Bill & Ted Face the Music

The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Logan. Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle aged best friends set out on a new adventure when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe. Starring Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, Kristen Schaal, Samara Weaving.

“After, whoa, 30 years, Reeves and Winter return as the SoCal rockers for one more bodacious go at saving the world. So what if the movie is all over the place, this labor of fan-service love makes a most excellent cure for the heinous pandemic blues.” (Rolling Stone Magazine)

“The most successful quality of the film is how close it keeps in spirit and haphazard style to the first two installments, and how it feels proudly unstuck in time.” (Vulture)

“As wholesomely goofy as its heroes, Bill and Ted Face the Music is a rare long-belated sequel that largely recaptures the franchise’s original charm.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
