Kind of cheesy but informative...
15 September 2003 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Any fan of the "Back to the Future" series should not pass up on this documentary "making-of" short. I originally saw it as a rerun ("What's a rerun?") a few years back, but then saw it again on the "BttF" DVD collection box-set that came out last Christmas. Kirk Cameron narrates and hosts the show but it's a bit too cheesy in its presentation. It seems targeted at kids most/much of the time. Informative and a must-see for fans of the franchise, but so much more actual information could have been packed into this if they hadn't relied on cheesy intros.

3/5 stars -
