Argentina's Garbarino electronics chain managed to travel back in time and convince Christopher Lloyd to appear as Doc Brown piling out of a glowing DeLorean. Who wouldn't enjoy "Back to the Future IV?"
High-concept weddings are lame. But every would-be Han Solo and Princess Leia, Mrs. and Mrs. Smith and, er, John and Abigail Adams should take a lesson from how one couple worked the Back to the Future DeLorean into their proceedings. (Thanks and Mazel Tov to James the Groom for the tip.)
