There are reasons why Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure is one of my most favourite movies ever. Sure, it’s the cinematic equivalent of the least genetically blessed lovechild of a dimestore novel and everything terrible about the eighties, but it holds a certain je ne sais quoi. I literally Do. Not. Know. What.
A few possibilities echo through my mind, metacortexually (yes, it’s a word I just made up, but go with it):
- I really want to see a spin-off sitcom with Billy the Kid and Socrates as roommates a la the Odd Couple.
- I love how two ridiculously stupid stoner kids can throw out such eloquent verbiage as: “Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.”
- I think they really, really, really – and I mean, really – nailed Napoleon’s character, especially with how he cheats at bowling.
Thanks to Janin for getting the above image for me after I fruitlessly scoured all that Google images could barf up yesterday. You rule.
