Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Stephen Herek (1988)

PG Certificate


Our Score
A nonstop giggle from start to finish, this beguiling grab-bag of time-travel clichés, hard-rock music and Valley-speaking cool dudes is a flawless, purpose-built junk movie. Director Stephen Herek's scattershot style perfectly complements the wayward cosmic capers, while Keanu Reeves (in his pre-sex symbol days) bravely takes on comedian Alex Winter for the "Most Witlessly Appealing Airhead" crown. Reeves resembles a moronic puppet with loose strings ambling amiably through this happy-go-lucky voyage into the short circuits of history. Engaging to the max, Winter and Reeves were tempted back two years later for the equally entertaining and stupid Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, with Peter Hewitt in the director's chair.
