BILL AND TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY (Theatrical Release USA 1991)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey builds a quirky framework and then allows the story to randomly bounce around within the irregularly established boundaries. The outcome seems to put a new face on comedy so that the film is ‘kind of’ comical married to highly creative. The film becomes difficult to classify and definitely works at borderline cult classic. This is Alex Winters and Keanu Reeves second Bill and Ted movie casting and in some ways seem to have performed a little better than in the last film. William Sadler plays a great Grimm Reaper.

Storyline

Bill and Ted take a detour into death’s gate, make death their slave, and begin an adventure to regain their lives.

Yes. This movie is part of a series and is necessary if fans want to finish the series. The film works for the teen/adult audience.
