Reeves and Winter are clearly having a wonderful time. The enthusiasm is contagious.

It's playful, funny and finishes far too quickly.

In almost every respect, Bogus Journey is better than the original: more imaginative, more opulent, wilder and freer, more excitingly visualized.

Bill and Ted have a guileless, immediate way of dealing with the world that makes them both very likeable and highly entertaining to watch.

Perhaps even smarter than the original as it expands the potential for the surreal and ties up all the loose ends, managing, quite remarkably, to give its own pointlessness a purpose.

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.

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 plot is 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.
