I still harbor a soft a spot for Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, some 22 years after watching it on home video approximately five times in a row over the course of a single weekend. Bill and Ted is a tale so ingrained my generation's consciousness that I've actually seen people online accuse Doctor Who of ripping it off.
A great adventure flick in its own right, Bill and Ted propels its heroes from ancient Greece to Napoleonic France to an extended visit to the knight n' castles peril of the Middle Ages. Sure, the film is starting to show its age – Bill and Ted seem like archetypes frozen in the time and place of the movie's creation. Yet, Bill Ted's Excellent Adventure is second only to Back to the Future as the quintessential time travel comedy.
