Diane Franklin shares a photo from Bill & Ted’s alternate ending
June 27th, 2019 under Diane Franklin, Keanu Reeves. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1989 when Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure ended, Rufus (the late George Carlin) brought the medieval Princesses forward in time to be with the leads (and do 69, what?). However, that was not the original ending.

Last year, when Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon talked about the legendary film (and my personal favorite) to Entertainment Weekly, they let us know that was not how the film really ended.

Bill S. Preston, Esquire revealed the true ending was, “We just bring the historical figures back to our classroom. And Keanu just sat on the desk, and watched them kind of talk about who they were. Then we’d go to the prom, and that’s the end. Even while we were shooting it, we were kind of depressed.” Therefore, after much thought, they reshot it and it ended the way we know it as.

I do not remember seeing any video or pictures from that original ending. However, that all changed today because Bodacious Babe Diane Franklin aka Princess Joanna shared a photo of them going to the prom. I love that the Wyld Stallyns wore tuxes with long shorts, tube socks and sneakers. It is very Bill & Ted. Kind of wish we got to see them five of them like that 30 years ago. Anyone else feeling old because this movie is that old?

Still no word if Franklin and Kimberley Kates will reprise their roles Bill & Ted Face the Music. It will be totally bogus if they are not especially because they still look just as beautiful. I mean how can you have their daughters without their moms?

Although, I still don’t believe the third movie is happening. Until someone posts a photo from the first day of filming, I will remain cautiously optimistic. Then after they post it, I am so going to stalk production.

UPDATE: Even though the movie is bringing back so many other actors from the original movies, they have decided to recast the Princess. I call BS on that. That was a wrong decision.


Diane Franklin might have the best title for an autobiography
March 5th, 2019 under Diane Franklin. [ Comments: none ]

Diane Franklin wrote a book about growing up and working in Hollywood for 40 years, and she gave it a most excellent title. She called it, “The Excellent Adventures of the Last American, French-Exchange Babe of the 80s.”

Don’t understand why it is so perfect? It is a combination of her biggest movies Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, The Last American Virgin and Better Off Dead. Three movies that every teenager should see as a rite of passage.

The only complaint I have about her book is its price. Shouldn’t it be $2? Don’t get that, then you are deprived because you have never seen Better Off Dead.


Is Diane Franklin really 56 years old?
November 5th, 2018 under Are they really their age?, Diane Franklin. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1982, Diane Franklin became the subject of boys’ fantasies when she starred in The Last American Virgin. Now 36 years later, she is still doing tempting men as she wears a bikini on the beach. Can you believe she is 56 because she sure does not look like it?

The sweet princess from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure has a very sweet body no matter what year she is in. So much so, it would make John Cusack think he is not Better Off Dead.

The actress still looks as good today as when she played the sister in Amityville II: The Possession, also in 1982. On November 13th, she will be telling the Lutzes story again in The Amityville Murders, but this time she will be playing the mother.


BTWF: Diane Franklin for Soft n’ Pretty
July 17th, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Diane Franklin. [ Comments: none ]

Before Diane Franklin was the soft and pretty French exchange student in Better Off Dead, she was flirting with a guy while discussing Soft n’ Pretty toilet paper. How cute was the 17-year-old in that 1979 commercial?

BTW I wonder if it sold for $2 back then because I want my $2!


Diane Franklin returns to Amityville!
July 16th, 2018 under Diane Franklin, Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1982, Diane Franklin starred in Amityville II: The Possession as Ronald DeFeo’s sister. Now, over 35 years later, she is returning to that infamous house to star in The Amityville Murders, but this time she is playing his mom. Burt Young, who played her dad in the first film, also has a role in this film that comes out later this year.

If you don’t the story before there was there was The Amityville Horror about the Lutzes, there was Ronald DeFeo who murdered his whole family in that house just before they moved in. The 1982 movie was a loosely based on those murders and this film is actually telling that family’s story leading up to the fateful night November 13, 1974.

After watching the trailer below, I cannot wait to see it. It looks even scarier than all the documentaries based on the house and the paranormal that investigated it.

BTW Amityville 2 is on Tubi TV and you can watch it for free. If you do watch it, you will see that Franklin has not really aged a day since then.
