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)
BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE does have fun with time-travel logic, and is filled with delightful little absurdities like Billy The Kid and Socrates tossing a football around in medieval times.
... this is a spirited doofus comedy sustained by the sweet, slack-jawed performances of Reeves and Winter as dumbfounded idiots who stumble through time to cram for their history final ... 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
...There's a strong and savvy soundtrack....Witlessly appealing...
Reeves, with his beguilingly blank face and loose-limbed, happy-go-lucky physical vocabulary, and Winter, with his golden curls, gleefully good vibes and 'bodacious' vocabulary, propel this adventure as long as they can. Full Review
More than anything, the picture looks paltry and undernourished. Even the warts on Lincoln's face look slapped on. 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
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.
