Movie Summary

Peter Hewitt

Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey follows excellent duo, Ted "Theodore" Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq., as they tackle their evil robotic clones, being sent to Hell, and competing against the Grim Reaper as they try to make it back to Earth to compete in the Fourth Annual San Dimas Battle of the Bands. Sometime in the future, Chuck De Nomolos manages to steal the traveling phone booth in a bid to remove Bill and Ted's potential peaceful influence on the future. Replacing the two with killer robots, the two find themselves launched directly to hell where they have to face some of the worst horrors known to man, like the Easter Bunny, an evil kissing grandmother, and a drill sergeant, in order to fight their way back to Earth. With the help of Death, can Bill and Ted make it in time to stop De Nomolos from ruining the future?
