Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
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.

Mike Myers originally didn't want to share the limelight with Dana Carvey. Myers had originally developed the Wayne character as a solo character while performing with Second City. The character of Garth was added for Saturday Night Live (1975). At the time, Carvey was arguably the bigger star. See more »
In the donut shop, in the scene where Wayne and Garth make up, look closely at the straws Garth has stabbed into his donut figurines - one of them changes from red to blue between shots (the director acknowledges this in the DVD commentary.) 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'S WORLD is actually one of the best SNL-inspired comedies ever made. Mike Myers and Dana Carvey are way cool as Wayne and Garth. It's just shameful that the movie contains mostly wasted music...HYUH, RIGHT, if monkeys fly out of my butt. I think it the music here is excellent. Tia Carerre is hot as Wayne's love interest, and Rob Lowe does a fine job as the con artist who buys Wayne and Garth's show. Believe me, it's worthy.
