This sequel to the 1989 hit comedy actually manages to strike a few more comedic chords than its predecessor. One wouldn’t think that the no-brainer original would be worth repeating, but the story has actually been improved and the main characters are still as much fun. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are once again the dudes who are now in danger of death when a evil tyrant from the future creates clones of them and sends them back to the past to kill the originals. Bill and Ted navigate their way through time and even the afterlife in an effort to save themselves and all of humanity in the process. Some fun visual effects and great humour.
