For me it looks like Renault or Mazda, but I'm not sure, though I I can swear it must be some future descendant of the really existing nowadays car. Does anyone recognize any other familiar car in future vehicles? :).

Answer: I was able to recognize the red one that almost hit him. It is a late 1980's Ford Probe. There is also a jeep that flies down that Marty grabs a hold of.
