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

It's big, cartoonish and empty, with an interesting premise that is underdeveloped and overproduced.

A great mix of fantasy, humor and drama, with a light tone but not in a ridiculous way and with well built characters you can identify with. [Full review in Spanish]

Undeniably one of the greatest films of the 1980s and indeed, of all time, Back to the Future has endured so well because it walks that fine tightrope of managing to appeal to just about everyone...
