** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally]], Eric Stoltz was cast as Marty, while Creator/JeffGoldblum was considered for the role of Doc Brown in the first film. In the following year, Goldblum had an iconic eccentric scientist role of his own named Seth Brundle in ''Film/TheFly1986'', which spawn a sequel ''Film/TheFlyII'' which starred Stoltz as Seth's son Martin Brundle.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotPlot: Several things that happen in this movie can be chalked up to foolish decisions by panicky individuals.
** When Doc sees the terrorists approaching, his first inclination is to fight back with an old pistol, instead of grabbing the plutonium, jumping into the [=DeLorean=] with Marty and Einie, and time travelling to somewhere in the immediate past or future.
** Marty freaks out George by impulsively staring at him and then following him, instead of simply seeking out 1955!Doc and getting the whole mess straightened out.
** Marty has ''just'' heard his parents' story of how they first met (he maybe heard it about five or six hours beforehand if you go by his own personal timeline), yet he deliberately interferes when he sees Sam Baines' car bearing down on George.
** Then there's the plot about making George seem heroic, which was extremely misguided on Marty's part. Why not just start an arguement with Lorraine, or insult her or something? Why go with forcing yourself on her?
** Thankfully averted by Doc, who changes his mind and decides to tape together the warning that Marty was hellbent on giving him.

* UnfortunateImplications: The entire film series can come off as sexist towards women, when you seriously think about it. Every single female character in the series has no other purpose than to serve as a SatelliteLoveInterest (e.g., Jennifer), a victim to a male character (e.g., Lorraine), or as scenery (e.g., Linda). Not a single one of them (save maybe Clara) has an active role in advancing the plot. And let's not even get started on how, in the first movie, the revised timeline involving an (attempted) ''rape'' of Lorraine left her and her husband more happy and attractive than in the original timeline, where she'd only married George out of sheer pity...
** That said, the animated series, the Telltale game, and the IDW comic book attempt to add more character development to the series' female characters, to varying degrees of success.
