    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A riot of visual invention and weird humor that works on its chosen sub-moronic level, and on several others as well, including some fairly sophisticated ones. show more

    One of the most worthwhile sequels of recent years, maybe funnier than the original as it intelligently expands the potential for the surreal and it ties up all the loose ends managing, quite remarkably, to give pointlessness a purpose. show more

    Steve Davis Austin Chronicle

    Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey isn't much of a trip. In a word...NOT!!! show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    If any character steals Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, it's the Grim Reaper, who, as played by William Sadler, keeps smirking with pleasure at the chance to loosen up. show more

    Hal Hinson Washington Post

    There's nothing bogus about this locomotivated follow-up; it's a truly excellent adventure, hilariously inventive, greased-lightning paced and dumb-bunny brilliant. show more

    Desson Thomson Washington Post

    A most excellent sequel, funnier and livelier than the original. show more

    The New Yorker

    In the middle of this confident retread, the director, Peter Hewitt, and the writers, Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, sandwich something far more free and funny--a slapstick version of "The Seventh Seal" in which Bill and Ted play games with Death. show more

    Elvis Mitchell The New York Times

    Amusing but sloppy and overcomplicated. show more

  • 50

    These guileless airheads with the outrageous vocabulary are obviously a beloved creation, and filmmakers might have gotten more mileage if they'd rooted their adventure a bit more in reality. show more
