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.

When Garth's dog comes into his bedroom to tell him Wayne is waiting outside, she walks towards the bed and stops with her foot on an item of black clothing. In the next shot, you are looking at her from the front and there is clear floor in front of her. See more »

It's really good seeing you, Benjamin. You haven't been into Shakey's for so long.
Well, I've been real busy.

Wayne: "Right, excellent movie. All right!" Garth: "Good one!" [Fade in to Wayne and Garth on their basement couch] Wayne: "All right. Well that's all the time we have for our movie. We hope you found it entertaining, whimsical and yet relevant, with an underlined revisionist conceit that belie the film's emotional attachments to the subject matter." Garth: "I just hope you didn't think it sucked!" Wayne: "Okay, so thank you for coming. Good night and party on!" Garth: "Party on, Wayne!" Wayne: "Party on, Garth!" [Fade to black] See more »
Back in the early 90's, Saturday Night Live was brought back to life with a great cast. Among them were Mike Myers and Dana Carvey who created some of the most memorable characters Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar. A bunch of Saturday Night Live movies were released, some were gigantic hits like Blues Brothers and some were misses Coneheads(which I loved by the way). Wayne's World was nothing on Saturday Night Live but two stoners who just ragged on things, how could you make it into a full feature length film? Not only did Penelope Spheeris do it, she knocked it out of the ball park with Wayne's World. It's one of the funniest movies that you could ever see with one of the most memorable scenes in comedy history making "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen shoot back up to number one on the charts.
Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar are the hosts of Wayne's World in Aurora, Illinois, where they ogle pictures of beautiful celebrity women, play air guitar and drums, and interview local people, indirectly making fun of them over. One day Benjamin, a television station executive, when he finds out how many people watch the show, he instructs his producer Russell Finley to find out where the show is taped, telling him they may have an opportunity for a huge sponsorship. Benjamin shows up next week in Wayne's basement and introduces himself after the show ends. He offers to buy the rights to the show and to keep Wayne and Garth on for what he describes as a "huge" salary. Little do they know that they are about to be sold out.
The cast had this absolutely amazing chemistry that made this film work in all the right places adding new characters with Tia Carrere, Rob Lowe, and Kurt Fuller. I love this scene where Wayne and his girlfriend Cassandra go into a music store and he starts the riff on the guitar playing Led Zepplin's song "Stairway to Heaven" and the sales associate points to the sign that says "No Stairway to Heaven", thank you for that message! I love Wayne's reaction to it as well "No Stairway? Denied!", too funny. Also they meet Alice Cooper, who I met as a little girl, and he is one of the most intelligent people you could meet in real life and I loved how they captured it in this movie showing that Alice is a character, in real life he's incredibly intelligent, gentle and cool. He tells Wayne and Garth to hang with them and they just get down on their knees screaming "We're not worthy!" and he leans his hand out so they could kiss it! I nearly died laughing at the scene where the T2 pulls Wayne over showing him the picture of John Conner "Have you seen this boy?". I loved the multiple endings. There isn't a thing I would change with this movie, it's a great comedy that is just guaranteed to make you laugh till your sides hurt. I highly recommend it, it's party time.
