Two seemingly dumb teens set off on a quest to prepare the ultimate historical presentation with the help of a time machine.


I’ve watched Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure relatively recently. Still, I re-watched it. It’s such a feel-good movie that it’s hard to resist. It has a lot of quotable lines. It’s funny. There’s also time travel. It was made for me.

Surprisingly, it was a hit at its release. So many of my movies were slow burns, not finding their audience until years later. It’s nice to know that Bill & Ted have always been enjoyed. Hollywood, why can’t you make more lovable stoners?
