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.

During the "Terminator 2" parody scene that has Robert Patrick reprising his role as the evil T-1000 Terminator, the song "Time Machine" can be heard in the background. This song comes from the 1992 Black Sabbath album called "Dehumanizer" which featured a painted image of a Terminator Endoskeleton disguised in a grim reaper costume. See more »

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 »
As an older guy watching something geared more for a younger crowd, I would sit and watch this almost shaking my head in disbelief that I WAS watching this....and usually having a good time. It's brainless, but fun, like Mike Myers' stupid grin.
The humor is really stupid, silly, crude at times, innocent at times but funny many times. All that adds up to is an an hour-and-a-half of entertainment, so at least it succeeds in what it's trying to accomplish. So, even if it is far from a classy comedy, so what? How many are these days?
I can't knock something - even if this dumb - that makes me laugh. Apparently a lot of people agreed as it produced a sequel.
