History’s about to be rewrit­ten by two guys who can’t even spell.

B&TMEC-bluThe biggest con­cern for Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Alex Winter) and Ted “Theodore” Logan (Keanu Reeves), two total­ly excel­lent dudes from San Dimas, California, has been that their band, the Wyld Stallyns, “will nev­er be a super band until we have Eddie Van Halen on gui­tar.” But now they’re on the verge of fail­ing his­to­ry class, and Ted’s father is threat­en­ing him with mil­i­tary school. To keep the Wyld Stallyns togeth­er, and save the future, they need to deliv­er an epic his­to­ry report, so a mes­sen­ger named Rufus (George Carlin) arrives in a time trav­el­ing phone booth to help them out. As they trav­el through his­to­ry they pick up some new friends, like the “Bodacious Philosopher” Socrates, “One Very Excellent Barbarian” Genghis Khan, the “Short Dead Dude” Napoleon and “Noah’s Wife” Joan of Arc, and put on one out­ra­geous pre­sen­ta­tion.

 

In the sequel Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, the daffy duo trav­el to Heaven, Hell and points in between as they meet robot ver­sions of them­selves, Albert Einstein, the Easter Bunny, and beat the Grim Reaper at a video game. Bogus Journey fea­tures an all-star cast includ­ing Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), Alex Winter, George Carlin, William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption), and Pam Grier (Jackie Brown). At the time of its release, Roger Ebert described the film as “a riot of visu­al inven­tion and weird humor that works on its cho­sen sub-moron­ic lev­el, and on sev­er­al oth­ers as well, includ­ing some fair­ly sophis­ti­cat­ed ones.” In oth­er words, not bogus at all, dudes.

 

Bill & Ted’s Most Excellent Collection is part of Shout! Factory’s new home enter­tain­ment series Shout Select, which shi­nes a light on films that deserve a spot on your shelf. Debuting this August, Shout Select boasts an excit­ing slate of fan-favorite releas­es mak­ing their Blu-ray debuts.  Titles include the pulp sci-fi rom-com clas­sic The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension, John Carpenter’s Emmy Award® -nom­i­nat­ed biopic Elvis, the bril­liant action-com­e­dy Midnight Run, and the row­dy action-thriller Road House.
