Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure Reviews
This Movie Has Split Down The Middle Reviews By The Audience; Half Of The People I've Asked Have Liked It & The Other Half Have Said That It Annoyed The Hell Out Of Them.
(& I Guess There Were Those Very Few Who Didn't Think)
(That It Was Great Or Bad; Just A One Timer Watch)
Its A Late 1980's Parody Comic Film That Is On The Light Hearted Side About Two Struggling High School Students That Are Planning On Forming Their Own Band; That Just Ain't Gonna Happen If They Can't Pass Their Final Oral History Report. To Make Sure That Happens They Will Be Assisted By A Time Traveler From The Future Named Rufus.
For Me This Film Was Very Entertaining, But As I've Seen From So Many That I Have Asked About The Film, They Either Like It Or They Hate It.
I Give This Film An A (Amazing) ***** 1/2
Sure, it has a couple of minor time travel paradoxes, but you just don't care because it's such an awesome ride that you won't want it to end! It snubs it's nose at overcomplicated time travel movies by making itself one that is very matter-of-factly presented, and it has some fun with causality loops while winking at the audience. It calls attention to the notion that when you have a time machine you can literally go back and fix anything you want--or even PLAN to go back and do it later so that you can help yourself out in the present (it makes sense if you watch it).
But this movie is so self-aware and so silly and innocuous that you can't help but love it. Everyone has that film in their life that they feel like it was made for them. Mine is Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.
Twizard Rating: 98
A solid and often funny nostalgic 80s flick.
