Once Bill and Ted get out of hell, though, their film loses it -- in more ways than one.

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

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

High-tech special effects come to the rescue of the party dudes in this uneven sequel that has some big laughs and plenty of repetitive jokes.

All things considered, I would rather play Twister.

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

The new movie, which is about how the scruffy pair save the world (or something), sends them to heaven and hell and everywhere in between. The sets are impressive, but the joke has worn perilously thin.

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

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

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

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.

A masterpiece of stupid.
