As the movie opens, the whole world is Bill's and Ted's oyster. They have their own apartment, they are in love with the princess babes they rescued from mediaeval England in the first movie, and the Battle of the Bands is all set to take place the following night. As they already know from Rufus (George Carlin) of the future, their performance at the Battle of the Bands will change the entire world and quickly lead to a blissful future for mankind in which everyone is excellent to each other. In that happy future, Rufus is teaching a class with the aid of such historical figures as Bach, Edison, and the killer guitar player from Faith No More. Then, from out of the blue, the classroom is taken over by gunmen led by Rufus' old crotchety gym teacher Chuck De Nomolos.Read more ›
The first movie was a success. The second isn't as exciting, although it does have its moments, but it is still a totally bogus movie. All the old characters appear, the princesses, the dads, Missy, and some great new stars, William Sadler playing the Duke of Spook, the Doc of Shock, The Man with No Tan, Death himself, the Grim Reaper. He is terrific in this movie, moreso towards the end, where he comes out with a excellent line: "You might be a king or a little street sweeper, but sooner or later you'll dance with the reaper." You've gotta love that line.
Not since Chasing Amy etc, has a movie come out with great end credits. (If you like the final song, you'll probably watch the credits right to the end, if you don't, you won't!) Here are some examples of what appears in the end credits to Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey:

Well, I'm sorry to say, but the Bogus Journey isn't anywhere near as good as the original film. Bill and Ted have been out of high school for a long time, yet they still act and behave like they're in high school. That's not so bad, but then they get killed by evil robot counterparts from the future and the movie quickly goes downhill from there until the last ten minutes of the film where we learn how Bill and Ted became the great Bill and Ted of the future. The whole journey through Heaven and Hell that the bumbling duo travel is a pain to watch. Also, what's the deal with a Martian in Heaven? That's just wrong. Sure, Station is a fun character, but it just doesn't fit. Also, we know how Bill and Ted came back to life, but how did Station come back from death?
Anyway, I'm taking this movie way too seriously, but that's the point. Whereas, the first movie was fun and humorous enough to ignore the plot holes and suspend your disbelief, this one is not. Besides explaining Bill and Ted history, the only other high point of this movie is the scene where Bill and Ted challenge Death; it's a great bit of comedy and makes the drudgery of most of the rest of the movie worth watching.

My son and I enjoyed this, but not as much as Bill and Ted 1 (Excellent Adventure). The Grim Reaper character is funny in this movie. Elsewhere, Death is not appreciated.Published 2 months ago by Richard Schletty
