Dr. Emmett Brown takes Marty and Jennifer to the future to help their kids not to ruin their lives.
After doing that, Marty buys a sports almanac for 1950-2000, thinking it might help him in his time. Doc finds out and throws it away, but the 2015's Biff (very old now) finds it and uses the DeLorean to give the almanac to the young himself.
When Marty and Jennifer arrive back to their own time, they find it totally different - Biff is very rich, he practically owns the city, he married Marty's mom, killed his dad, and when Marty starts to ask about the almanac, he wants to kill him too.
Doc also finds out that he was imprisoned as a lunatic, so the two go back to 1955, the night of the Enchantment-Under-The-Sea party to take back the almanac.
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.
Trivia: When Doc and Marty arrive back in 1955 to stop the handover of the Almanac, there are 4 versions of the time machine in the area at that time - the one they just arrived in from the alternate 1985, the one Marty arrived in from the original 1985 in the first film, the one Biff arrived in from 2015 in the second film, and the one Doc buried in 1885 in the third film.Jon Sandys
