Bill And Ted 25 Years On!

Recommended Posts

http://www.theguardian.com/film/2014/apr/17/bill-and-ted-25th-birthday-party-on

Of all the delightfully improbable scenarios depicted in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure – from Napoleon Bonaparte causing havoc on a waterslide to Billy the Kid and Socrates (aka "So-crayts", of course) picking up chicks in a California mall to George Carlin acting in a film alongside Keanu Reeves and

By the time Bill & Ted was released in 1989, the 80s teen film explosion was starting to taper out. Heathers, which came out in 1987, had so deftly satirised the conventions of the genre (and particularly of John Hughes's films) that teen films were losing their Hughesian innocence and becoming instead laden with self-conscious irony, leading to the 90s trend of remaking classic literature with teenagers (Clueless, 10 Things I Hate About You, She's All That).

Few who were around then would have bet that a goofy movie about a pair of California metalheads skipping back through time in a phonebox collecting historical characters to bring back to 20th-century California for their history report would still be remembered today. But I am very much among those few.

Only God can "promote" you, and I'm not looking for that just yet!
