This month, the brilliant time travel slacker comedy Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure turns 25. While all the other responsible guys out there might be trying to choose a Nicholas Sparks movie to watch with their beloved, I will always lean towards this endearing classic. (As I learned then from my 1989 girlfriend, this was not an ideal choice for a Valentine’s Day movie.) Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure managed to help define the ’80s in film, even though it came out in the last year of the decade. Even more miraculous, the film had nothing to do with John Hughes, who seemed to almost single-handedly build the ’80s cinema playlist. It also helped make Keanu Reeves a household name before The Matrix galvanized him as an action star 10 years later. With rumors of a possible Bill & Ted 3 continuously swirling around the interwebs, it’s a great time to look back at the time travel exploits of these two metalheads. Even with all the elements that seem to date it in the past (like pudding cups from a tin can, tape recorders, CDs from the future and phone booths), it’s still a watchable film with some seriously excellent moments in it, as we highlight below. Party on, dudes!

Ever since Keanu Reeves intimated that he was into the idea of doing a third Bill & Ted movie, it’s been pretty hard to focus on anything other than how awesome it would be to see him and Alex Winter get back together to play the adult versions of their dim-bulb, metalhead characters. So, we should all thank Coming Soon for compiling a couple of reassuring quotes that point to the fact that Bill & Ted 3 might be entering production sooner rather than later. First, Reeves mentioned the prospective project once again while doing an interview with The Independent. When asked about the long-rumored third film he replied, “Yeah, we have a script. We’re trying to put it together. It’s a good script too.” That’s encouraging, but not too different from things we’ve heard about this one before. The second uncovered quote points to the fact that a third excellent adventure is one step closer to becoming a reality, however. When asked about the movie on Twitter, Alex Winter responded to a fan and former Bill & Ted extra by saying, “Script done? Check. -We love it? Check. -Green light? Working on it!”

The best hope for the brutal future our world faces is another Bill and Ted movie. Since this is self-evident, there’s no need to debate it or explain it, and Keanu Reeves is delivering just a glimmer of hope for a brighter tomorrow. In a recent interview, he claimed that he’d love to revisit the character and work with Alex “Bill S. Preston, Esq.” Winter again. After throwing out strange ideas like filming the movie in black and white with a dash of 3D and having multiple directors (specifically Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Werner Herzog), it apparently never dawned on Reeves why another sequel (which should have been called Bill and Ted Go To White Castle) just can’t happen: George Carlin is no longer with us. The hopes for the future are dashed again. But seriously, everyone wants this thing, right? [MTV]

Profanity is no longer a problem in today’s society. Instead of the censors clipping around real swear words, they’re on the look-out for the new seven dirty words, the heavy seven that will infect your soul, curve your spine and keep the country from winning the war on terror.
