We were supposed to unite the world in nerddom. According to George Carlin, a podcast created by Tansley and Agne will save reality as we know it, uniting humanity across all time. If only we could get it done in 90 minutes.
Good thing we have a time machine, because we’re going all the way back to 1989 in San Dimas, California (which looks conspicuously like the suburbs of Phoenix) to celebrate Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Then we’re cheating death, giving melvins to evil robot us-es and definitely not covering KISS as we dial up Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey from 1991.
And finally, we drop the old phone booth in the nightmarish hellscape of 2020. After a most unprecedented 29-year hiatus, Bill S. Preston, Esq., and “Ted” Theodore Logan are wild dads ready to unite the world against a most heinous dearth of new movie releases.
Reuniting an almost-too-Bill Alex Winter and a maybe-not-Ted-enough Keanu Reeves, Bill & Ted Face the Music shows us the inseparable slacker icons still struggling to fulfill their musical destiny (in maybe a little bit of a Bogus Journey retcon). And as their fairytale marriages near a breaking point, the future calls with a hard deadline.
So lick the Cheetos dust off your fingers and hop into your time machine — whether it looks like a vintage phone booth or a sleek adult massager — because we’ve got a band to assemble and a song to not technically steal.
Te adoro, Guillermo.
