BILL AND TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY (1991) ***

An evil overlord (Lethal Weapon 2’s Joss Ackland) sends two robot duplicates to kill and replace Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves).  They go to Hell (“We’ve been totally lied to by our album covers!”), outsmart Death (Die Hard 2’s William Sadler) at Battleship, and get a Martian scientist named Station to build good robots to fight the bad ones.  In the end the world is saved while Kiss sings God Gave Rock n’ Roll to You.  It’s smarter, funnier and all around better than the first movie.  The highlights include Ted possessing his dad, a really long fall into Hell and a game of celebrity charades in Heaven.  Look fast for Sadler in a cameo sans make-up.  Also starring George Carlin, Primus, and Pam Grier in a nothing role.  Reeves and Sadler also appeared in Winter’s directorial debut, Freaked.
