Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this follow up to Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure contains many of the airhead shenanigans as first movie. Evil androids trash an apartment, kidnap the inhabitants, and push them to their deaths -- all for comic effect. Much of the movie plays in Hell, where the guys meet Satan and face their fears. Expect some occasional language ("s--t" and "dick") and some sexualized female stereotypes.

Sexual Content

Androids try to force sex on teenage girls, but are unsuccessful. Lewd reference to being excited when a character sees a photo of a female.


Some gnarly robot behavior, including pulling skin apart to expose robot parts hidden underneath. Punching and a perilous fall that kills two main characters (who later come back as ghosts).


Occasional language including "s--thead," "hell," "damn," "dick," and an anti-gay slur.

Social Behavior

Bill and Ted are the biggest airheads in San Dimas, but it doesn't stop them from trying to be decent guys. The evil androids, who are trying to kill them, are malevolent and sexist.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Bill and Ted act like perpetual stoners, but they are not shown using drugs. It appears that Bill and Ted drink beer in a scene, though the cans are partially obscured.
