Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

Bill and Ted are killed by evil robots from the future. They try and find help until they end up in Hell. They escape by beating the Grim Reaper at a number of games, go to heaven, meet a brilliant scientist (Station), who builds them good robots. The good robots destroy the evil robots, but the evil robots' creator arrives who is quickly subdued by Bill and Ted, who spend a year (excluding that two-week medieval honeymoon) learning how to play the guitar. They put on a "jolly good show", and get famous.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Death and Bill are playing Twister, Bill's left hand was on red and his right hand was on green. In the next shot when Death is putting his foot on blue, Bills hands are switched. In the same scene Bill's shoes are on the floor. After he wins they walk over to Death and his shoes are back on. He never had time between all the dialog to put them on.

Trivia: Much of the guitar work done in this film was by guitar hero Steve Vai, who also worked on PCU and, perhaps more famously amongst guitarists, Crossroads. Pretty much all the guitar licks which are played throughout the film when Bill & Ted play air guitar are played by Steve, as well as "The Reaper Rap" - in the end credits.

Chosen answer: Kimberley Kates (who played Elizabeth in the first film) said in an interview on a B&T fan podcast that she and Diane Franklin were scheduled to reprise the roles, but then heard that they had been recast. She believed it was because the English director Peter Hewitt did not like English characters being played by American actresses.
