Director Robert Zemeckis provides a pitch-perfect combination of sharp satire and warm sentiment in this ingenious time-travel comedy. Michael J. Fox plays teenager Marty McFly, whose mentor (a manic and brilliant Christopher Lloyd) invents a time machine that takes the kid back to the 1950s. When he inadvertently gets in the way of his teenage parents' relationship (and causes his future mother to develop a crush on him!), Fox has to figure out how to get them back together to insure his own eventual existence. Funny, touching and suspenseful, this love letter to American pop culture is one of the most entertaining films of the 1980s. With Crispin Glover.
Director Robert Zemeckis (BACK TO THE FUTURE), with the help of producer Steven Spielberg, made this exhilarating, groundbreaking movie blending live-action and animation, with real people and cartoon characters co-existing in 1940s Hollywood. Toon star Roger Rabbit (voiced by Charles Fleischer) goes to down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), hiring him to investigate his supposedly two-timing wife, Jessica. With Joanna Cassidy, Christopher Lloyd, Stubby Kaye. "Sheer, enchanted entertainment from the first frame to the last - a joyous, giddy, goofy celebration of the kind of fun you can have with a movie camera." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
