Welcome to another awesome edition of Movie Review Monday!
This week's movie is the 1989 cult classic Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure starring Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, and George Carlin.
I remember hearing about this movie before but never really gave it much thought. I had no idea the quality of the film, and felt like it might be a so bad its good type of deal. Thankfully, while at moments cheesy, the movie is a simple, silly, fun time that has a certain charm to it.
The premise of the movie is that Bill and Ted travel through time meeting different historical figures in hopes of passing their high school history final exam. They encounter everyone from Napoleon, Joan of Arc, Genghis Khan, Socrates, and Abraham Lincoln. A fun part of the movie is when Bill and Ted bring all the notable historical figures to the present and we see them exploring a mall. Obviously hilarity ensues!
With the rumors swirling that there is possibly a sequel in the works (there was already one before as well as a short lived animated series), you owe it to yourself to check this movie out. It's great for a lazy weekend or for something not super dense to have to pay a lot of attention to whenever you to check out for a bit.
You can watch Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure right now streaming on Netflix!
