Creativity is sometimes underrated when it comes to achievement. We can take the straight, narrow and predictable path to achievement, or we can be creative when opportunity knocks.
In Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989), Bill (Alex Preston) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are a couple of what seems to be underachieving teenagers. If they do not pass a history report, they will both fail high school and be separated when Ted is shipped off to military school. When Rufus (George Carlin), a man from the future, offers the boys a chance to travel through history and bring back to the present the subjects of the history report, Bill and Ted jump at the chance.
While Bill and Ted appear to be the typical stoner/surfer teenage boys with next to nothing banging around between their ears, in reality they are very smart. This movie is very funny and I think a little underrated when it comes to high school movies.
I recommend it.
