Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991)
My first encounter with Bill and Ted was the trailer for this movie, so I don't think I fully appreciated back then how ridiculous the whole premise of this film really was. In the first film Bill and Ted are approached by a time traveller who promises to help them with their history report. In this sequel thing go absolutely crazy and it almost feels like a plot spoiler considering how far it is into the film before this actually happens, but I think it's essentially implied by the title: Bill and Ted die and have to deal with becoming ghosts.
Last time around Bill and Ted were given essentially the dream of any up and coming band. There were informed that they would produce music that would be so influential and amazing that it would correct the course of history. So perhaps unsurprisingly, it's all very confusing for them in the beginning of this second movie when they still suck. (Their girlfriends from Medieval England are better musicians than they are.
