Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he'll cease to exist.

Parents need to know that Back to the Future is a family time-travel favorite that includes sequences that place the hero and his friends in physical jeopardy: an attack in which a sympathetic character is thought to be killed, a van chasing a teen on a skateboard, several episodes of bullying, and more. The violence is exaggerated and closer in tone to cartoon jeopardy than real danger, but some kids will no doubt find it tense. Several scenes show the hero's discomfort when the girl who will eventually be his mother tries to entice him with kisses and embraces; there's also a scene in which the beginnings of an assault on a high school girl are shown; she struggles/expresses fear, but intervention prevents anything else from happening. Strong language includes a couple memorable uses of "s--t," as well as "bastards," "damn," "a--hole," and a couple of racial slurs in the 1950s-set scenes. It's worth noting that this is the movie that alerted the public to the concept of product placement, with controversy arising from the near-constant visuals of Pepsi products and other brands.Click here to read the full reviewJuly 27th, 2016 · Details

One of the best films of the 1980s. This film has everything you want in a movie: action, comedy, romance, suspense and great music. It is rated PG but its definitely not for the little ones. This movie introduced me to some words that got me into trouble with my mom when I said them out loud as a kid.November 19th, 2013 · Details
I didn't like this movie because people swear alot in it and there are bullies like Biff harassing a woman. This movie is not for kids but it's one of those teen swearing movies. If you want to see a good Time traveling movie watch Meet the Robinsons instead.March 22nd, 2012 · Details
