Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
Before meeting Socrates' Bill and Ted read up on his philosophy, " 'The only true wisdom consists of knowing that you know nothing.' That's us dude." "Oh. Yeah."
- Bill to Ted (Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves, respectively)
There's nothing better than watching Keanu Reeves save mankind, best Death, and interact with nifty special effects...
Rating: 4/5 -- It dodges the pitfalls of message-heavy teen movies and skirts the spite of the dumb-and-dumber era it arguably helped birth. Add two innately loveable leads and you can see it takes some smarts to sell something quite this daft. Full Review
Thankfully, the sense of humor still holds and the lead characters are as sweet and dumb as ever. They mean well, they just don't have follow through--and we've all known that person. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- What really makes it all work are Reeves and Winter. They're such appealing, wide-eyed idiots that it's impossible not to pull for them. They make a great team. Full Review
This is extremely silly, good natured, superficial stuff; a lot depends on whether you take to Bill and Ted's unique lingo (which contorts surfers' expressions) and their gormless behaviour. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- It's an inspired bit of silliness, and one of the best of its kind. Full Review
From the Front Row
...There's a strong and savvy soundtrack....Witlessly appealing...
The excitement and fun begin when a trio of interplanetary rulers dispatch a cool hipster from the 27th century to send two teenage boys - who should have been studying history instead of playing rock music - on a trip through time and history.
Two brain-dead California teenagers, with a combined vocabulary of approximately 75 words, travel back in time to corral various historical figures for a class presentation that just might keep the pair from failing history "most heinously." Napoleon, Socrates, Billy The Kid, Sigmund Freud and Mozart are among those who journey forward in time with the duo in order to give the youth of California eye-witness accounts of the "awesome" pageant that is world history. Most excellent.
- Film was followed by a sequel, "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey" (1991), and an animated television series.
- Jane Wiedlin, the actress who plays "Joan of Arc", was formerly a member of "The Go-Go's", an all-woman rock/pop band that enjoyed a measure of success in the 1980s.
- Shot in Technicolor.
