Wayne's World -- When a sleazy TV exec (Rob Lowe) offers Wayne and Garth a fat contract to tape their late-night cable-access show at his network, the two can't believe their good fortune ("No way." "WAY!"). But they soon discover the road from basement to big time is a gnarly one, fraught with danger, temptation, and ragin' party opportunities.
