Bill & Ted Face The Music

Bill & Ted Face The Music is everything you ever wanted from a third Bill & Ted movie. It’s true that the first 15 minutes or so are painfully slow, with Keanu Reeves seemingly struggling to recapture that spirt of artless bonhomie that characterised his performance in the first two films in the franchise. But don’t despair. Bill & Ted quickly get into their stride, ably aided by their daughters, Thea (Samara Weaving) and Billie (Brigette Lundy-Paine).

While Reeves and Winters jump through time in their trusty phone booth, looking for the song that will unite the multiverse, Thea and Billie take their own magical mystery tour, assembling the ultimate band to play the ultimate song.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991) were never huge box office hits. Yet, their popularity has spawned comics, animations, video games, a musical, and even a breakfast cereal. The reason that the duo continue to be such an influence on pop culture 30 years after that first film is simple: the world needs Bill & Ted. It needs their positivity, their charm, and their open and honest friendship.

Bill & Ted Face The Music has all that—and more. It’s 1 hour and 33 minutes of nostalgia, of chuckles, knowing nods, and tears. If the world ever needed to be reminded to be excellent to each other, than time is now. Party on Bill & Ted.
