Back to the Future - After Marty is whisked back to the ‘50s by the DeLorean, which doubles as a time machine, he comes face to face with his nerdy teenage dad George and also his flirtatious mum Lorraine with whom George has yet to take on a date! But driven by an attraction she cannot understand, Lorraine decides that this new Marty kid is an absolute dreamboat, so to protect his own future existence, Marty must deflect Lorraine's adoration to poor old George.
