Wayne is back, this time trying to organize a rock festival with help from friend Garth and the spirit of Jim Morrison (Doors). Meanwhile, his girlfriend's manager is busy trying to woo her away from Wayne and move her to LA. Life gets interesting when Wayne must rush from the concert to try and stop the wedding. Aerosmith are featured at the concert. Written by

When director Penelope Spheeris was asked why she declined to direct this sequel after directing the original, she said couldn't "deal" with Mike Myers again. Apparently Myers and Spheeris had a few "creative differences". See more »
When Wayne pulls in at the gas station, across the way can be seen a building with the lettering "Bonita High School, Home of the Bearcats". Bonita High School is in LaVerne in California, a long way from Illinois where the film is set. See more »
I bet you like to be in control...
Yes, like when I was 17, my sister wanted to loan my Def Leppard. I said "No way!".

Not As Good As The Original, But Good None The Less
The crew of "Wayne's World 2" had a nearly impossible task of following up the amazingly successful "Wayne's World". Needless to say, this does not compare to the original.
However, this film is pretty good. Myers and Carvey are back with just as much wit and splendid timing as the original. This time they are opposed by the brilliance of Christopher Walken who, as usual, plays his part to a tee.
The plot of setting up a festival does not have the power of that of the original and I was not crazy with the Jim Morrison character.
The amount of cameos was a bit too extreme at time as what seemed like every other shot had some other famous person wanting to be part of the film.
You would think that a film like this would not be as good hearted as it is, but it really is just a good film on so many levels.
It's not a must see like it's predecessor, but I would still recommend it to anyone.
