BILL AND TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE (Theatrical Release USA 1989)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure lacks connectivity, the links necessary to establish a solid storyline. It leaves too many logical connections behind so that the reasons for the appearance of characters from the future and from the past are lost. Instead of a good, time traveling flick, it can be easily labeled as improbable due to a consistent failure to follow many of the time travel ‘rules’ previous movies have set in stone for movie goers.

Storyline

Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are destined to write music that will transform the future into a wonderful place, but they must graduate high school first.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Stephen Herek for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Robert W. Cort and Ted Field for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Rufus (George Carlin), Napoleon (Terry Camilleri), Billy the Kid (Dan Shor), Socrates (Tony Steedman), Freud (Rod Loomis), Genghis Khan (Al Leong), Joan of Arc (Jane Wiedlin), Abraham Lincoln (Robert V. Barron), Beethoven (Clifford David), Captain Logan (Hal Landon Jr.), Mr. Ryan (Bernie Casey), and Missy/Mom (Amy Stoch).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. However, this type of comedy presents itself better in movies like The Three Stooges (2012).
