The song that Aerosmith performs at Waynestock is "Shut Up and Dance", taken from the band's 11th studio album "Get a Grip", which was released approximately eight months before "Wayne's World 2" arrived in theaters. See more »
When Wayne is driving away in the sports car after the glass/chicken/melon crash, he drives past a sign that says "Santa Barbara". Santa Barbara is in southern California, many hundreds of miles from Aurora, Illinois, and would not be signposted that far away, showing that the film is being shot in California rather than Illinois.
The scene is a shot-for-shot homage of the ending scene from 'The Graduate' in which Dustin Hoffman takes the Santa Barbara freeway exit in a similar vehicle just before stopping at the same service station. See more »
How can you sleep like that?
Listen, sonny Jim. Sleeping like this will add ten years to your life. I learned it from Keith Richards when I toured with the Stones. This may be the reason why Keith cannot be killed by conventional weapons.

Wayne and Garth have to clean up after the Waynestock event. They are supervised by the Indian who led them to Jim Morrison. The Indian has a tear running down his cheek after looking at the mess left behind. Wayne (to Indian): "Don't worry, we'll clean it up." See more »
One of the few sequels that is better than the original!
One of the biggest hits of 1992, the original WAYNE'S WORLD is a definite classic and is one of the funniest movies of 1990's, but I am not a big fan of sequels so I tried to avoid watching WAYNE'S WORLD 2 for a while. Eventually, I finally got around to watching WAYNE'S WORLD 2 and found it to be surprisingly better than the original. Part of the reason the movie succeeds is because it has one of the greatest casts in movie history with appearances by Christopher Walken, Heather Locklear, Bob Odenkirk, Robert Smigel, Kevin Pollak, Kim Basinger, Chris Farley, Drew Barrymore, Ted McGinley, Tim Meadows, Jay Leno, Charlton Heston, Ed O'Neill, and Aerosmith. I'm not saying that a good cast automatically makes a movie great, but in this case, it certainly helps.
The gags in WAYNE'S WORLD 2 are definitely more random and bizarre than the ones in the original, making it even more fun than I expected it to be. Some of these random jokes don't work as well as they should, though overall it's still a hilarious movie that is good to watch with your friends. ***1/2
