Totally excellent as Keanu and Alex Winter thrive together. They're goofy but it works and the film unabashedly takes advantage of the time machine in the best ways and jokes. The Napolean side plot is rather unnecessary and premise is as outlandish as ever, but it is a fun ride throughout.
A true 80s classic for the times, Bill and Ted capitalizes on its overwhelming cheese and imagination with a twisty and turny story that somehow makes way more sense than it should thanks to the magnetic stars and focused plot.
The first time I learned about Bill and Ted was when I saw a full page ad promoting it on the back of a Marvel comic book. I saw the movie some time later, when I was 12 or 13, and it was a most excellent brain fart comedy. I am a 39 year old father of one now, and this silly paint-by-numbers movie still manage to put a genuine smile on face through it's sheer earnestness.
