Top 5 Things Only Adults Notice In Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure!
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a classic film that the whole family can enjoy. Of course, there are plenty of jokes and concepts that fly over the heads of younger viewers. From historical implications to weird family dynamics, these are the things only adults notice in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
Over the course of this awesome film, Bill and Ted meet and befriend a number of major historical figures and bring them back to participate in their history report at San Dimas High School. Since the film is a comedy, it doesn’t spend a lot of time digging into the implications of this, but any adult who has even studied a little bit of history knows that there are many worth unpacking and some of them are pretty heavy.
For example, Bill and Ted bring back several icons who died suddenly and violently. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in the spring of 1865, Socrates was executed by forced poisoning in 399 BC, and Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431 before she reached her 20th birthday.
Again, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a comedy, and it’s also a movie that’s meant to portray history as a fun journey full of interesting stories. So, it makes sense that the film doesn’t dig too deep into what happens to these doomed individuals after they leave San Dimas. Although, the adults in the room know that Joan’s plan to institute an aerobics program for French soldiers probably isn’t going to work out.
