(2020) (Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves) (PG)
- 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.
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.
