Based on the Saturday Night Live sketch of the same name, Wayne's World is a wacky, irreverent pop-culture comedy about the adventures of two amiably aimless metal-head friends, Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey). From Wayne's basement, the pair broadcast a talk-show called "Wayne's World" on local public access television. The show comes to the attention of a sleazy network executive (Rob Lowe) who wants to produce a big-budget version of "Wayne's World"—and he also wants Wayne's girlfriend, a rock singer named Cassandra (Tia Carrere). Wayne and Garth have to battle the executive not only to save their show, but also Cassandra. Director Penelope Spheeris, Myers and Carvey hang a lot of silly, but funny, jokes on this thin plot, and the energy of the cast—as well as the wild pop-culture references—make Wayne's World a cut above the average Saturday Night Live spin-off movie.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film tends to be funny when confining itself to short sketches or dopey television-based humor, flat when pretending to be anything more.
Fresh: The movie has a pleasing daftness.
Fresh: Hollywood surely accepts the movie's message: laughter is the least expensive therapy. And audiences may happily parrot another Wayneism to Myers: 'He shoots! He scores!'
Fresh: You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll drive home. As Wayne or Garth would say, it's schweeeet.
Waynes World is a must have! Its one of the best and funniest classics out there! MUST BUY WAYNES WORLD!
Excellent! Best movie eva!
