Review

Oh what to highlight of this time-travelling gem? You could focus on the DeLorean that transports our hero back to 1955 where he accidentally bumps into his parents. You can squirm/laugh over the crush his future mum develops on him. Revel in Christopher Lloyd’s fantastic turn as the crazy scientist. But nothing tops Michael J Fox’s performance of Johnny B Goode. Watch that and good is exactly how you will be feeling.
