Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020)

Dean Parisot directs Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and Brigette Lundy-Paine in this legacy sequel to the time travelling dudes movies from your youth.

The ultimate “I like what they did there” movie. Every scene you think to yourself “I like what they did there.” Not love though… as an entertainment this isn’t particularly thrilling, coherent or funny. It gets by on heart and nostalgia. Jesus only knows what non-converts would make of it. But seeing a creaky but enthused Reeves and Winter share the spotlight again is its own reward, Sadler’s Death steals the show and whoever Brigette Lundy-Paine is, she deserves an Oscar. More Bogus Journey than Excellent Adventure but that’s O.K.
