By now, Back To The Future II is in the past, and sadly, the Cubs were swept out of the National League Championships thus putting an end to that prediction. But that doesn’t mean we can’t stop having fun. Hopefully you’re also not sick of everything related to the time traveling comedy. In case you’re not, then check out the latest release from the guys who do the Honest Trailer series.

If you’ve never seen them before, the Honest Trailer is a series that takes movies and creates about three minute clips that makes fun of the movie. Some great examples of trailers they’ve made in the past are Jurassic World, World War Z, and The Happening. In the case of Back To The Future II, there isn’t much to make fun of. Instead, they’ve taken the entire trilogy and made fun of the fact that some of the content repeats itself a little too much. Check out the clip below.

The Back To The Future trilogy is great. Before watching the Honest Trailer, its hard to think about anything the movies do wrong…individually. However, after having watched the Honest Trailer, its a little hard to not think about those points. It’s all in fun though, and the Honest Trailer is very funny. Its almost like laughing at yourself. A great example is near the 40 second mark where they point out the concept for the trilogy,

“Featuring the one where they travel to the past, beat up the bully, fix the future, and set up the sequel, the one where they travel to the past, beat up the bully, fix the future, and set up the sequel, and the one where they travel to the past, beat up the bully, fix the future, and leave open the possibility for a sequel.”

Another really funny point they poke fun of is how the movie uses the cast to play their own relatives in the different eras. Did you know that Michael J. Fox played his own daughter in the future? Of course you did, but in case you didn’t know [SPOILER ALERT]. The way the Honest Trailer points this out is probably the best description,

“Journey to Hill Valley, a place where the gene pool is so shallow that everyone’s ancestor looks exactly the same as their descendants.”

The Honest Trailer does a really good job of poking fun of the Back To The Future II and the other movies. You probably have to see them to really understand how funny it is. Finally, unlike many other Honest Trailers, the biggest reason why this trailer is so funny is because of how good the Back To The Future trilogy really is. So don’t look at this is as some kind of insult, but more like them paying homage to a great movie series.
