  • 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.

    Not excellent maybe, but by no means bogus either, this cheerful Bill & Ted threequel brings the story of our two laidback heroes up to the melancholy autumn of their middle age.

    For fans, the pair's all-round lameness has always been a large part of their charm. The contrast between their slow reaction speeds and the extreme wackiness of their adventures were an essential part of the package but the formula hasn't worn well.

    Bill & Ted Face the Music is the best kind of nostalgia trip -- seeped in the lore but unafraid to shake up the rules, mixing new characters with beloved mainstays, and not overstaying its welcome at a tight ninety minutes. Party on, dudes.
