Storyline

The world of our distant future is a veritable utopia, thanks to the lyrics of two simple-minded 20th Century rock and rollers, Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted "Theodore" Logan. However, a would-be conquerer threatens to throw history off-track by sending "most non-non-heinous" evil robot Bill and Teds back to kill their good counterparts. Finding themselves dead, the boys must outwit the Grim Reaper and traverse Heaven and Hell to return to the land of the living, rescue their "babes" and have a "most triumphant" concert at the all-important Battle of the Bands. Written by David Thiel <d-thiel@uiuc.edu>

Trivia

The mountain, to which Bill and Ted are brought to be killed by the evil robots, is the same mountain Captain Kirk climbs in Star Trek: The Original Series: Arena (1967), which Bill and Ted watched in their apartment. See more »

Goofs

When Bill and Ted are in Hell and their floating rock is being pulled towards Satan, Ted can be seen holding a hammer, when he didn't have one before when he and Bill fell on their rock. This was from a deleted scene in which Bill and Ted were forced by a demon guard to break rocks. See more »

Pretty good for a sequel.
7 August 2020 | by megavidaeosSee all my reviews

They over did it a bit on the goofiness factor, at least compared to the first one, but it's Bill and Ted, it's supposed to be crazy and wacky. Not quite as fun as the first but still definitely worth a watch.
