So busy being clever that it trips over its own ingenuity.

Perhaps you're so busy being clever you've tripped over your over-sized ego, and missed the raw excitement and adventure that this movie brings to the big screen.

"Back To the Future" is an obvious classic and for you to say anything otherwise is just downright ludicrous. Seriously loosen that tight sphincter of yours and enjoy a movie that is just fun.

Another way to say what John Harti says is: This movie's so clever that it fails because it's too clever. Well put, Shakespeare. How you ever got a job writing is beyond me. Way to make a name for yourself by being the only person in the world that doesn't think this is at least a half-decent film.

I hate it when RT counts ratings not accompanied by a review. These shouldn't count whether they're positive or negative.

Yeah, I'm getting sick of that as well. Maybe this critic presented his point of view well, not that I could ever agree but still. This review made like a tree...

Too clever..wow. One of two bad reviews with..NO review lol. How ironic. I was looking forward to reading what nit picking garbage of an explanation he could have possibly used as an excuse for this ridiculous opening line.

So you're saying that its too good for itself. What have you been smoking?

I wish this had something to back it up, because from your track record, it just seems like you enjoy nitpicking at traditional favorites to garner the negative attention of my fellow commenters. Perhaps something itches below your skin when a movie is universally recognized as being something of quality. You feel the urge to put a little of your own feces in the delicious stew, souring the flavor for the rest of us. If I'm ever in the Northwest, I'll be sure to wipe my ass with a copy of the Seattle times - but only after someone else has thrown it away after reading your self-indulgent tripe.

Obviously, Mr. Harti is simply trying to be different; and in turn, has lost a lot of respect.

For most people this fantastic film seamlessly blending Sci-Fi, Time Travel, Comedy, and Action/Adventure, was just busy being entertaining. Alas, that bit of the film - circa 1 hour 56 mins of it - must have sadly escaped your attention. Shame on you.
