Acts as the third instalment in the Bill & Ted film series and a sequel to Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991)
Now enduring the monotony of middle-aged life, Bill and Ted are warned by a visitor from the future of the need for them to create a song in 78 minutes that will save all life on Earth and the entire universe. The pair work with their families, old friends, famous musicians, and each other to complete the task.
Bodaciously bonkers and delightfully dimwitted, Bill & Ted Face the Music is a true nostalgic treat for the senses! I mean, it’s completely unnecessary, but it’s enjoyable, nonetheless. Firstly, Reeves and Winter have the same comedic chemistry they shared some 30 plus years ago, and as it was back then, their energy is totally infectious. The supporting cast also adds a nice touch to things, as everyone does their part to bring the laughs (there’s plenty of LOLs to go around btw). The film also benefits from the advancements in special effects, with the many “trips in time” done pretty spectacularly. But, while they do a decent enough job of recapping the decades past films, an understanding of those movie plot points would surely aid in your overall entertainment. That is to say that it can be a little overwhelming for newcomers. But, all in all, this is a rockn’ and welcome return for Bill and Ted that will surely have you smiling throughout. All together now: “Whoa!”
