Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Verbal Diorama

17-08-2023 • 46 mins

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure almost wasn’t so excellent. Its original plot had to be changed during shooting, a major role was left uncast until the last minute, its original ending was abandoned for being, honestly, most heinous, and its production company went bankrupt during post-production.

But, just like the movie, its ending was most triumphant. Bill and Ted would pass their history report, form Wyld Stallyns, and their music would create utopia on Earth. The movie would become cemented in 80s comedy, for not being totally bogus and giving us two of cinema's most bodacious heroes, as well as two sequels.

Not to mention, it invented the internet (sort of!) and highlights the power of non-traditional scholastic education.

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes!

I would love to hear your thoughts on Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure !
