Flick Pick: Back to the Future III

Back To The Future III
(Universal, 1990)

Filmed consecutively with part II, the concluding piece of the series. A solid film, combining western, sci-fi, and romantic comedy, and with Christopher Lloyd and his screen interest Mary Steenburgen doing most of the heavy lifting, with all the loose ends neatly tied up at the conclusion of the film. Overall, the series was nominated for five Oscars and won one, with combined production costs of $99M, and a worldwide gross of $957M. And we never get tired of seeing Tom Wilson (a darn good sport and solid stand-up comedian and painter these days) end up with a mouthful of horse dung.
