“My name is Darth Vader… I am an extraterrestrial from the planet Vulcan!!!”
What can one say about the timeless 80’s time-traveling comedy that hasn’t already been said? Old Man builds time machine. Old Man enrages Libyans. Libyans kill Old Man. Boy escapes in time machine. Boy almost destroys universe. Younger Old Man fixes Time Machine. Boy makes out with mother. Boy inspires Father. Boy kinda puts space-time continuum back together. Boy goes “back to the future.” New-Present is awesome and Father wrote a novel about it. Whoops... And old-younger-old man cheated at time and didn’t die.
“You mean you’re gonna touch her on her…”
