I will be the first to say that Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is INDEED excellent! This movie has soul; a swoopy, high school aged youthful bliss soul.

The premise and story of this movie is not important. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure thrives on the pure charisma of Keanu Reeves and his partner Alex Winter. Playing the pair of high school spelunkers, the pure “ignorance is bliss” confidence of the two makes me wish I was able to have that naivete.

  • I had no idea that George Carlin was in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. What a wonderful, comedic surprise.
  • The best of the historical figures that Ted (Keanu Reeves) and Bill (Alex Winter) pick up is either Freud or Beethoven.
  • I will be watching the next two movies in this series. I wonder if the third movie will lose the charm with better special effects.
  • The unintentionally funniest parts of this movie is how Ted and Bill just immerse themselves in the historical moments with no real regard for costumes or langue barriers. Just BOOM, plow through the wall.
