Be excellent to each other and party on, dudes!
I first watched this movie as a child. I only remembered an old phone box that served as a time machine and two guys, one of whom I thought was a complete jerk (guess which one). And now that I’m not a kid anymore, I’ve started watching this movie again. Believe me, I wasn’t expecting… …but I loved it. I laughed a lot, and the mood jumped up the Richter scale so well.
The plot in a nutshell is this. Bill (a.k.a. Bill Preston Esquire) and Ted (a.k.a. Ted “Theodore” Logan) are two lobotographers who dream of forming their own rock band… Really, you shouldn’t listen to them play guitars, you should feel sorry for your ears.
Bill: I certainly agree that our band will have a great future in time, but we will never be great if Eddie Van Halen is not with us.
Ted: I agree, Bill, but he won’t be joining us until we make a scrap video.
Bill: Ted, we’re not making a scrap video without decent tools.
Ted: What are we gonna do with decent instruments if we can’t play?
Bill: That’s why we need Eddie Van Halen.
And I bet you Eddie Van Halen can play…
They study even worse than playing guitars, and if they don’t pass the upcoming exam, the dream of creating a rock band can be forgotten, because Ted Daddy promised to lock up in a military school in Alaska. But Bill and Ted don’t know yet that they are the future gurus of the entire earthly society, that thanks to their music the society has been transformed for the better, and the earthly paradise has come on the planet. And if they’re separated, there’s no heaven on Earth. In short, the future is in danger, and that is why they sent Rufus, their assistant, to help Bill and Ted with their mission to pass the test from the future. Bill and Ted will travel in a phone booth, a time machine, to the past. They’re going to bring in a good company of famous historical personalities from this very past to make a brainstorming history report with their help.
I’ve never been a fan of American youth comedy. They’re a little cheesy to me. And here, not a gram of vulgarity. And if you think Bill looking at his father’s pretty young wife, Millie, who’s strictly asking you to call her Mom, is dirty, then ask what Bill thinks about it…
– Hey, I only have a little Oedipus complex!
“Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, apart from being a comedy, is also a short tour of history. Here you and Genghis Khan…
– 700 years ago, he defeated China and two hours ago, a sporting goods store.
and Ludwig van Beethoven…
– Beethoven’s favourite compositions are Mozart’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah and Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet.
And besides them: Socrates, Freud, Napoleon, Abraham Lincoln, Jeanne D’Arc.
As for the main star of the movie – Keanu Reeves, who was not a star at the time, then, in my opinion, the role of a jerk teenager, he goes like an infusion. At least as a child, I thought it was Keanu, not his hero Ted such a dork. Over time, Mr. Reeves, of course, managed to change my mind.
It was also a surprise to learn that the director of Toothpicks was making this movie. These films were the nightmare of my childhood. The author of cult horror films, I must say, and coped with the comedy in his time quite well.
The film’s not a masterpiece, but it doesn’t claim to be. It’s quite a funny movie in the style of “American jerks” and perfectly matured in this style. It’s not a rude, dirty, funny and easy teen comedy. And by the way, the film is not devoid of common sense, sobering such after all these crazy adventures …
Ted: We traveled through time, we met great people, we got an A-plus for our history report, and look at us – nothing has changed.
Bill: Maybe it’s time we invited Eddie Van Halen to the band.
Ted: Maybe it’s time we learned to play.
