I loved this movie as a kid. My brother and I rented it over and over and cracked up at Bill and Ted's lovable dopiness and the of notion historical figures having a blast at a modern shopping mall.
When I watch it now, though, I notice other things. Like the fact that the only female historical figure important enough for them to include in their report was Joan of Arc, who Ted and Bill initially thought was "Noah's wife". Or the giggling and helpless damsel-in-distress princesses in need of rescue from their arranged marriages, and how they show up later in modern clothing beaming over having been introduced to malls and credit cards.
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure came out in 1989, but we can't delude ourselves into thinking that comedies about historical figures have moved beyond female tokenism in the last twenty years. Night at the Museum features only Sacajawea, and its current sequel Battle of the Smithsonian makes due with Amelia Earhart. So much for progress.
