2:47Wow, we need a real deep dive into Missy’s motivations.
4:52No song should have bagpipes.
7:12“We’re a couple of couples, right?”
13:42The time stream has improved just a little bit.
15:58It’s a lot of pressure, isn’t it? Write a song that unites the world.
18:29Sometimes things don’t make sense until the end of the story. Never more true than in the universe of Bill and Ted.
24:33Ahh, it’s all about the interpretation of the prophecies.
30:11Jillian Bell stealing scenes again.
35:25Bill’s British accent is much better than Ted’s.

44:07Wolfie!
52:32Oh, that’s where the princesses got the time machine from!
58:25Dennis the robot is fun.
1:04:1540 minute bass solo!
1:07:34“Dads, is there something you would like to say to Death?”
1:23:00“It was everyone playing it together.”

Thoughts

Well first off it was nowhere near as bad as the Bogus journey, so that’s a good start. It was watchable and overall entertaining but I can’t say that it was actually very good. To be honest, the best bits were the bits that Bill & Ted weren’t in, which isn’t ideal. Dennis the Robot took over the spot from Death - stealing every scene he was in. And it was fun for the wives and daughters to have a good story to go alongside the main antics.

But hopefully it’s done now, yes? We don’t need any more Bill & Ted.
