Not quite killer, but itís rare to see a 21st-century blockbuster having this much fun Ė right through to its sign-off Ė with its premise."

Bill & Ted Face the Music: "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.

Alex Winter is Bill Ė and heís eerily the same Ė and Keanu Reeves is Ted; though with that dark mop of hair framing his now rather Easter-Island-stern face, Ted looks more forbidding to me, as if carrying the baggage of Neo (from Matrix) and hitman John Wick. But with his weirdly lovable awkward gestures, Ted clearly still has no idea how or why to move his arms. Like the other two films, this is written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, and the director is Dean Parisot, renowned for the sci-fi comedy classic Galaxy Quest.


Itís amiably amusing, and Bill and Tedís Peter Pannish inability to accept the ageing process is enjoyably surreal, with a weird tinge of not-entirely-intentional tragedy. The failure to give Weaving and Lundy-Paine anything really funny to do is a problem; but all the cast are likable, and itís a sweet-natured journey backwards and forwards down memory lane.
might just be the reviews i see, they seem to have multiply reviews for stuff was that negative one i posted and found another parsing it, a lot of reviews like that, mind cant remember the guys name but one guy seems to hate everything.

mind not that fond of the guradian in the whole just as bad as rags like the express and daily mail
