Woah. I never expected to see Bill & Ted again, but here we are. In the midst of all the chaos the world is going through, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter offer a tiny bit of hope as they reprise their 1980’s characters that made them famous. “Face the Music” is the first sequel since 1992’s “Bogus Journey”, and as someone who grew up watching their films on TV, I was looking forward to their third (and hopefully not last) outing. Look, the film itself won’t bring in any new fans, so don’t expect miracles. It will, however, bring together their old fanbase and give them something worth cheering for. Bill and Ted are now in their 50’s, and they must time-travel yet again in order to save the world. There’s a lot going on here (even if it doesn’t seem like it at first), and not all the jokes are memorable. But Reeves and Winter are memorable enough to make this a trip worth taking. Old characters make a comeback, as they should, and you simply can’t resist the chemistry between the two leads. “Face the Music” is not the best comedy you’ll see this year, but it will most definitely leave you with a silly smile on your face. Most excellent, dudes!
