I need to rewatch the first 2 for the 256th time. I haven't seen them in at least 20 years.

I love the movies, even read the comic series they were doing. (eh... :wave: ) I wonder how the jokes would hold up to someone new.

Quote:
There have been rumors of a third Bill and Ted movie for quite some time, but now it's been officially confirmed that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will reunite for another adventure almost 30 years after the first film was released.

According to the press release, original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Mosaic, Now You See Me) have written the script, while Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Red 2, Fun With Dick and Jane) has been confirmed to direct. Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an EP alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr. and John Santilli.

“We couldn't be more excited to get the whole band back together again," said Reeves and Winter. "Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we've got a dream team!"

In addition to this bodacious news, we have a synopsis which provides us with a great outline of the plot:

Spoiler: show
"Bill & Ted Face the Music will see the duo long past their days as time-traveling teenagers and now weighed down by middle age and the responsibilities of family. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, they find much, much more than just a song."

I tried to watch the original a few weeks ago and only lasted about five minutes. During their first scene, flabbergasted by the absolutely unbearable valley accents, I turned to my wife and asked, “Is the whole movie going to be like this?”

Don’t be a snob.

About accents anyways.

You’ll probably never appreciate these films. Before your time n all.

Yeah, that's a really weird thing to get hung up on from a film that is set in the Valley during that time period. You want truth in your art, that's pretty much the truthiest.

There’s a way to do this that would be funny/clever instead of completely obnoxious

Most ‘80s comedies have aged terribly

Maybe it's because I've been a fan of the movie since it was released but I find the accents hilarious. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You missed quite the collection of gay slurs by not continuing on to the sequel.

Can't say these movies did anything for me back in the day. I'm happy for the Bill & Ted fans though.

I watched them both again a few months ago and definitely noticed that. Kind of odd how hard the writers went in on it.

I guarantee that there will be a line in the early half of the 2nd sequel whereby one of the lead characters makes a fairly benign homosexual slur/joke, and someone (most likely the other lead character) makes a responding joke about how you can't joke about that anymore. Then the other one will refer to the homosexual sounding nature of the response joke, and then the 2nd lead character will make another joke about inappropriateness of the 1st lead character's 2nd joke, and then... oh well, fuck it,... nevermind
