Life Lessons Learned from Bill & Ted Face the Music
Sky: If you want someone to succeed, give them all the info you can.
- The Great Leader tells them that Preston and Logan will compose the song to unite all of reality. Sure, it adds suspense and doesn’t give everything away to the audience, but if you truly want Bill & Ted to succeed, then give them the song, the band members and tell them of their daughter’s role.
They’re still the fun-loving, music playing, earnest best friends we’ve always loved.
Dusty: Be excellent to each other.
- This is a simple yet valuable idea that we can use more of nowadays.
Death returns… lovin’ it.
Sky: Be a role model to your kids.
- Kids emulate what they see, and if you do it, they’ll do it. Pick up your dog’s poop, don’t cheat or lie, pay your taxes and work hard. If you lie, cheat, steal and beat your spouse, they’ll turn out the same way.
Dusty: Train a child in the way they should go and when they are older they will not depart from it.
- This is taken from the Bible and fits right along with Sky’s life lesson above.
Excellent future versions of B&T.
