1989 Ranked - HERE
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a 1980s cult classic time travel comedy that I really wanted to check out before watching the third film that just released. I honestly didn’t know exactly what to expect and thought it might be just a middle of the road movie that I wouldn’t love as much as the people that grew up watching it. There’s been a few movies from the 80s that I’ve watched recently and felt slightly underwhelmed by but this one actually surpassed my expectations. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter as the titular characters Bill and Ted are perfect for their roles and share fantastic chemistry with each other. I love how their characters act with each other and with others, their brand of comedy worked for me which I was happily surprised by. The historical element was so intriguing as well, the way they collect each figure from different eras was extremely fun to watch and seeing them all interact made the movie for me. The comedy was great all around as well, I laughed many times and even though it’s dumb humour, it’s well done and never becomes annoying. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a truly great comedy and it has me excited to finish the trilogy, this first chapter though is truly (pun-intended) excellent.
