For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure can be found here.

When informed by their teacher that they will be flunked if they do not pass a history course, high-schoolers Bill Preston (Alex Winter) and Theodore 'Ted' Logan (Keanu Reeves) travel in a telephone booth-shaped time machine where they pick up a number of historical figures.

The screenplay for Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. One sequel has been released: Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991).

The future takes place in 2688, while the present time (in this film) takes place in 1988 in San Dimas, California.

Yes. When Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was supposed to be released in 1988, dates in the film were originally scripted as 1987. However, when the film's release date was pushed back to 1989, the 1987 date had to be changed to 1988; for example, when Bill reads an assignment from school to Ted, he says "...San Dimas, 1988", but if you look closely, his lips are actually saying 1987.

Yes it is. "Dust in the Wind", which contains the quote "all we are is dust in the wind", appears on Kansas' 1977 album "Point of Know Return".

The fact that the number sixty-nine is the same number when turned upside down could symbolise that the two friends are each other's yin and yang. It could also be a reference to a sex position.

No, they do not. The band was only created for this movie and the sequel Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

First, after a conversation with the "real" Bill and Ted, the duplicated versions of them see Rufus by saying his name and then tells the "real" Bill and Ted, "Listen to this dude Rufus. He knows what he's talking about." Since then, whenever the "real" Bill and Ted see Rufus, they remember his name.

The reason Bill and Ted want Eddie Van Halen on guitar is so that Wyld Stallyns would become a "super band", obviously hoping for popularity. After this movie came out, Eddie himself once stated that he would have gladly joined if asked. However, in the next film, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Eddie did not appear as a member, implying that he never joined Wyld Stallyns. Instead, the band consists of Bill, Ted and their girlfriends.
