Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure ★★★½

With the new one coming out, I felt compelled to go back and revisit the OG to see if it was as fun as I remembered.

The premise is great, and as a History teacher myself it had me smiling even before Bill and Ted really get into their antics. I think what works so well with this movie for me is that the two titular characters actually have a subdued intellect about them and the way they speak that I really missed when I originally watched it.

There's a charm to the town of San Dimas that almost makes me want a Bill and Ted movie that doesn't play in genre at all and just focuses on them trying to get through a day in their lives. If you haven't seen this film in awhile, it's definitely worth a revisit.
