Opinion

From Library Staff

"This is a spirited doofus comedy sustained by the sweet, slack-jawed performances of Reeves and Winter as dumbfounded idiots who stumble through time to cram for their history final." - Sean Axmaker, Stream on Demand

I saw this movie ages ago and have seen it several times since. It's absolutely hilarious and Keanu Reeves is very different in this one than he is in the latest John Wick movies! But it's nice to see him as a clueless teenager. I loved George Carlin and the actor who played "So-Crates" is hilarious as well. Fun to watch at least once for nostalgia's sake or for some laughs.

Seems like the onset of Keanu Reeves. Fun, farcical and well done. It is clearly a Comedy, though perhaps isn't presented as such; making it even better. (I've heard rumors of a 3rd Bill & Ted...)

I recommend this comical DVD for all ages. Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey has a weak story but the slapstick humour keeps it moving. I laughed a lot. I saw no violence to prevent children from watching it. The actors did a great job.

For as dumb as it is this holds up very well due mostly to the good-natured performances, snappy direction, and a script that is wittier than it seems. Also, according to imdb, one of only 3 films that feature both Abraham Lincoln and Ghengis Khan as characters, so it has that going for it…which is nice.

I expected a dumb slacker comedy filled with endless stupidity, but I was pleasantly surprised. This film is not only entertaining, but it's also a lesson in both timeloops and historically significant figures, like Billy the Kid, Freud, Napoleon, Genghis Khan, Socrates, Abraham Lincoln, and Joan of Arc. I was genuinely entertained and my expectations were surpassed by far. Considering its attention to some important details, I feel this film is ideal for a basic world history lesson. Furthermore, I highly recommend it for its entertainment value! It truly was an excellent adventure.

Ridiculous, but awesome. Too bad they couldn't stop with one movie though!
