Wayne's World remains one of the best movies to emerge from SNL's celebrated stages...

With Myers feeling his oats as a comedy star, Wayne's World turned out to be an irresistibly silly (and masterfully marketed) option for audiences. [Blu-ray]

Combustible Celluloid

Though it appears to be a brain-dead comedy, it at least has a little something to say about American suburbia in the 1990s -- a specialty of director Penelope Spheeris.

It's snickering, silly and, at times, downright demented (Bugs Bunny in a dress?), but that's why it works.

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!'

Confronts the cultural emptiness of late 20th-century life head-on, revealing a profound hollowness in the heart of modern man (and babe).

Much of the credit for the film's success lies with Spheeris, whose confident if rough-edged direction keeps it on track and cooking.
