Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey Review

Synopsis:

A tyrant from the future creates evil android doubles of Bill and Ted and sends them back to eliminate the originals.

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991) is an American science-fiction fantasy comedy film that is a sequel to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) and is the second film in the Bill & Ted franchise. Director Peter Hewitt (Garfield (2004), The Borrowers (1997), Zoom (2006)) did an excellent job executing this 93-minute movie that is filled with comedy.The film contains mild bad language that I would not let my eldest son (13) see, violence, comedy, thrills and a great journey with laughter.

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey revolves around Bill (Alex Winter - Freaked (1993), Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989), Jimmy Kimmel Live! (2003)) and Ted going on a mission that is awesome. Well, at least, Bill and Ted (Keanu Reeves - The Matrix (1999), Speed (1994), The Devil’s Advocate (1997), John Wick (2014)) thinks so. Bill and Ted will meet with time-traveler Rufus (George Carlin), the Grim Reaper (William Sadler), the Devil, God, Albert Einstein (John Ehrin), the Easter Bunny and two Martians. The friends mission is to save the 15th-century English maidens, win a battle of the bands and reassert their destiny. De Nomolos (Joss Ackland) is hell bent on sabotaging Ted’s and Bill’s fate and send two evil robot versions of Bill and Ted to change it for the worse.

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey is funny and a simple watch. My favorite scene is when Bill and Ted meet the Grim Reaper, who allows them a game of their choice because if they win, then they will be permitted to live. This movie is darker than its original, and it is plain out fun to watch with more comedy that will make you burst out laughing, originality and a well-written script. Bill and Ted’s characters did not change, but the film is just better in many ways. The special effects was a major plus and was done nicely as well as the comedic performances.
