Another '80s movie involving a time machine? No way dude, yes way! Meet Bill S. Preston Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan, the gnarliest doofuses of the '80s! Trouble comes their way when they are on the verge of failing out of school if they don't pass history class (which means military school for Ted). Since the two believe their future to be in a rock and roll band called the Wild Stallyns they simply can't be separated. They get some help from a visitor from the future named Rufus (I had a cat named Rufus when I was younger) who needs them to pass history because if that band isn't formed his future is doomed! Rufus has a time traveling phone booth so they can snatch historical figures from the past for their test so they can pass! It's stupid sure but in a good way, it's also very funny entertaining, especially for kids I'd think.

Availability:  On DVD
