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

The story that the roadie keeps telling, about having to fill a brandy glass with brown M&Ms for Ozzy Osbourne, is based on a true story that has become a bit of an urban legend. Van Halen actually had a rider (a contractual list of items that a band demands from the concert venue - towels, catering, stage equipment requirements, etc.) that said there must be a bowl of M&Ms backstage, but with all the brown ones removed. The reason for the absurd rule was to make sure that the entire rider (which included safety measurements for the band's exceptionally large and heavy stage set) had been read and obeyed in full. Sure enough at Pueblo, Colorado show, the rider wasn't read and the staging crashed through the floor. This lead to the urban myth that the band flipped out and intentionally caused the $80,000 worth of damage themselves all because they found brown M&Ms. 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 »

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
