Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A painfully inept comedy. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Sep 16, 2014

Fresh: Reeves, with his beguilingly blank face and loose-limbed, happy-go-lucky physical vocabulary, and Winter, with his golden curls, gleefully good vibes and 'bodacious' vocabulary, propel this adventure as long as they can. – Variety Staff, Variety, Sep 16, 2014

Fresh: A totally excellent film. – Film4, Oct 22, 2014

Fresh: This is extremely silly, good natured, superficial stuff; a lot depends on whether you take to Bill and Ted's unique lingo (which contorts surfers' expressions) and their gormless behaviour. – Colette Maude, Time Out, Sep 16, 2014

So stupid it's amazing

This has to be the, pardon my grammar, stupidest movie I have ever seen, but that's what makes it so funny! The acting and everything is horrible, but it's supposed to be because that's what makes it so funny.
