Storyline

Wayne is still living at home. He has a world class collection of name tags from jobs he's tried, but he does have his own public access TV show. A local station decides to hire him and his sidekick, Garth, to do their show professionally and Wayne & Garth find that it is no longer the same. Wayne falls for a bass guitarist and uses his and Garth's Video contacts to help her career along, knowing that Ben Oliver, the sleazy advertising guy who is ruining their show will probably take her away from him if they fail.

Alternate Versions

In the broadcast version, many of the "inappropriate" parts are changed or cut. Some of the more interesting line changes are (see Quotes section for original lines): Wayne: Who's playing today? Tiny: Jolly Green Giants, Stinky Beetles. Wayne: Stinky Beetles? Are they any good? Tiny: They stink! Wayne: I lost my show, I lost my best friend I lost my girl! I'm being dumped on, that's all, dumped on... Garth: Benjamin is no one's friend. If he were an ice cream flavor, he'd be Jamocha Almond Idiot. See more »

I laughed my head off! Funniest film of the early 90's
30 April 2000 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

Wayne's World is a silly yet utterly hilarious look at two dimwits (based on they're SNL skit Mike Myers and Dana Carvey) who have their own public access TV show called "Waynes World". The story thickens to a nice touch with Rob Lowe as a big time hot-shot who wants to bring their show to big heights. Tia Carrere has never been hotter as the woman who Wayne wants and "we'll be mine". Many sight gags, many good lines, and probably all quotable, this movie (like Myers' Austin Powers) belongs in a place in comedy film history. A++
