Back to the Future Part II

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.

Back to the Future Part II mistake picture

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.

Question: In the alternate 1985, there is an alternate Biff, Lorraine etc. Shouldn't there also be an alternate Marty and Doc?

Answer: Yep, and there is, but they're both elsewhere. Doc's been committed to an asylum somewhere. When Marty first meets the alternate Biff, Biff tells him that he's supposed to be in Switzerland at boarding school - that's where the alternate Marty is.

Wouldn't someone probably see Doc and report that he escaped from the asylum?

Maybe, but no way to be sure, and they're not around long enough for that to be an issue anyway.
