* Marty´s performance of Johnny B. Goode inspires a number of teenagers to do the Lindy Hop (or something very close to it). At one point, the camera pans ''straight between the legs of a girl'' (underpants and all) while she is saltoing over the head of her partner.

Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Even if it's a family-friendly film, it doesn't shy away from depicting the overt racism of 1950s America. Even Biff's overt sexual harassment of Lorraine doesn't raise many eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* TheOner: The opening shot of the film (an EstablishingShot of Doc Brown's laboratory, which sets up a few plot points and {{Foreshadowing}}) goes on for several minutes. It's a quite complicated shot, requiring a lot of technical coordination, even though no actual actors appear onscreen.

* Biff and his crew, much like the Libyans, get knocked out but are still close to the heroes. The sequel builds on this for its plot.
