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>

Goofs

When Bill and Ted are playing Twister with Death, Bill plays barefoot. His shoes are visible off to the side. After Bill wins the game, Death tells them that he will take them back, and the two talk about how they will fight their evil robot duplicates. Right after they talk, they follow Death, and Bill's shoes are clearly shown on his feet, although he never picked them up after the game. See more »

Quotes

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.

Alternate Versions

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.

Very underrated
31 August 2000 | by XPrufrockSee all my reviews

One of the most underrated movies I've seen in a long time, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey is the second hilarious adventure of Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted Theodore Logan, aka Wyld Stallyns. There are two ways to look at this film: First, you see dumb dialogue, far fetched plot, juvenile idea. OR.. You see brilliantly downplayed idiots who yet again find themselves in a situation too big for their brains. Throw a Bruce Willis or a Arnold Schwarzeneggar into this plot and it becomes a big blockbuster movie. Bill and Ted go into the story with the same level of sincerity, only it's Bill and Ted. This is a tricky fence to balance on, but when you watch the movie not as a throwaway screwball comedy, but as an adventure featuring two guys who have no business being in an adventure, it becomes so much more.
