An anarchic motion picture, but reveals triumphant originality -- a sublime daredevil of a film that authentically assumes a great deal of risk. Not many sequels can lay claim to that.

[The] filmmakers might have gotten more mileage if they'd rooted their adventure a bit more in reality.

Has there ever been a more perfect role for Keanu Reeves than floppy-haired, dim-brained high school slacker Ted "Theodore" Logan?

For those who appreciate dude-speak and bozo humor, this is a very funny film.

...the various elements that made Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure such an unexpected delight are almost entirely absent here.

awash in weird humor and outlandish gags

A riot of visual invention and weird humor that works on its chosen sub-moronic level, and on several others as well...

Its best moments make up for its more mediocre ones.

It's hard not to appreciate two guys who can invest a cry of "Whoa!" with such pure ecstasy and who think that Joan of Arc is Noah's wife.

More mindless airhead time-traveling fun. The hilarious William Sadler gives the best portrayal of Death since Bengt Ekerot in THE SEVENTH SEAL.
| Original Score: 4/5

EXCELLENT! (But not quite as EXCELLENT! as the first.)
| Original Score: 4/5

Worth seeing if only for the scene in which Bill & Ted play 'Battleship' with Death.
| Original Score: 3/5

Diverting nonsense
| Original Score: 3/5

Doesn't eclipse the original, but the dorky charm is still there ... plus it's got William Sadler's immortal turn as Death.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Funnier and livelier than the original.

Empire Magazine
January 1, 2000
One of the most worthwhile sequels of recent years, maybe funnier than the original as it intelligently expands the potential for the surreal and it ties up all the loose ends managing, quite remarkably, to give pointlessness a purpose.

Silly, sophomoric and very weird. Or, in Bill and Ted's vocabulary, it's lame, scorched and egregious.
