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.

When Wayne is laying in bed with Cassandra, he asks her if she'll still love him during his "Hanging with Ravi Shankar" phase. And his "Bloated, purple, dead on a toilet" phase. The "Ravi Shankar" phase refers to George Harrison, who met the famed Indian sitar player in the mid-1960's and became good friends with the artist, eventually bringing an Indian influence into the Beatles albums "Rubber Soul", "Revolver", and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". The "dead on a toilet phase" refers to Elvis Presley, who died of a heart attack from too many pills while sitting on the toilet. 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.

I laughed my head off! Funniest film of the early 90's
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++
