Overview

Based on the Saturday Night Live sketch of the same name, Wayne's World is a wacky, irreverent pop-culture comedy about the adventures of two amiably aimless metal-head friends, Wayne Mike Myers and Garth Dana Carvey. From Wayne's basement, the pair broadcast a talk-show called "Wayne's World" on local public access television. The show comes to the attention of a sleazy network executive Rob Lowe who wants to produce a big-budget version of "Wayne's World"--and he also wants Wayne's girlfriend, a rock singer named Cassandra Tia Carrere. Wayne and Garth have to battle the executive not only to save their show, but also Cassandra. Director Penelope Spheeris, Myers and Carvey hang a lot of silly, but funny, jokes on this thin plot, and the energy of the cast--as well as the wild pop-culture references--make Wayne's World a cut above the average Saturday Night Live spin-off movie.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Wayne's World marked the big-screen emergence of one of the silliest comic sensibilities of the 1990s, Saturday Night Live's Mike Myers. Myers co-wrote the film, and while Wayne's World shares the absurd, nonsensical punning of a comedy such as Airplane! (1980), it has an irreverence and good nature all its own. Director Penelope Spheeris gives sequences time to develop -- unlike the standard rapid-fire approach in most comedies -- and as a result, the bits gain a loose, bizarre, and almost self-referential quality that intensifies the laughs. This kind of mocking, joke-within-a-joke style would become Myers' trademark. In the lead role, the comedian is vulnerable enough to make his character's foibles endearing, and his squirmy, gleeful charm is both believable and funny.

    Greatest Movie Ever Made?

    This is one of the greatest movies of all time. Penelope Spheeris is such a great director. The movie was shot in about 32 days and still Mike myers finds his way to improvise under the tight schedule(Mike and Dana both were still working on SNL while making this). This movie is hilarious, everyone will find at least one joke they like. i think this is the most quotable movie of all time.

    A classic comedy

    Wayne's World is a 'masterpiece', as it were. Very original, and well worth seeing. After my ex- wife took my copy on VHS (no way!), I bought the DVD (bonus!) If you think Mike Meyers is funny, he doesn't get any funnier than this...

    The best of both!!

    This is definetly the best of both Saturday Night Livers, Myers and Carvey. This is an all time favorite of mine, and I encourage anyone who likes to laugh to buy it. You'll watch a thousand times and still laugh!
