    I know this is like asking if star wars would be as memorable if it didn't have lightsabers. But i was wondering if that fantastical element helps keep btf in the minds of movie goers for this long.

    I think the first one would have enough charm to still be a classic if it didn't end with the flying DeLorean oops spoiler :D. But i think that put it over the top.

    What do you think?

    Lesse, stuff I associate from Back to Back To The Future.....

    DeLorean.

    Flux Capacitor.

    'Great scott! and associated Great Scott meme. Back when memes were actually funny or used in context and not as about as racially subtle as a torch carrying nazi.''

    Biff.

    Michael J Fox performing Chuck Berry.

    'Did he just make out with his own mom?'

    Biff.

    Flying Hoverboards.

    So yeah, not really.

    Hey, for all the complaining, I wish to point out that Btf2's prediction of the Cubs winning the world series was only off by one year.

    I look at it this way. Many tv shows and movies have dealt with time travel over the years. BTF got it right. It was funny, entertaining, and it jumped all over the place.

    Damn already forgot about that. 100:1 odds wasnt it? :D

    Bill and teds excellent adventure is the only other time travel movie that i love. Well i dont love btf but i can watch btf 2 and 3 over and over. Not as much a fan of the first oddly enough.

    So, you don't like Hottub Time Machine? For shame, you don't have the right to have opinions on movies anymore. /s

    /s is shorthand for /sarcasm which means it was a deliberately stupid post.

    HTTM is a rubbish movie.

    I did not know that shorthand. Thanks.

    Back to the movie in question.

    Bill anc teds excellent adventure was actually going to use a van instead of the phone booth. However because of btf they chose a phone booth instead.
