It is the future. Society has at last solved all
its major problems, thanks to amiable lunkheads Bill and Ted and the inspiring
music of their band, Wyld Stallyns. Only one man is dissatisfied with the way
things have turned out, the evil De Nomolos. In an effort to change the future,
De Nomolos sends evil Bill and Ted robots back in time to prevent the real Bill
and Ted from winning a pivotal Battle of the Bands. What follows is a spirited
journey through the afterlife as Bill and Ted try to rescue their girlfriends,
save the future, and, oh, yeah, learn how to play the guitar. —
This sequel to Bill &
Ted's Excellent Adventure
features more of the same moronic type of humor. Fans won't be disappointed and
people who didn't like the previous film wouldn't like this one either.
What is, however, surprising is
how this type of film seems to work at it own goofy level.
Once you have accepted the film
on its own terms it is easy to sit back and watch how the two protagonists
outwit the Grim Reaper, meet Captain Kirk and Albert Einstein. See what I mean?
