Fans Disappointed As 'Back To The Future II' Turns Out To Be Work Of Fiction

Film fans have expressed their disappointment at the realisation that the movie 'Back To The Future II' is a work of fiction and not, in fact, a documentary.

"I thought it was an accurate portrayal of life in 2015," one told HuffPost UK Comedy. "Now that we've actually reached that year, I see that it was, in fact, made up."

"I was totally convinced that it was a documentary," said another. "I now realise it was just a zany time-travel movie.

"This means I'll have to re-evaluate serious documentary filmmaker Robert Zemeckis's other works, like 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit."

Many movie-watchers are now comparing the film unfavourably to the follow-up documentary 'Back To The Future III', which accurately portrayed life in 1885, including the use of horses and carriages.

Other fans, however, remain in denial about 'Back To The Future II''s genre. "I refuse to believe it wasn't a non-fictional record of life in 2015," said one film buff. "There is still time for people to produce and mass market hoverboards, flying cars and self-drying jackets. In fact, we've got until 21 October."
