Am I the only one annoyed at how stupid the line "This is proof of authenticity." is?

I love the basic concept that they've teased.  You were told you were going to save the world.  You were a super star.  Everyone knows you and loves you.  But you grew up, and you're just some loser. 

I think it has some potential to really say something. It could be the counterpoint to so many movies that only require the hero to endure a montage before becoming the best of the best.  It could be like the movie version of this article: https://www.cracked.com/blog/6-harsh-truths-that-will-make-you-better-person/

But it will probably just be the same stoner-esque movie that the originals were.

Looks good, but I was really hoping the line would be "Be excellent to each other."

I don't care if it even makes it to the screen, I just hope Lloyd Kaufman gets paid a lot of money as a producer. The guy has been working tirelessly for decades in the industry, doing his own thing and proud of it. His attitude towards his fans is the kind of real filmmaking love that we need more of. It's about time he gets some recognition outside his little niche audience, and some payoff.

The Bill and Ted movies aren't smart movies in any way, but the sequel managed to take an already loopy idea and just keep adding weirdness until you get a universe where the two rock stars that write the music that creates peace and harmony in the future are also friends with the Grim Reaper, have 2 alien buddies, "good" robot versions of themselves, have a time travelling phone booth, and are married to princesses. A lot of people are already calling this sequel unnecessary, and while I don't think we need to check up on that universe, I want to.

I like the idea. And using these characters to say something deeper is interesting. I just hope we don't spend the movie with the characters we loved, in fun goofy movie, all broken and changed too much. Then we get into Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi territory.

What's wrong with the Last Jedi? *leaves room*
