Bill & Ted Deliver the Goods for an Excellent Time,
This review is from: Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
