"This movie is most non... non... NON heinous, dude."
Dude, dude, dude. Like awesome dude. Dude, dude, dude. Yeah.The whole Bill & Ted's series seems fitted around the image/persona of Keanu Reeves. To wit:
1) Ted (Keanu) is a wannabe rock star. So is Keanu. 2) Ted's image is one of a moron that somehow got lucky. Likewise for Keanu. 3) It took a mystical, magical phone booth to get Ted to learn how to play the guitar. It'll take a mystical, magical phone booth to get Keanu to play the bass. 4) Wild Stallions went nowhere. Dogstar is going down the same path.
So, in retrospect, it boggles the mind how a movie such as Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey was ever made. I mean, after their excellent adventure, who would have wanted an encore? Apparently, there must have been a need. It's all about supply and demand.
However, like a fine wine, this movie gets better with age. Wait! Let me justify myself. Bogus Journey is a stupid, stupid movie. In fact, this movie is SO bad, that it's funny. I mean, two slackers, being killed, "melvining" death, going to hell, going to heaven and then saving the planet? It was just HORRIBLE. Then again, the movie wasn't made for critical acclaim. It was made for laughs. Very stupid laughs. Now, having understood the fact that it was a very stupid movie, I rented it. It made it all the more enjoyable. Sometimes it fun not having to be challenged by a movie.
The only disadvantage is that you feel stupid at the cashier when you go to rent it. The person working the til will most undoubtably have a look of complete disgust that someone will have rented such a movie.
Of course, this doesn't take away the fact that it's still a bad movie. It might have been its purpose to be bad and therefore it had succeeded... but it's not THAT bad.Perhaps the only reason one would rent this movie is because they are out of shit to kill brain cells and are in need of something else.
