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 were playing Battleship with Death, it showed them one hit from winning which means that they've already hit Death's last ship multiple times. They first guessed B3, which is all the way in the top left corner. Then guessed J7 which is all the way in the lower right hand corner for the last hit. There is no reason for them to guess B3 at all when they know that his last ship is around J7. See more »

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.

You gotta love this one!
19 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

When I was a kid, I totally loved both Bill & Ted Movies. The other night, Bogus Journey was on and since it was at least 5 years since I last saw it, I decided to tune in. AND I LOVED IT ALL OVER AGAIN! This film is still funny after all those years. 'Excellent Adventure' is better, but this one rocks just the same. Sure, some of the perfomances are a bit cheesy, but hey, this entire film is cheesy in a cool way. Plus it features the coolest personation of Death ever in a movie! Concluding: Totally like non bogus movie dude! Way Excellent! STATION!!!
