** In the first draft of the script, there was a scene with a nuclear blast and a refrigerator, but Creator/StevenSpielberg demanded it to be rewritten because it made no sense. Fast forward to Spielberg's ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' and a certain infamous scene involving a refrigerator.

** In the first draft of the script, the time machine was a refrigerator and needed to go to a nuclear test site, but Creator/StevenSpielberg had this changed because he didn't want kids mimicking the scene and it was too expensive to film. Fast forward to Spielberg's ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' and a certain infamous scene involving a refrigerator.

** At the start of the movie, a newspaper clipping is visible indicating that Doc Brown's mansion from the 50's burned down and he wound up selling the land to developers. In 2008, Christopher Lloyd's home in California, which he was selling at the time, burned down in the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_Fire Tea Fire]].

* RetroactiveRecognition: Blink and you'll miss it - one of Biff's goons in the scene where they drive after Marty is played by Creator/BillyZane.



* ValuesDissonance: In the DVD commentary, it's mentioned that some European audiences were put off by how the "improved" [=McFly=] family had become more materialistic, as exemplified by Marty getting the truck seen earlier in the film.

** The fact that even after he tried to sexually assault Lorraine on the night of their first kiss, George apparently hires Biff to tend to his car thirty years onward; one would think George, Marty and ''especially'' Lorraine might take some issue with Biff being anywhere nearby after that harrowing encounter.

Not to mention, George and Lorraine once saw Biff try to murder Calvin Klein with his car while he was still a high school student.

* SophomoreSlump / StarTrekMovieCurse: Back when ''Magazine/TVGuide'' had movie ratings, they gave the first film four stars (excellent), the second film two stars (fair), and the third film three stars (good).

* SleeperHit: ''No one'' expected the movie to become as big as it did. Robert Zemeckis openly admitted he was just hoping it would break even and the final bit with the Delorean flying and "something's got to be done about your kids!" was meant as a joke on Marty having just changed the past for his parents. Michael J. Fox recalled his agent telling him that the movie was a hit and he was pleased, but the agent had to reiterate that it was a BIG hit.
