Way cool, junior
Well thought out and executed “Cliff’s Notes” version of the duo’s adventures.
Perfect for school slackers who only have fifteen minutes to devote to film class.
A bit jumpy at times, but not too much so. Besides, one is literally propelled at breakneck speed to pay much attention to tiny flaws.
There is a palpable joie de vivre electricity in this edit which is infectious.
I like to imagine John Wick watching this during his more thoughtful moments.

Wayne was a good editor, and a FE asset, but I understood how the more professional world beckoned.
For the curious, Wayne’s pitch for Hitchhikers is still viewable.

Four score and...twelve minutes ago. We, your peers, embarked on a most tubular fanedit, conceived by our new friend wayneworkman12. A stirring soundtrack accompanies a nifty assembly of the historical icons with the occasional abruptness in narrative jumps, but it serves the story and cuts to the chase in one quick sitting. Could have possibly went for a half-hour trim but there you go. Be excellent to each edit, and party on dude

Totally tubular edit! This is basically the core of the film condensed into 15 minutes. It's no small feat and for the most part done seamlessly. It's hard for me to divorce myself of the source knowledge but I think this would still work and be decently funny. As a fan of the theatrical cut, this was a really fun, condensed alternate viewing. Good job!

A good effort at taking what amounts to "What if Doctor Who's protagonist was actually a pair of American slackers?" AKA Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and condensing it into a short film. Overall it works, but there were a couple of minor issues I couldn't help noticing - things like the new text for the title sequence not being quite the right colour, for example.

Narratively, I think it works, although it's to be expected that the film loses some of its charm by being distilled down to its core plot.

If you liked the original film, you'll almost certainly enjoy this version.

Nice work condensing Bill and Ted's into a short, its quite a feat. Obviously a lot of material is lost, but this short is hilarious nonetheless. A few rough transitions occasionally but nothing too distracting. Overall, this is a great edit to visit for fans and newcomers will find something enjoyable too. Great job wayne workman
