It was only on my second viewing, years later, that I realized two things about this movie: 1) I enjoyed it immensely, and 2) that because its execution is decidedly sharper than the premise itself warrants.

Even the hammy final act of the movie isn't as bad as the first one, being generally heartwarming and enjoyable in its extremely cliché repertoire of family fun movie bliss.

I would call this the worst movie of 1991.

An entertaining film whichever way you choose to look at it.

" It's a pretty entertaining film and a rare case of a sequel bettering the original.

The whole movie is worth watching just to see the scenes where Death battles B&T in games of Battleship, Clue, and Twister.

Worth watching!

The story was darker and more complicated, and that's where this film failed in achieving the enjoyable entertainment of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

While the scenes with Death were funny and entertaining, the rest of the film lacked in so many areas.

The direction by Pete Hewitt is is terrific,with Hewitt bringing a nice visual stunning look to the film and always keeping the camera moving.

Bill & Ted's Boring Journey .

I don't remember much from the first film, which I saw many years ago, but I found this entry to be extremely enjoyable.

the cinematography is actually enjoyable, not cheesy, and relevant/effective in the scope of creating a visually striking film, one than carves into the mind long term, and one that contributes directly to the overall cinematic ensemble.

Keanu Reeves is totally hot in this movie too which also makes it worth watching!

While the first movie was fun and entertaining, this film tried too hard to be an actual movie.

but still as enjoyable as the original .

Sure, it's not as good as Excellent Adventure, but this sequel is still highly entertaining.

Much more funny and entertaining than the original.

I had laughed my way through the movie before it occurred to me to renew my initial protests--valleyspeak and loogies and airheadedness (even *good*-natured airheadedness) just aren't inherently funny, especially when drawn out to feature length.

They should have made this movie as fun loving and as entertaining as the original instead of trying to make a legitimate film.

and expectedly it turned out to be a boring dud.

While not able to live up to the comic genius of its predecessor, Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey is still a very enjoyable film.

Heaven is boring and dull and hell is fun.

Some the jokes are childish along with the slang, California dude accents and musical anecdotes can be tiresome, especially when Bill and Ted quote "Every Rose has it's Thorn" by Poison at the Gates of Heaven.

But it was surprisingly entertaining.

Unfortunately, the film severely lacks in charm which is one of the main elements that made the first installment enjoyable.

While the first "Bill and Ted" movie bore me, this was has entertainment value.

This is really one entertaining flick, and hasnt lost any of its appeal over time.

It's a pretty enjoyable movie, though mired in a lot of stereotypical time travel tropes.

In a great comedy pairing, Winter and Reeves excel to deliver delicious humour to the audience in this entertaining sequel.

I can't choose which film I prefer, both are incredibly entertaining and require several re-watches.

It's a enjoyable fantasy comedy.

It's not a terrible sequel, but one that's pretty forgettable and only worth watching if you are a hardcore fan of the first installment.

Adventure was made at the very end of the previous decade, where the clash of the '90s was already becoming visible (the bright clothing, punk attire, rock music, etc.). It was a perfect mix of '80s dopeheads and surfacing fashion that resulted in an enjoyable, and surprisingly witty and even thought-provoking, time-travel fable.

The film contains a breathtaking special effects ,adding a nice cinematography(Oliver Wood)and lively musical score(David Newman).

The first movie had some iffy dialogue and some weaker acting, but it seems like the team behind this got their stuff together for the sequel and put out a solid, thoroughly enjoyable, hilarious and creative comedy that will keep everyone on the edge of their seats the whole way through.

People give me grief about loving this movie, but only really pretentious movie-watchers will say it's not even a bit entertaining.

I love this film and have seen it over 20 times but I wouldn't recommended it for people over 18 as you might find it rather boring and pointless.

Bottom line: while still a little funny, it was a lot more boring than the first film.

Rating : Acceptable and entertaining in spite of the inspiration,magic and freshness had partially gone.

The first one was good but I found this to be funnier and more entertaining.

I loved Bill and Ted but I enjoyed it even more after seeing where some of its influences came from.

The Special Effects are Heavy Handed but Still an enjoyable sequel.

With the exception of "Barb Wire", this is probably one of the very worst movies I have had the misfortune to watch.

Daft and goofy but consistently amusing and enjoyable if you are in the mood .

Overall, this is a very enjoyable sequel.

If you are looking for a film full of multifaceted jokes, and totally mature humor, don't watch it; however, if you want a film that is humorous and silly, yet intelligent and engaging, you will enjoy it.

It had more laughs,and was more entertaining than the second one.

That said, this is an enjoyable little lark that never runs out of inventive twists.

Excellent Adventure was a fun and enjoyable movie, and two years its senior to Bogus Journey, I felt this film was just as fun and enjoyable.

Then there are "cash in" sequels - a film envisaged as a one-off is an unexpected hit and a sequel can therefore be justified in order to milk that unforeseen market a bit more.

The story is still engaging this time around, the script and gags have a lot of laughs, the film looks good especially with the set pieces which by the way are spectacular and the pacing and direction are efficient, while both Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves are very engaging and likable and I loved the references to the Seventh Seal as the duo battle the Grim Reaper.

It's bogus, but still entertaining .

A snappy pace.

While it is quite a bit different than the first and Bill and Ted may be just a shade dumber, "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey" still has all of the magic and fun that made the first one so enjoyable.

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves are once again very entertaining as Bill and Ted.

This time Bill and Ted have to travel through the afterlife 'Totally Bogus' and save humanity 'Excellent'With much of the same zany humour and some wonderful new characters like the grim reaper, station and robot Bill and Ted (stations creation) Bogus Journey once again entertains, and is worth watching for its soundtrack alone.

The fantasy genre is again spot on with the use of that amazing time travelling machine, though again somewhat confusing at points with the use of timing, and objects and situations being placed before it happens in the present, as is evident in the final couple of scenes.

(Side note: I found the first movie to be only sporadically entertaining--sightly different comic sensibilities there, it seems.

Definitely not as good as the original movie, but nonetheless still an entertaining movie -- you just have to close your mind.
