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.

Did You Know?


When Garth shows us around Benjamin's apartment it's very like the British TV series Through the Keyhole (1987). This might not be a coincidence since the format started as a sub-strand on TV-am's Good Morning Britain (1983), the same breakfast TV company that also broadcast the Wide Awake Club (1984) children's show on which Mike Myers regularly appeared with Neil Mullarkey as "The Sound Asleep Club". Mullarkey later appeared in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997). See more »


Garth claims that the security guard said that Frank Sharp will be coming through Chicago on Fridays. The security guard never actually mentions any day of the week. See more »

Benjamin: Well, I've been real busy.

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 »

I laughed my head off! Funniest film of the early 90's
30 April 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wayne's World is a silly yet utterly hilarious look at two dimwits (based on they're SNL skit Mike Myers and Dana Carvey) who have their own public access TV show called "Waynes World". The story thickens to a nice touch with Rob Lowe as a big time hot-shot who wants to bring their show to big heights. Tia Carrere has never been hotter as the woman who Wayne wants and "we'll be mine". Many sight gags, many good lines, and probably all quotable, this movie (like Myers' Austin Powers) belongs in a place in comedy film history. A++
