Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)


Keanu Reeves
Alex Winter

Directed by Stephen Herek

The movie may have been done in 1989, but this movie was so much a 90s drink that was just way too loaded with alcohol, what that means is that – this movie makes you for its run time forget all your misery and be drunk with funny unbelievable stupidity. The movie had two of the most ridiculous friends you can think of and made them just so cool and fun that it was hard not to enjoy this film.
The funny part for me seeing this film is that it stars Keanu Reeves, the Matrix guyJohn Wick when he was much younger, he acted as a goof in this movie.

I loved Bill and Ted when I was younger and saw the two seasons of the animation, which was not as exciting as this first movie was. The other thing that made this movie cool is the story, which is as bogus as they come. These two dimwits will be the ones who save the world and the only way this can happen is if they stay together. Then we have George Carlin, he is the dude who must be the one to set them on the path to international stardom.

The movie is about two High School students who were about to flunk history. What these two (Bill (Keanu Reeves) and Ted (Alex Winter)) do not know is that their rock band Wyld Stallyns will release music that will make the world a better place.
In the future 2688, humanity has reached a point of utopia thanks to the music of these two and the only way this can happen is if they do not get split up. And this can only happen if they pass their history exam. The future of humanity now rests in the hand of Rufus (George Carlin), a time traveler from the future whose sole job is to help these two pass their history test.
He travels back in time and meets these two

The movie uses ideas from Doctor Who as our two high school heroes travel through time in a phone box. Although, unlike Doctor Who the box is not bigger on the inside and it was fun to see these people cramp themselves into the box for their travels.

One last thing about this movie is that, you get to really appreciate it when you get to see the sequel. There is something like too much Bill and Ted and that is what the sequel and the animation proved and their antics in the sequel just made this first movie more enjoyable and classier to watch.
If you have not seen Bill and Ted go on their Excellent Adventure, well you are missing something so stupid and illiterate that it ended up being funny and cool.
