"The other reviewer is relying on childhood memories of the two films. Excellent Adventure is a great film, and when the second film came out, it did not have the time machine and the historical dudes from the first movie, so it felt too different than the first. Not many people cared for it, but I have been showing these films to my nieces and nephews for years now and the complete consensus is that the second film is a better film than the first. The writing is just as good and the film moves along quite well. The two films feel quite different, but this is a good thing. They did a time travel movie already, so they went on to something else. It works! Bogus Journey is a very funny film that needs to have a second look by fans of the first. Just keep in mind that it is not about time travel and historical dead dudes.
I have both the original DVDs, but I am reordering this collection for the extras.
Extras on these discs include: The Original Bill & Ted: In Conversation With Screenwriters: Chris Matheson & Ed Solomon The Most Triumphant Making-Of Documentary Score! An Interview With Guitarist Steve Vai Hysterical Personages: Biographies of Nine Historical Dudes and One Babe Dressed as a Dude One Sweet and Sour Chinese Adventure To-Go - Episode of the Cartoon The Linguistic Stylings of Bill & Ted And Radio Spots "

"I was very excited when I got this DVD set for Christmas 2006! It was all I hoped for, because I have loved watching the Bill and Ted movies before!
Anybody should know who Bill and Ted are;
Bill and Ted are two most excellent dudes that go on time travel adventures! Bill S. Preston Esquire is played by Alex Winter and Ted 'Theodore' Logan is played by Keanu Reeves!
In Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Bill and Ted have to pass their history report in high school. On top of that, Ted's dad is threatening to send him to military school. Then they'll never start their band, Wyld Stylns, talk about bogus!
Never fear dudes, the time traveling dude Rufus is here; played by the comedian George Carlin. Rufus helps Bill and Ted them out by letting them travel through time in a time traveling phone booth... so they can collect historical figures, like Napoleon, Joan of Arc, and So-crates for their history report.
It's an outstanding movie, but don't leave out Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.
In the sequel; Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, Bill and Ted are trying to get their band, Wyld Stylns into the Battle of the Bands. On top of that, they want to propose to their princesses! But trouble is a foot, in the disquise of Evil Robot Bill and Ted; who have orderes from a non-henious dude named De Nomolos to kill Bill and Ted.
Bill and Ted wind up plumeting to their deaths, and now have to travel through hell. Bill and Ted will have to unlist the help of the Grim Reaper, but first have to beat him in a board game. They come back to life, and then with the help of a martian scientist, Bill and Ted comfront the evil robot Bill and Ted, and also De Nomolos at the Battle of the Bands.
This DVD set comes with both movies, with the best high definition sound enhancement. On top of that, there's a most excellent bonus disc with special features.
Some of these special features include; a conversation with the creators of Bill and Ted, a how to speak like Bill and Ted, an interview with Steve Vai who worked on the soundtracl's score, an air guitar session with two air guitar professionals, and my personal favorite... the debut of the first Bill and Ted cartoon episode, (which is just as excellent to watch as both movies)!
If anyone, who is anyone who loves Bill and Ted, then you should definately get this DVD set; because it's most excellent! So be excellent to each other, and party on dudes!"

"I saw Bill and Ted as a teen-ager. Now my 14 year-old son and pre-teen kids love it. Their friends have come over and seen these movies and really enjoyed them, too. They are clean movies and are different enough from everything else, it keeps kids entertained."

"In this phone booth looking collector's case are the two Bill & Ted movies and a bonus disc containing a conversation with the writers, an episode of the cartoon, instructions on how to play the air guitar with two world champions, interviews with writers-directors-stars, and some other "non-bogus" stuff, including hints at what might be a third Bill & Ted movie."
