Top Down Trailer of the Day: Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Bill and Ted

High school slackers Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) need to ace their history presentation in order to avoid military school and fulfill their true calling as rock stars who save civilization. With a little help from a time-traveling messenger from the future named Rufus (George Carlin), the boys gather up some historic figures like Napoleon and Socrates who offer the sort of insight into history that the boys are lacking. Co-written by Film Center instructor Chris Matheson, this hilarious trek through the ages is full of favorite lines like (spoiler alert): “You killed Ted, you medieval dickweed!” (90 mins.)
