Time traveling was the thing in the ‘80s apparently. But there’s probably only one of these films that you know about! Back to the Future created one of the biggest movie franchises of all time. Peggy Sue Got Married kind of faded away when it came up against a behemoth like Michael J. Fox’s classic film. The big difference between the films is the intention in the past. Marty and Doc in Back to the Future try hard not change anything (but, obviously, fail a little bit!) whereas Peggy Sue (Kathleen Turner) takes advantage of her trip to the past and actively tries to change things up a bit. Box office numbers — and worldwide fandom — never lie, Marty McFly is the king of ‘80s time travel!
