Reunion at the McFlys

'Back to the Future' looks at the past

New York

Christopher Lloyd drew laughs being characteristically vague, Michael J. Fox got a standing ovation and Robert Zemeckis and Robert Gale paid tribute to their producer Steven Spielberg as Universal held a 25th anniversary party for the “Back to the Future” trilogy Oct. 25. At Guastavino’s, Gale recalled how the original pic received 40 rejections: “Every studio passed. Everyone said, ‘Time-travel movies don’t make any money.'”

Lea Thompson praised Zemeckis. “Bob gave me boobs,” she said of the falsies in part two. “I can remember Steven Spielberg dropping his keys down them.”

For Fox, “Future” is the film that “game-changed my career. It’s 25 years since and I’ll be in Bhutan in the Himalayas and I’ll hear ‘Marty McFly!’ It’s amazing.”
