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

According to Penelope Spheeris, Mike Myers was difficult to work with. He reportedly once stormed off set when there wasn't any margarine for his bagel. She assigned her daughter to be his assistant. She told Entertainment Weekly: "He (Myers) was emotionally needy and got more difficult as the shoot went along. 'You should have heard him bitching when I was trying to do that 'Bohemian Rhapsody' scene: 'I can't move my neck like that! Why do we have to do this so many times? No one is going to laugh at that!' To this day, I have this image of my daughter sitting on this little cooler, looking at me, like, 'Mom, I f-ing hate you," See more »

Goofs

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 »

Uh, I bet we're just going to sit here and when they're finished they'll fade to black." [Fade to black] Garth: "I can't believe they did that." Wayne: "I told ya." See more »

Hilarious.
24 July 2002 | by (Devon,England) – See all my reviews

I saw Waynes world ten years ago and I still find it funny even now.It is about two airheads who run their own TV show and don't get anything for it..They are soon visited by a businessman who exploits them for the show.

Waynes world even after ten years I still find it funny.It spoofs so many things and it just makes me laugh.It also has a good storyline to play along with.I reccomend watching Waynes world and the sequel in one night to see what you think. You will enjoy it.I rate 4/5.
