"Bill & Ted Face the Music" is rated PG-13 (for some language) and out now in theaters.
He has also been key to getting the latest Bill & Ted off the ground.
Bill & Ted Face the Music has received positive reviews. Unfortunately Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure had its last show in 2017 at Halloween Horror Nights 27. The main gist of the story is that Bill and Ted get warned by a visitor from the future (Kristen Schaal) that they need to create a most excellent song in 78 minutes or else humanity will be doomed.
Bill & Ted Face the Music has been ably directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, RED 2) and scripted by returning writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, whom you can see in cameo roles as demons in Hell.
The movie introduces a handful of new characters, among them, the wives of Bill and Ted, played by "Childrens Hospital" actress Erinn Hayes and "Glee" alum Jayma Mays - both of whom couldn't wait to join the cast.
Now that their daughters, Thea Preston (Samara Weaving) and Billie Logan (Brigette Lundy-Paine), are older, this film really brings a different dynamic and proves that they really are a mini Bill and Ted. The two characters have been so caught up trying to write a "world saving" song, that they have put being a husband and now father in the back seat, giving them an interesting new dynamic.
The most-excellent time-traveling rock "n" rollers are on a mission to save the world in 'Bill & Ted Face the Music'.
Kremlin dismisses Navalny poison claims as calls mount for probe
The wife of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, Julia, left, arrives at Berlin's Charite Hospital on August 25, 2020. Merkel is calling on Russian officials to carry a full investigation of the poisoning of Navalny.
To be perfectly honest, but in a most non-odious way, Bill and Ted's third outing after so many decades came with a bit of apprehension, made all the worst by the opening moments.
Much like the first movie, they go on a time-hopping recruitment trip.
While music is special to the stars, so is their latest film.
But you can't fault the Bill & Ted movies for not being particularly deep - in fact, that's arguably their biggest appeal. According to Reeves, the goofy pair aren't stoners - they're just naturally happy guys.
They embark on a series of travails involving multiple iterations of their future selves and a trip to Hell to make up with Death (William Sadler) and save their daughters and all of the bodacious musicians they've collected throughout history (thanks a lot, Dennis). Don't worry, it kicks in, mostly in the second half of the film, which is finally where the comedy starts crackling thanks to the introduction of a killer cyborg, played by a scene-stealing Anthony Carrigan. Every line out of Carrigan's mouth is gut-bustingly hilarious, which he delivers with all the guilelessness of the nerdy kid at school who accidentally bumped into you and dropped all his books (which is kind of fantastic considering the amount of prosthetics that the Barry breakout is under). I'm just going to leave that there'. But now middle-aged, Bill and Ted have failed to do so.
That's to not say that everybody beloved Invoice and Ted Face the Music. Their daughters, just like them, live and breathe music.
