It IS worthy, it IS worthy ...
2 July 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

"Wayne's World 2" is such a flawless continuation of screwy Wayne and screw-up Garth's adventures, that I really question the utility of this review, in fact, just read the first film's one and you'll get the idea, I loved the first and I can only tell you that as far as the sequel is concerned, it IS worthy, it IS worthy. Yeah, I know, that last comment of mine was incredibly creative. Thank you.

Now, let me just pull my thoughts together. I guess there's much more to say about "Wayne's World 2" if only for the fact that I accidentally saw it before the first one, without that parameter ruining any kind of excitement, on the contrary, I must say. In fact, I was so confident that if a sequel (well, it's more of a continuation like I said) were 'excellent', for a lack of better word, then the first one would be a no-disappointment guarantee. At the end, whether you watch the second or the first one at first, just make sure you watch both, these are truly comedic treasures, and certainly the best movie-and-its-sequel pairing of the 90's.

So, we meet Wayne again as the host of the public access TV Show of the same name, and nothing has changed, it's still Wayne, Garth, the name-less cavemen-looking operators, the same concept, and for our greatest delight the same catchphrase: "Wayne's World, Wayne's World! Party on! Excellent", followed by the obligatory concluding riff. There are a few changes though: the program is not set in the parent's basement anymore and this time, it's aired a little earlier because they have backstage pass for an Aerosmith concert. What would be the series without the Rock'n'roll Gods' blessings after all?

And before joining the iconic Mirthmobile, Wayne welcomes us back, providing some interesting insights about how things have changed in case we hadn't noticed. How could we? Apparently, he got 'hair in some weird places'; Garth had 'pubes' ("Allelujah! We want to shout), and he's still dating the sexy Cassandra who's trying to make her name big in the Rockosphere. Beyond the humor, what works so well in this little moment is the immediate connection we share with Wayne, the same feeling as when we meet an old friend after a long summer vacation.

Yet "Wayne's World 2" never takes the initial success for granted, and remains truly original. The 'Bohemian Rhapsody' head-banging was such a defining moment of "Wayne's World" that recycling it with another song would have seriously compromised the credibility of the film. Instead, when they get in the car, they simply listen to a program animated by a host named 'Handsome Dan'. We don't pay much attention to this detail, but it makes the pay-off even more hilarious. Like its predecessor, "Wayne's World" trusts both our patience and intelligence and we know every obscure moment ought to have a pay-off.

And that's precisely what Wayne figures when he meets weird workers stacking in crates chicken and watermelons, making sure they're plenty of them while others walk back and forth with a big plate-glass window every couple of minutes. And when Wayne disguises as a lamppost repairer, Garth as a traffic cop, and the two teammates as a biker and sailor, to spy on Cassandra and are fatally chased by Bobby, her agent, hell, we also know this is going somewhere. It's like a little game between the screenwriters and us, but no matter what we expect, it doesn't make the punch line less enjoyable.

Now, I don't know if at 300 lines left from the review, I'll have time to cover the whole plot, nor that all the information would be necessary because if you spent twenty years without watching the film, either you're a mental or a movie lover … not, or you were born in the 90's, or worse, after. But well, let's clarify it, Cassandra is as hot and sweet as ever, and Christopher Walken doesn't need much to be convincing as the slick, smart and flirtatious record producer, so condescending toward Cassandra's nerdy friends. Well, I shouldn't call nerds guys who reject other nerds, but then I should find another word to describe sweet and lovable losers with devouring passions and unfulfilled talents.

The plot: Wayne follows a weird naked Indian during a bizarre dream and meets Jim Morrison in the middle of the desert. Jim tells Wayne that he should make something of his life, like a concert in Aurora. A colorful and experienced roadie named Del Preston would help them. How to be sure Aerosmith, Rip Taylor, Van Halen and even a weird old man making a canoe out of a log would come? "If you book them, they will come" And then "Wayne's Works" worlds like a field of dream-like creativity where nothing is gratuitous for the sake of a gag. I mentioned that every gag had a pay-off, in fact, the best ones are still totally random, served by so many cameos it's impossible to enumerate them all.

Let me just pick three favorites, James Hong as Cassandra's father and his Zangly hilarious kung-fu style badly dub confrontation with Wayne and Kim Basinger as the so Schwing-inducing Honey Hornee who probably contributed to one of the funniest exchanges ever, in a record-time of less than twenty seconds: "Take me" "Where? I'm low on gas and you need a jacket" "Let me be frank" "Can I still be Garth?"

The film is as quotable, funny, and sweet as the first, and to respect the protocol, let me conclude with a few PS notes.

(PS1: to the post-90's natives, don't get offended, but chances are that you wouldn't get all the movie references, but just do yourself a favor and watch "The Graduate".)

(PS2: Drew Barrymore never looked so hotter!)

(PS3: I know I only picked two favorite cameos; there just wasn't enough space …)
