Justin Long Geeks Out About 'Back To The Future'

"Back To The Future" is one of pop culture's most referenced touchstones, one everyone knows and loves — and we mean everybody, including actor Justin Long.

The 1985 comedy hit stars Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, a teen who accidentally travels back in time to 1955 in a time machine invented by a slightly mad scientist (Christopher Lloyd). During his trip back in time, Marty must make sure his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love, in order for him to get back to the present day and avoid erasing his own existence. Get More »

It's about time we put this craze to the test by hashing out the plots to ten of our (and presumably your) favorite flicks through the emoji meatgrinder, and here are the results.

'Back to the Future' in 60 Seconds, Animated

You have a quiz on the first "Back to the Future" this morning. But oh, no! You never watched the movie! You're totally screwed, man, and not just because you attend a school that thinks quizzing you on "Back to the Future" is worth your time.

What to do, what to do...

We got it! Watch this video created by 1A4 Studio and discovered by our amazing and friends at Slashfilm. It's only a minute long, and it covers pretty much everything, even if poor Marty for some reason chooses to fly through numerous glass windows to get where he's going instead of just walking there. (Time is of the essence, I guess.)

One surprising aspect of the video: There are a lot of swears. So when you end up taking that quiz, just make sure you don't include anything about Marty's propensity to drop f-bombs.

What if you were already 30 minutes late to a meeting, but you hailed a cab that got you there an hour early?
