    Synopsis


    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
    With only a few days before their high-school graduation, it looks like airheaded rock star wannabes Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are doomed to flunk all their finals. The boys' long-suffering teacher (Bernie Casey) gives them one more chance. If they can ace a presentation on the topic of how a famous historical personality might react to modern times, they will be allowed to pass. If not, Ted's dad will plunk the boy into military school, thereby breaking up the boys' garage band permanently. Bill and Ted receive unexpected aid from a very unexpected source: Rufus (George Carlin), an Emissary from the Future. It seems that in Rufus's time, Bill and Ted's rock music is the basis of all society-and if their band is aborted, Rufus's world will no longer exist. Thus, Bill and Ted are whisked off in a time machine (actually a telephone booth) to retrieve a few historical characters--including Joan of Arc, Abe Lincoln, Napoleon and Beethoven--as "eyewitnesses" for their crucial oral exam. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure inspired both a sequel (Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey) and a Saturday morning cartoon series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Reliving A "sort of" Classic

      Where do you start talking about a movie like this one? It's hard because basically it's whole premise is sort of goofy. It's about two "rockers" from southern California that time travel to different points in history in order to get a good grade on their oral history report. Yet, there is something so watchable, and so enjoyable about it that you just don't care. The two leads are not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed, but they're positivity and out look on life makes it hard to dislike them, and as a result you end up having a more fun with this silly plot than maybe you should

      Bill Preston and Ted Logan are two totally excellent dudes facing one most heinous history exam. With the help of Rufus an ultra-cool messenger in a time traveling phone booth, the triumphant twosome bag a bevy of historical heavyweights like the "Bodacious Philosopher" Socrates" One Very Excellent Barbarian" Genghis Khan, the "Short Dead Dude" Napoleon and "Noah's Wife" Joan of Arc to stage the most hysterical high school project ever. History's about to be rewritten by two guys who can't even spell.

      Guilty pleasure

      This movie is fun for kids and adults alike, and to learn historical figures on the way. The idea of two rocker dudes going back in time in a phonebooth to kidnap historical figures for a high school history report is hilarious. when I was young, my best friend and I went to the movies 5 times to see this movie. It became a great movie that me and my dad mutually loved and watched over and over...if i was feeling bad or my dad came in the door, he would open his arms and smile, saying "party on, dudes!!!!"

      A film that the whole family can enjoy, 'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure' is one of those movies that's just plain fun to watch. The anamorphic widescreen dvd transfer is far from outstanding, but it's more than acceptable. No bonus features except for the trailer, big fans may want to plop down the extra money to buy the Bill & Ted's special box set, although the bonus extras on that set are really not all that great, and you also end up paying for the weak sequel that just wasn't up to par with its predecessor.

      What's not great about this movie? It's excellent, a butof nostalgia and a whole lot of fun. Saw this when I was a kid and love it to this day. It's a cult classic that never loses interest. It's a modern day Rigby and Mordecai (Regular Show). Every character is interesting, from Billy the Kid to Ghengis Khan. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are funny as heck. So many one liners in this movie that will be remembered for decades.

      A classic movie with Keanu Reeves

      I was only a teenage when this movie came out and made me aware of Keanu Reeves and now have been a long time fan of his. I waited for years for this to come out on Bluray and i could not be more happy! Bill and Ted cruising through in history in a telephone booth and interacting with the late and great George Carlin really just made this a wonderfully fun movie and now i can watch it in Hi-Def anytime i want!

      I've always enjoyed this great comedy, and it's looks amazing on bluray. RIP George Carlin. That aside, Keanu at his best... And preferable. Alex winter on the other hand, I'm upset with.... He was suppose to direct a remake of one of my favorite horror movies, "the gate", but never did. When will the sequel be available? Nobody knows...

      I tried watching this years ago. I wasn't wholeheartedly paying attention. Needles to say that latter fact didn't make it leave a great impression. I saw this Steelbook was coming. I tried it out again and in full. Not so bad after all.
