Storyline

Wayne is still living at home. He has a world class collection of name tags from jobs he's tried, but he does have his own public access TV show. A local station decides to hire him and his sidekick, Garth, to do their show professionally and Wayne & Garth find that it is no longer the same. Wayne falls for a bass guitarist and uses his and Garth's Video contacts to help her career along, knowing that Ben Oliver, the sleazy advertising guy who is ruining their show will probably take her away from him if they fail.

Trivia

When Garth shows us around Benjamin's apartment it's very like the British television series Through the Keyhole (1987). This might not be a coincidence since the format started as a sub-strand on TV-am's Good Morning Britain (1983), the same breakfast television company that also broadcast the Wide Awake Club (1984) children's show on which Mike Myers regularly appeared with Neil Mullarkey as "The Sound Asleep Club". Mullarkey later appeared in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997). See more »

Alternate Versions

In the broadcast version, many of the "inappropriate" parts are changed or cut. Some of the more interesting line changes are (see Quotes section for original lines): Wayne: Who's playing today? Tiny: Jolly Green Giants, Stinky Beetles. Wayne: Stinky Beetles? Are they any good? Tiny: They stink! Wayne: I lost my show, I lost my best friend I lost my girl! I'm being dumped on, that's all, dumped on... Garth: Benjamin is no one's friend. If he were an ice cream flavor, he'd be Jamocha Almond Idiot. See more »

A true classic
12 November 2002 | by checkoutthisbadboySee all my reviews

Penelope Spheeris "Wayne's World" is a true classic. I first saw this film around its release in 1992, and for me it's never aged, it a film I've grown up with, from the days where I didn't quite understand the grown up jokes but laughed anyway, to the last time I watched it a few weeks ago (and yes, I got the jokes this time...). The jokes are still as witty, the sheer stupidity but yet genius of the characters are fantastic. Garth will go down as greatest geek to grace the earth, with his amazing cow prodelling skills, but yet still possesses the power to make me laugh till I wanna "spew". This film seems to be a starting point for Mike Myers, a playground for him to develop the comedy style that will eventually lead to Austin Powers, and being a fan of all Myers work I have loved watching the progression to his latest release taking place. Being from England, although I am aware of Saturday Night Live and what it entails, I am unaware of how Wayne's World came across on the small screen, however from previous experience of television to film leaps I don't think this one has faired badly at all. As im sure you have probably gathered by now, I am a fan of this film, however I am aware that it doesn't appeal to all tastes, it is outlandish and absolutely ridiculous at times, but for me it all adds to the charm. I don't think this film ever set out to be taken seriously, or indeed to be hailed a master piece by critics, but for the simple purpose of creating a film that made people laugh, and I feel through its sheer naivety it has become one of the most hilarious and age-less classic for me.
