- The Amazon rental is HD, though all the other streaming services include all resolutions through 4K UHD.
- If you rent the new Bill & Ted movie at Fandango Now, the service gives you a promo code with purchase that you can use to . Fandango Now has built a Movie Duos page with every buddy flick you can imagine, including both of the original Bill & Ted movies, as well as Bad Boys, Hot Fuzz, Thelma and Louise, The Blues Brothers and many others.
