BILL AND TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE (1989) ** ½

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter star as two dense Valley guys who have to pass their history report.  George Carlin is Rufus, a cool dude from the future who travels through time in a phone booth to help them.  They use the phone booth to kidnap famous historical figures (Socrates, Billy the Kid, Joan of Arc, Genghis Khan, etc.) to use in their elaborate report.  It starts off pretty funny, but way too much time is spent on the medieval segment and with the bumbling Napoleon.  The duo returned in the much better Bogus Journey, two years later.  Also starring Dan (Tron) Shor, Jane (The Go-Go’s) Wiedlin and Bernie (Spies Like Us) Casey.  Directed by Stephen (Critters) Herek.
