I know by reading some of my reviews I sound like some stuffy person who doesn't like any fluffy comedies or unintelligent humor, but that's not always the case.
Yes, there are good fluffy comedies that promise a really fun watch. I can't even count how many times I've seen this movie, but somehow it never gets old. I've always had a huge fascination with the idea of time travel why else would I love 'Back to the Future' so much? Not to mention that Bill and Ted's mispronunciation of the historical figures' names "So-crates!

Did I mention that Rufus is totally awesome? Well go ahead and kick me in the face! Talk about a childhood classic! Bill and Ted first surfaced when I was nine years old. Those were the days I don't know how many times my best friend and I watched this one, but it must have been every day during our third grade year. I've watched it countless times after that and it has yet to lose its charm. When Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey came out a couple of years later, the process repeated itself. These are two movies about a couple of seemingly burn-out teens who don't take drugs, which leads one to the conclusion that they were just born idiots.
Thing is, just by being stupid, everything seems to happen right for them wherever they go, thanks to good ole Rufus George "the king" Carlan. Excellent Adventure starts with our idiot duo, doing what they do; jamming out in the garage on guitars they can't play and talking nonstop about how someday, somehow, their band "Wyld Stalyns" will open for Iron Maiden. When their dream is threatened by the reality that they are flunking out in history, things take a turn. What it all boils down to is that they need to have a badass history report or they're both going to flunk out and Ted will be sent to military school by his mean, police officer dad.
This is where Rufus comes in. He shows up in a time machine in the form of a phone booth and claims to have all the answers to their problems. The time machine is just what they need for their history report so it's "back in time we go", to capture historically significant figures Socrates, Napolean, Billy the Kid, Joan of Arc, Abe Lincoln, etc. The fun never stops. I'm really not sure why this movie works as well as it does. It takes an idea that would sound completely stupid on paper, and somehow, makes it all come together.

The characters are completely likeable and the script is sharply written. Best of all, this movie is just good fun. The music is awesome too. If you have never seen this movie or its sequel, you are seriously depraved. Go put on your old Megadeth t-shirt, ragged out jeans, and a few beers, plop down on the couch and enjoy.
Probably one of the most intelligently written screenplays of alltime.
Klickberg 19 November Any idiot can sit down and spend four or seven years of his life writing out his "masterpiece. Like "Real Genius," this film utilizes ideas from both the highest form of screenwriting while still delving into the lowest common denominator, somehow doing both at the same time.
For instance, to perfectly grasp the concept of Bill and Ted's "lingo," one would truly have to stoop to the lowest rung of the intelligence level. But, with such ingenius ideas as having Bill and Ted meet each other in the beginning of the film, then later finding themselves, allowing the audience to gain insight on what happened in the past is just a stroke of cinematic brilliance. And the running gag about "when the Mongols conquered China" was one of the many cherries on the cake.
Even some of the background comments after being told he's "too tall, man" making the phone booth even more crowded, Lincoln responds: "That's how I'm built.

If only production companies and filmmakers would take a chance on something as original as a time travelling phone booth carrying two idiots on the course to better the future, the public could finally go back to watching movies in theaters again. LebowskiT 27 August This is just an all around FUN movie! The plot is far from anything serious, but deep down there are some good morals and such things to take from this film. The comedy in this film is just superb! I've seen this movie more times than I can count with my fingers and every time it gets even better!
There are so many lines in this film that you just can't help but repeat, because they're just so funny and well done! There are a number of times that I find myself just cracking up at the scene, situation, or what have you. If you don't laugh at least a little during the course of this film, then I think you've got some problems.
The acting is great. Everybody knocks Keanu Reeves for his acting, but I think he's great. And he does a great job in this film. Alex Winter also plays a great part. The rest of the cast is great too. Not only is the comedy and the acting great, but there are some REALLY good science fiction sort of idea's in this film.

The scene where Bill and Ted meet the future Bill and Ted is just amazingly well done, and such a cool idea. I love that you first see the scene from the perspective of one set of Bill and Ted's, and then later the Bill and Ted that the story follows becomes the other set of Bill and Ted's. Did that make sense? Well, anyway, see the movie and you'll know what I'm talking about. There were a few other really good scenes and ideas throughout the film.

All in all, I would definitely recommend seeing this film, it's not a complex story by any means, and just a whole lot of fun. Try not to take the film too seriously and you'll hopefully enjoy it. I truly hope that you enjoy this film. Thanks for reading, -Chris. I didn't come of age in the '80s, so I missed the era when people mindlessly called each other "dude" and said "totally" a lot.
Little do they know that the fate of the universe in years will depend on whether or not they ace their history report. No worries! Needless to say, these historical figures are a little befuddled when they arrive in San Dimas, and the people in San Dimas are befuddled by them. Mostly, the movie is an excuse to have Bill and Ted be the dopey dudes that they are.
Whether it's Ted saying that Joan of Arc was Noah's wife which, it turns out, some people actually believe , or the two boys getting slinky with some medieval princesses, the movie's got something for everyone. If you ask me, they should have also picked up Mahatma Gandhi and Alfred Hitchcock. One more thing: Stephen Herek scored a personal triumph with this movie, as he did with "Critters" and "Mr. Holland's Opus". The best time travel movie ever made?
