Despite the blockbusters and cult favorites, Bill and Ted will always be your preferred Keanu Reeves film. It’s the one that had you racing home to cut his face out of every magazine you could find, the one that asserted, once and for all, that San Dimas high school football rules. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure will always hold a place in your heart, high above the other fine (snort) performances Keanu has turned in. It’s a film that is good simply because a) Keanu Reeves is hot and b) it’s endlessly, endlessly quotable, with something for damn near any situation. Guy in an SUV cuts you off? He’s obviously a medieval dickweed. Something weird going on? Strange things are afoot at the Circle K. Need to mediate a fight between the kids? Tell ’em to be excellent to each other. And so on. You don’t even need an excuse to see it again, but because it’s showing in the Inwood Theater, 5458 W. Lovers Lane, at midnight on Saturday, and playing into the early hours of Sunday morning, you’ve got the perfect excuse to appreciate Keanu and quote every quotable gem this, um, classic has to offer. Tickets are $10 at landmarktheatres.com.
