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
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.

In 1992 we were given the comedy classic, Wayne's World, it was stupid,
immature, and silly, but it's what we needed for a great laugh. Mike
Myers comes up with a lot of creative characters and he hit the nail in
the head with Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar. After the huge success of
Wayne's World, it was pretty obvious that they could go for another
round. Unfortunately Wayne's World 2 wasn't as big of a splash as the
original, but it still made me laugh so hard. As stupid as it was and
some of the jokes were a little recycled, I still had such a great time
watching this movie. It's silly and over the top, but how could you not
have fun with Wayne and Garth? This is a fun sequel that should be
given a fair chance.
Wayne and Garth are a year older and everything has stayed basically the same, except Wayne has moved out of his parents' house and lives with Garth in an abandoned factory loft in Chicago. Wayne has a dream where he meets Jim Morrison and a weird naked Indian, in which Morrison tells Wayne that his destiny is to organize and put on a big concert. Cassandra, meanwhile, spends a lot of time out of town where she is working with record producer Mr. Big on recording music. Her new producer, Bobby Cahn, slowly tries to seduce her away from Wayne. After Wayne admits that he was spying on her, Cassandra breaks off the relationship and hastily gets engaged to Bobby on the rebound. Garth meets a beautiful woman, Honey Hornee, at the laundromat, and she quickly ropes him in with her charms. Wayne and Garth re-enter Wayne's previous dream and meet Jim Morrison again. They decide to go for one more try and make "Waynestock" a success, get Cassandra back, and see if Garth can find real love since his new girl is kinda homicidal.
Honestly if someone asked me if Wayne's World 2 is worth the watch, I'd definitely say yes. This is always guaranteed a good laugh, just Garth's story alone with Kim Bassinger as Honey Hornee is worth the look. I also love the scene where the guys end up in a gay bar and end up singing "Y.M.C.A." song, I nearly died laughing. Also Christopher Walken is in this movie, what more do you need to watch a movie? Christopher was such a great addition to the characters and made a great villain. It was great to see all the characters back together and this was a fun sequel, so if you need a good laugh, don't hold back, this is a movie that is sure to tickle you're funny bone.
In general, sequels tend not to be such a good idea. There are many
examples where a sequel has been utter rubbish and it is rare that a
sequel can match up to its original, even if it is a good film.
However, every so often a sequel comes along that can match its
counterpart and even have some better points. Wayne's World 2 is a
prime example of this.
Mike Myers and Dana Carvey are back as Wayne and Garth and this time the embark on a quest to stage a concert in Aurora after Wayne is visited in dream by an all time great of the music world. Another strong plot and some great new characters to go with the originals make this film very watchable and there are possible even more laugh out loud funny moments than before.
A very good, funny film that does justice to the great original
I thought Wayne's World 2 was much funnier than the first one. The jokes are much better as is the storyline which is unusual for a sequel. I think this is one of Mike Myers best ever films and probably the funniest he's ever been in. The great thing is, you don't even have to watch the first film to understand what goes on in the second film either. A fantastic film full of great jokes and if you don't laugh, you can't be human.
This is a good sequel to the original film. The part that stands out in this that i loved is when Wayne and Cassandra's father fight. I have always loved martial arts movie spoofs and this is funny. From the impossible kicks to the poorly dubbed voice of Cassandra's father. All the other characters from the original reunite for this good sequel. It will have u in stiches.
I think this movie is pretty underrated. I think it was just as funny as the
first one the movie was very funny. Every scene from the Village People
spoof to the scenes with Jim Morrisson and the naked indian to anything
involving Garth and Honey Hornee(bodacious Kim Basinger) and the scene were
Wayne fights with Cassandra's father(the movie's highlight) were just
hilarious. I found this to be a most excellent sequel and I'm just hoping
that Mike Myers someday makes a third one he probably won't do that now
since he is milking Austin Powers to death. Anyhow this is one of the better
SNL based movies out there along with the first "Wayne's World","Coneheads"
and "The Blues Brothers" and I reccomend it to anyone looking for a good
but like the original this movie doesn't have much laughs,but once again the characters make the movie fun. i iike this one about the same as the original,but for some reason i watch this movie a lot more than the original. i guess maybe more memorable scenes than the first one,im not sure. both wayne's world movies could be even better if they had more laughs,but like i said the characters make it fun,and watchable. both plots for the two wayne's world movies are not as dumb as the plots in the two austin powers movies. but both austin powers movies had a lot more laughs. but the wayne's world movies are still fun. i give wayne's world 2 **1/2 out of ****
I recently bought this film, I'm a long time fan of Waynes World 1 and
2. Bit disappointed that the DVD didn't have any extras but i can
settle for just owning this film. My favourite parts of the film are
the parts with Jim Morrison (mainly because I'm a huge fan of The
Wayne: "Who are you?" Jim: "Im Jim Morrison" Wayne: "Who's he?" Jim: "..A weird naked Indian" Wayne: "Cool"
Also i like the bit when Dell Preston is showing the groupies the machine gun turrets on the stage model. Funny and exciting this is one of the very few sequels i like. recommended to any fan of Mike Myers work.
Wayne's World as a brief SNL skit was always quite hilarious, and the
first movie was one of the better ones made from an SNL skit. However
by the time this movie had made it to cable TV, the entire concept just
seemed way over done. Having a profitable movie can cause these types
of situations. Of course a sequel will be made, and then the goal is
keeping the material fresh, and finding new things for your characters
to do. Wayne's World 2 is really just a rehashing of the same ideas
from the original mixed with numerous cameos, other movie references,
and ideas that just don't always pay off with the laughter that Myers
may have intended.
The story picks up with Wayne and Garth still doing their public access TV show, just like in the original. Wayne is still jealous of his girlfriend Cassandra's career and male attention, just like in the original. In order to prove his own worth, Wayne decides to throw a huge outdoor music festival to apparently make things right with the world again. Things culminate with the appearance of Aerosmith making their second cameo of the movie. There are some truly funny moments that mostly involve Chris Farley as a roadie wanna be, and Garth trying to woo Kim Basinger. Christopher Walken's appearance is welcome of course as a romantic rival for Cassandra's affection. Also a funny cameo from James Hong as her father.
Alas, the magic just isn't there this time, and it was certainly time for Mike Myers to move on from this character. Penelope Spheeris was not on board this time as she, like so many others, found Mike Myers impossible to work with. Now after the failure of The Love Guru, it is unclear if Myers has anything new left in him. If Wayne's World 2 comes on, you might want to keep hitting buttons on your remote control every few minutes to see if something better is out there. 5 of 10 stars.
