Back to the Future Part II

Trivia: When the 2015 Marty Jr. is walking across the street and a car stops, almost hitting him, he bangs both hands on the hood and yells, "Hey! I'm walkin' here!"I'm walkin' here!" This is an exact recreation of Dustin Hoffman's scene in 'Midnight Cowboy'.

Trivia: The guy who asks Marty for a donation in order to save the clock tower is Terry, the mechanic who fixes Biff's car in 1955.


Trivia: After Marty and Doc arrive in 2015, Marty sees a news alert that the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. On the real October 21, 2015 - the date at which Doc and Marty arrive in the film - the Cubs were eliminated from the playoffs after getting swept in the NLCS by the New York Mets, but won the World Series a year later.

Trivia: In the newspaper, it says the Cubs sweep in 5. This means the World Series in the future now plays best of 9 instead of 7.


Trivia: The tag line for Jaws 19 is "This time it's REALLY, REALLY personal."


Trivia: The 2002 DVD release of both this film and of Part III is very misframed, with many elements cropped out of frame or not centered properly. The most obvious example is when Doc demonstrates the adjusting sleeves on Marty's 2015 jacket (the sleeves are cropped out of the frame so that you can't see the effect), but nearly the entire movie is misframed. The disks were later reissued with corrected framing, and all later DVD and Blu-ray editions have correct framing.

Question: What song does Marty play on his guitar in 2015 after he gets fired?

Answer: He is attempting to play the song "The Power Of Love" by Huey Lewis and The News. He was first seen playing it very well in the first Back To The Future movie when he was trying out for the school dance. Jennifer recognizes the song and is shocked that Marty who was so good at guitar was suddenly able to hardly play it.
