DATE VIEWED: 04/15/2015


FORMAT: LaserDisc

TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 1 hour 39 minutes

DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 22 miles

TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 1543.3 miles

SYNOPSIS: Two rock and roll slackers must rescue their girlfriends from two evil robots that are impersonating them.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: I watch these films so you won’t make the same mistake.  There was a time in the early 1990s, when rock and roll hair bands were popular. Thank goodness those time are over.

PROS AND CONS: Pros?  There really aren't any.   A slacker movie for slackers who like slacker movies.  The film has no real plot and no real acting.  There are lots of sight gags and inside jokes.  

It was interesting to learn that the ongoing skit on Saturday Night Live called “Wayne’s World” with Mike Meyers and Dana Carvy was pretty much lifted from this movie series (the first installment being Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure).

The concept of time travel, death, the afterlife, resurrection, battling robots, culminating in a Battle of the Hair bands pretty much sums up where this film goes.  I have a hard time envisioning who the target audience for this film was, since I was never really into Twisted Sister and Kiss.  

To read an overview of this project, check out the initial post for this series.

This film is a part of my LaserDisc Collection.

Clicking on the title will take you to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) entry for this film. 

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
