Michael J. Fox rose to fame in the 80s playing Alex P. Keaton on the much loved series Family Ties. He parlayed his TV success into a string of family friendly big screen appearances.

Nothing topped ‘Back to the Future’ though. It’s a fine specimen of 1980’s pop culture.

It had everything: time travel, the bully, awkward mom/son affection (see time travel again), and of course it had Johnny Be Good, riffin’ guitar version.

And that has to go down as a a classic movie moment.

Here is that great scene played to perfection by Michael J. Fox.
