Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
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.Written by

In the 1992 book "Wayne's World: Extreme Close-Up," which recapped sketches and previewed the movie, Wayne's profile lists his occupation as "International Man of Mystery," and for "Sex," it says, "Yes, please," suggesting that Mike Myers had Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997) in mind back then.

When Wayne gets pulled over by the cop, the cop is seen (in the mirror) removing his glasses and helmet. When he shows Wayne the picture, the glasses disappear from his left hand. But in the far-away shot when Wayne is zooming away, the glasses are back in his left hand and the picture disappeared. See more »

It's really good seeing you, Benjamin. You haven't been into Shakey's for so long.
Well, I've been real busy.

Wayne: "Right, excellent movie. All right!" Garth: "Good one!" [Fade in to Wayne and Garth on their basement couch] Wayne: "All right. Well that's all the time we have for our movie. We hope you found it entertaining, whimsical and yet relevant, with an underlined revisionist conceit that belie the film's emotional attachments to the subject matter." Garth: "I just hope you didn't think it sucked!" Wayne: "Okay, so thank you for coming. Good night and party on!" Garth: "Party on, Wayne!" Wayne: "Party on, Garth!" [Fade to black] See more »
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
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++
