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

Tia Carrere (who plays Cassandra) and Charlton Heston (who plays the good actor playing the mechanic at the gas station) also appeared in the movie "True Lies" (1994) which was released 7 months after this film. In both films, they share no screen time together. 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 »
Jim, why was I supposed to put on this concert?
Because you had to learn that it doesn't matter what you do, Cassandra loves you for who you are and that, being an adult means facing resposibility yet still taking the time to have fun.
Right, its like coming home on Friday night and doing your homework right away so that your Saturday night is free to just party.
No I like the way I said it better.

When you see all the crowd jumping up an down, look very closely and you can see Wayne and Cassandra hopping with the audience. See more »
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.
