QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Two middle-aged men once again use time travel while attempting to write a song that will not only save the world, but also all of reality.
PLOT:

Nearly twenty-five-years ago, Bill (ALEX WINTER) and Ted (KEANU REEVES) were two idiotic teenagers who ended up traveling through time to work on a history report and ended up tasked with writing a song that would unite and save the world. All of these years later, they're still trying, and their rock band, Wild Stallyns, has slowly disappeared into obscurity.

All of which -- plus the men's inability to separate themselves from each other in personal matters -- has put a strain on their marriages to Joanna (JAYMA MAYS) and Elizabeth (ERINN HAYES). But their teenage daughters, Thea (SAMARA WEAVING) and Billie (BRIGETTE LUNDY-PAINE), have clearly inherited their nerdy love for music.

All of them are thrown for a loop when the adult daughter, Kelly (KRISTEN SCHAAL), of their former time travel coordinator shows up and takes them to the year 2720 where they're informed by Kelly's mother that they only have until 7:17 p.m. back in their present to write the aforementioned song or else reality will cease to exist.

Realizing their long-standing failure to produce the song won't change in a matter of hours, the two head into the future to find their future selves and return with the successful song. At the same time, their daughters travel back in time to recruit a backup band composed of famous musicians to help with the matter.

With time running out and while having to contend with a robot, Dennis Caleb McCoy (ANTHONY CARRIGAN), who's been sent to kill them, along with yet another encounter with the Grim Reaper (WILLIAM SADLER), Bill and Ted race against time to get and perform the pivotal song before it's too late.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first two "Bill & Ted" movies they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
