Bill & Ted Face the Music

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter revisit Bill & Ted, nearly 30 years after Bogus Journey. The metalhead dummies are now middle-aged dads, still with dreams of making the big time with their band, the Wyld Stallyns. But, out of luck and inspiration, they get back to their time travelling ways to find the song that will set their world right and avoid the apocalypse. And how do they plan to get the track they're destined to play? By stealing it from their future selves, of course.

Face The Music has turned out to be better than it perhaps any right to be, recapturing the spirit of its predecessors, and might be the most fun you’ll have watching a movie this whole awful goddamn year.

No way is it bogus, but one can’t help feel that, with a little more fine-tuning (and Weaving and Lundy-Paine) this could have been excellent.

Bill & Ted Face the Music is a pleasant escape for the quarantine-stricken, a sweet and entertaining romp that defies expectations by largely recapturing what worked about the series so many years later.

On a scale of one to 10, I wouldn't say that "Face the Music" goes to 11, but it's a most excellent sequel.

Despite a dicey opening, the pic should please those looking forward to it, and, with the addition of a new generation (the duo's daughters), attract a new fan or two as well.

A little stupid idealism can go a long way, and "Face the Music" makes the case that morons can come together to set the world right. Talk about movie magic.

Mostly, the joy comes from watching Reeves and Winter on screen, two holy fools just doing their best to bring light and love and non-heinous riffs - and remind the bleary-eyed citizens of 2020, perhaps, of a simpler, sweeter world gone by.

I don't know if it made me feel young or old, but it was all in all a most non-bogus experience.

Besides, at a moment when saving reality as we know it doesn't sound quite so far-fetched, there's something mildly reassuring about watching "Bill & Ted" blithely joined in rocking on, even if true excellence eludes them.

The plot... rips off the original - which was thin to begin with - and makes it worse.

The film simply takes too long to find its focus. It's not the most excellent of outcomes, but not a total bummer, either.

The film suggests that Bill and Ted's dreams of stardom, which have evolved into dreams of acceptance and expression, aren't so stupid after all.
