Product Description

Strange things are occurring outside the Circle K, San Demas. Ted Theodore Logan (Keanu Reeves) and Bill S. Preston (Alex Winter), members of the totally bodacious local band The Wyld Stallyns, have just experienced a visitation from the future. His name is Rufus (stand-up legend George Carlin), and not only is he an awesome dude, but he also has a message for Bill and Ted. The destiny of mankind lies in their hands and if Bill and Ted fail their final history exam the world will become heinous place of doom. Luckily for Bill and Ted, Rufus also has a phone booth that can travel through time and a list of historic figures they intend on abducting for their high school presentation. From the Wild West to ancient Greece, from snotty, French dictators to medieval babes, Bill and Ted must make it back to San Demas in time and ensure a future where everyone is excellent to each other.

From Amazon.co.uk

Time travel in the movies is at an all time high in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Bill S Preston Esquire (Alex Winter) and Ted Theodore Logan (Keanu Reeves) are in danger of flunking History class. They're rescued by Rufus (George Carlin), a resident of San Dimas 700 years in the future--a future in which their band Wyld Stallyns has brought about world peace and the best water slides in the universe. Entrusted with a phone booth time machine, they pick up various historical personages to give a colourful stage show for their final exam. The hip 80s rock sensibility paved the way for many comedies that followed Wayne's World, with air guitar and phrases like "bogus" and "dude" entrenching themselves way beyond the film's cult following. The film spawned a number of spin-offs including a bodacious cartoon and comic book series.

On the DVD: a trailer and a gallery of 20 behind-the-scenes photos will disappoint fans, even though it's interesting to see director Stephen Herek at work before he moved onto more serious films such as Mr Holland's Opus. However, the film has never looked better than in this transfer, and the effects still look terrific (especially the channels of Time). A Dolby sound mix also does wonders for Beethoven's keyboard improvs. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a movie from my childhood.
i Love it.
I bought it after finding out a few of my younger friends havent seen it, and they all loved it.
Very funny, and also mildy educational, whilst deteriorating your english language skills! (Totally Bodacious!)
Its a really early Keanu Reeves film, and whetehr you like him as an actor or not, he's pretty stupid and funny in this.
Great music in this too.
A real "feel good film". the precurser to films like "Dude where's your car" and all those high school movies that aren't as good as this one.

I think GPs should prescribe this film to those suffering from depression - regardless of age or gender. I have also often thought, for what it's worth, that Bill and Ted should have founded their own religion - the message being "be excellent to each other". More sensible than plenty of established faiths, I reckon.

Uplifting comedy, with lads Reeves and Winter on the verge of flunking their history class unless they come up with some extraordinary final report. To their rescue arrives a guest from the future who provides a phone booth, that enables our heroes to travel back in time. Collecting celebrities in order to spice up the report, they get more than they bargained for... Film did for the 80s what Clueless eventually did for the 90s: establishing the status quo of the period's youth culture with irreverent vernacular and a refreshingly fast pace. Thanks to the engaging performances of the two leads the film is entertaining for both the young and the young at heart. Here's to a goodnatured movie that works completely without any grossout jokes and doesn't dare to be meanspirited. So take a seat, recline and "be excellent"! As for the disc: These are the DVD times of documentaries, outtakes, deleted scenes and commentaries, therefor a theatrical trailer is as sad an extra feature as can be. The photo gallery also doesn't sweeten the pot. But the widescreen picture is brisk, the colors are saturated and the soundtrack rocks...come to think of it, that is more than I can say about my videotape and it makes the DVD - you better believe it, dudes - worth its money.

Format: DVD
Another great, innocent eighties teen movie about rock, hope, the future, the past, the present, babes etc. It may seem to send out the message that rock fans are dumb, these two are, but it is a comedy and wouldn't work if they weren't. The film is simply about friendship and trying to do something worthwhile in your life, that even a high school nobody can make a difference. Hardly original ideas, but given a totally excellent twist for the genre.

Bill and Ted are two typical high school losers from San Dimas. They love their rock music, dream of being in a band and meeting some radical babes. Reality states otherwise- that exams are approaching and if they fail, it's off to military school. As they believe that Joan of Arc was Noah's wife, their prospects of passing their history final are not good. One night, hanging around the Circle K, they meet themselves-from the future, and a guy named Rufus. He tells them they must pass their exam or there will be grave consequences for the world. They must travel back in time to find historical figures to bring back for their exam, travelling in a phone booth of course. On the way they fall in love, meet many people and get into a few scrapes. Soon though, their historical figures run riot in a local mall and get arrested. Time is running out- but they have a time machine...

A silly idea, but very cleverly executed, and the result is much smarter than you might expect. Keanu and Alex are both excellent in their roles, and the rest of the cast are all very good. Special mention to Terry Camilleri who is very funny as Napolean. He gets some of the best lines-'Le Glace?' and 'Idiot!' amongst others. There are many one-liners, the film creating an inane language of its own which is both repeatable and harmless.

I remember when I first saw this film many years ago, when I was little. I loved the film back then and I love the film now. This film stars Matrix star Keanu Reeves, along side Alex Winter. This film has good humour and a good storyline.

Bill S Preston Esquire (Alex Winter) and Ted Theodore Logan (Keanu Reeves) are high school teenagers, who are rather stupid, and don't have much common sense. The two have formed a band (which consists of just the two of them) called Wyld Stalyns, and so far, they're rather terrible. They can't play and they really do need to learn how to. In the meantime, they're failing history. They know bugger all. Ted has no idea who Joan of Arc is; he guesses Noah's wife, and Bill describes Nepolean Bonaparte as a "short dead dude". In fact as far as they're concerened, the only thing they have learned is that Cesar was a salad dressing dude.

Everyone in their year has to do a history report the following afternoon. Unless they get an A+, they'll fail history, and they've got a 1 in a million chance of learning everything they need in one night and passing history. Worse of all (to them) if they fail, Ted's father Captain Logan, who's the police chief of their home town San Dimas has decided that if Ted fails history he'll have him sent to a military school in Alaska. In fact he has already signed Ted up.

Lucky for them help is on the way; 700 years into the future, in the year 2688 a man named Rufus (George Carlin) is sent back in time to 1988 with a phone booth time machine to help Bill and Ted pass history. He lends them the time machine to ensure they pass. They also have to do this by the following afternoon; for some reason no matter where or WHEN they are, the clock in San Dimas is always running.
