I was afraid of lame stoner humor, but Bill & Ted aren't stoners, they only speak like them because they're morons. But well-meaning morons. They're naiveté is ultimately charming and what makes the films work. It's all so uncynical and if something dates the films, it's that. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure takes time travel to ridiculous levels, with history's integrity hardly a problem despite the duo taking people out of it, but it's also got some fun timey-wimey stuff. It's clever. Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey doesn't risk coming off as stale by repeating the first film's tropes and beats. Instead of time travel, Bill & Ted die and move through the afterlife seeking resurrection so they can save their girlfriends and careers. Both movies end on a fun stage show, with the second providing the perfect ending to the franchise. Goofy fun.
Mindless, but totally entertaining. The jokes are there, Death himself is amusing, and the dialogue between Bill and Ted is show stopping. Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey is a funny little flick,
Answers the deep metaphysical question: what would a Bergman film be like if made in Hollywood?
