Quote of the Day - In Honor of Back to the Future Month

"Jennifer spends SO much more of this movie unconscious than conscious that it really feels quite egregiously like the writers just had no idea what to do with her, and instead of being intelligent and creative with the character, simply came up with the laziest device imaginable: knock her out and ditch her repeatedly, and just simply hope that no one notices or cares how incredibly illogical, unrealistic, or troubling this is."
-Cordelia Siporin, discussing Back to the Future Part II's horrendous treatment of Jennifer (aka - Marty's future wife). 

Really, there is no excuse to under-utilize Elisabeth Shue in a manner such that her main talent in a film is "fainting."  I am not just saying that because she was my first crush, either.

Talk about this, or other stuff.
