Preston, Esquire!" Ted: "And I'm Ted 'Theodore' Logan!" Bill & Ted: "And together we are... Wyld Stallyns!!!" Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure Directed by Stephen Herek (The Mighty Ducks, Mr. Holland's Opus) Way into the future, mankind lives in peace, all thanks to two most excellent dudes from the 20th century - Bill S. Preston, ESQ., and Ted "Theodore" Logan, collectively known as "Wyld Stallyns." But in order for this future to exist, Bill & Ted have to get an A on their history project. With the aid of a time-travelling phone booth supplied by some dude named Rufus, Bill & Ted venture to the past and pick up historical figures which will guarantee them a bodacious grade. King: "Put them in the Iron Maiden." Bill & Ted: "Iron Maiden? Excellent!" [Air guitar] King: "Execute them." Bill & Ted: "Bogus." Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey Directed by Peter Hewitt (Garfield: The Movie) All is well in the future until the evil dickweed De Nomolos sends two evil robot clones of Bill & Ted to the present day as part of his non-non-non-non-heinous scheme to change history. When our heroes are killed, they must battle Death to win back their lives and prevent De Nomolos and his robots from ruining the future. "Station!" Long before Keanu Reeves had a most triumphant career in Hollywood, he and Alex Winter were two slackers playing air guitar in this two-movie collection. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure brings back memories of the '80s, when most cheesy movies were actually fun to watch, but don't really stand the test of time. Despite an egregious soundtrack and a bonehead script, the first movie is still a load of laughs. The second film has a much darker tone, as it focuses on Bill & Ted's struggle to return to the real world. While the music (featuring songs by Primus and KISS) is more excellent than the first film's, Bogus Journey just isn't as memorable. Nevertheless, it's still worth checking out. Overall, this boxed set makes an excellent rental for most movie fans. Unless you hate the '80s, you won't be totally disappointed, dudes.
