Like, the first is about as good of a Screwball Comedy you can come up without showing anyone getting blackout drunk or excessively high, and the second one is... actually a very thoughtful meditation on the meaning of life itself, disguised as a Screwball Comedy. I don't know if I'd say it was "better", but it definitely aimed much higher and completely hit the mark.

The Marvel comic book series, by the way? Glorious. Still one of the funniest things I've ever read. I even have the comic based on Bill & Ted's personal favorite super-hero, the Fight-Man one-shot ("Cuz ONE SHOT Is All He Needs!" ). Track it down if you can.
I need to rewatch "Bogus Journey." As a kid I loved all sorts of bad movies, or movies that I watch now and can't stand... but I remember implicitly NOT liking that. Like, at all.
