Two would-be rockers from San Dimas, California, were once told they'd save the universe during a time-traveling adventure, but find themselves as middle-aged dads still trying to crank out a hit song and fulfill their destiny.
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

William Sadler played an executioner and the titular character in the very first episode of The Tales From The Crypt television series named "The Man Who Was Death" two years earlier. See more »
At the Battle of the Bands, scorch marks suddenly appear on the evil robot heads shortly before Bill and Ted throw them away. This is from a deleted scene where DeNomolos fires at the boys; but they use the heads to block the shots. 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?

When the Princesses ask Evil Bill and Ted who they are, a scene was cut where Evil Bill says, Actually I'm Evil Ted" and Evil Ted says, "and I'm Evil Bill." They then unzip their clothes and skins to reveal what they said. This helps explain how Rufus was Miss Wardroe. In the released film, when the evil robots go to answer the phone at Missy's, the skin and clothes can be seen on the floor in the background The original ending was changed, possibly to make it more final.

I wouldn't dare say this film is better than the original, but it is very good in it's own right. The comedy in this film is just as good as the original though, there are so many scenes that get me laughing just thinking about them.
The story in this film is even more bizarre than the original, but that's what makes it so great. Peter Hewitt does a great job directing this film with a great cast. The core cast from the original film returns to their characters in this film and all do a fantastic job with their roles. I don't care what anyone says, I think Keanu Reeves is a great actor! I really enjoyed his portrayal of Ted in both of these films as I did Alex Winter's Bill. I was very happy to see George Carlin returning to the role of Rufus, very cool! Hal London Jr, who plays the part of Ted Logan's father does a really good job. The scene where Ted possesses his fathers body and Hal London Jr begins acting like Ted is a great scene, and he pulls it off impressively well. I can't forget to mention William Sadler as Death, he completely made the movie for me. The rest of the cast is quite good as well.
If you liked the first installment of the Bill and Ted series, then I would hope you would like this film as well. But, don't expect it to be as good as the original. I really hope you enjoy the film, thanks for reading,
