“All we are is dust in the wind dude!” Ted said to Socrates.
This fun 80’s movie kept a spirit of joy and lightheartedness throughout the whole series. As goofy as the idea was, the film had great appearances by the Late George Carlon and Keanu Reeves to name a few.
I have enjoyed watching this movie several times and the score and songs in the film are absolutely great and fitting for the time.
The movie was directed by Stephen Herek and the score was by David Newman along with many 80’s rock bands.
Here is the basic plot…Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are high school buddies starting a band. However, they are about to fail their history class, which means Ted would be sent to military school. They receive help from Rufus (George Carlin), a traveler from a future where their band is the foundation for a perfect society. With the use of Rufus’ time machine, Bill and Ted travel to various points in history, returning with important figures to help them complete their final history presentation.
You can also get the soundtrack on ITunes.
