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

When Bill S. Preston Esq. says about the girls, 'They're hanging from the rafters', this is not a reference to his vampire character Marko from 'The Lost Boys' (1987) who slept hanging upside down from the rafters. See more »
In Hell, when the rock that Bill and Ted are standing on gets pulled by the chain, they fall on their backs. As they fall, Bill is clearly holding a Hammer and Ted is holding a Sledge. See more »
Chuck De Nomolos:
It is time. They have reached the second crucial turning point in their destiny. Their message is about to reach millions. But, we will change all that. When our mission is successful, no longer will the world be dominated by the legacy of these two fools! No longer will we hear this.

Chuck De Nomolos:
We will stop them now! Brothers and sisters, are we ready?

In the television version of the film, the scene where Station is building the good robot Bill & Ted in the van on the way to the concert is extended. Death is sitting in the passenger's seat and asks Bill if he likes him. Bill still driving the van, replies 'Yeah' and offers Death a stick of gum. Death graciously accepts and shoves the piece (wrapper and all) in his mouth. He then spits it out saying, "I don't like gum". See more »
I can't tell you how many times I saw the first Bill & Ted movie before ever seeing this sequel...because it was a sequel, so I figured it wouldn't be as good. I was wrong. I first saw it on television; my sister watched it with me. I couldn't stop laughing. She kept shaking her head, saying, "it's not funny, it's stupid" - but she kept laughing, too. How can you not laugh at the sight of Death playing Twister? Or, "You ugly, red, source of all evil!!" I loved the first movie, but I think the second, despite being darker, is funnier, more imaginative, and better written. William Sadler as Death was so, so, funny, so dead on (no pun intended), he deserved an Oscar nomination; this film made him one of my favorite character actors. Alex Winter & Keanu Reeves made Bill & Ted into airheads you root for. They're stupid, sure, but man are they good-hearted! So thumbs up from me; a third Bill & Ted movie would probably be too much, but they did go out in fine style. Catch you later, Bill & Ted!
