    There's nothing bogus about this locomotivated follow-up; it's a truly excellent adventure, hilariously inventive, greased-lightning paced and dumb-bunny brilliant.
  2. Reviewed by: Lloyd Bradley
    One of the most worthwhile sequels of recent years, maybe funnier than the original as it intelligently expands the potential for the surreal and it ties up all the loose ends managing, quite remarkably, to give pointlessness a purpose.
  3. A most excellent sequel, funnier and livelier than the original.
  4. 75
    A riot of visual invention and weird humor that works on its chosen sub-moronic level, and on several others as well, including some fairly sophisticated ones.

    In the middle of this confident retread, the director, Peter Hewitt, and the writers, Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, sandwich something far more free and funny--a slapstick version of "The Seventh Seal" in which Bill and Ted play games with Death.
  6. Amusing but sloppy and overcomplicated.

    These guileless airheads with the outrageous vocabulary are obviously a beloved creation, and filmmakers might have gotten more mileage if they'd rooted their adventure a bit more in reality.
  8. If any character steals Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, it's the Grim Reaper, who, as played by William Sadler, keeps smirking with pleasure at the chance to loosen up.

    Inferior retread.

    Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey isn't much of a trip. In a word...NOT!!!

    The boys return intact for another adventure. Creative in spots (Death is good), but it's just not the compelling presentation its predecessor was. Full Review »
