This film is sometimes too familiar, especially in early scenes that deliberately repeat the first film's gags. But the formula isn't tired yet.

The secret to the comedy of the Wayne's World movies is their goodwill... and in Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar the series has created two characters it is impossible to dislike.

The sequel to last year's breakaway hit offers more of the same, but it's somehow fresher, funnier and more endearing than the airheaded original.

Carvey is such a lovable doofus and Myers such a well-intentioned naif that it's hard to get down on them, especially considering that the heirs to their niche in pop iconography are Beavis and Butt-head.

became more about an excuse to party. Sure, that fits Wayne Campbell's style, but I was hoping for some more story, even if it was a bit silly

Wayne's World 2 revels in silliness even more than the first movie, but it turns out that's a good thing as compensation for the otherwise repetitive feel. [Blu-ray]

No one was more surprised than I was that not only did this "Saturday Night Live" sketch work as a film, it worked twice, and uproariously both times.

This isn't nearly as funny as its predecessor, but still boasts more decent gags per reel than your average comedy follow-up.

Little more than a string of comic bits.

Not the sensation WWI was, but still fun for Carvey, Myers fans.

Dismal sequel to a thoroughly inessential movie.

Nothing wrong with this sequel. Great jokes (YMCA sequence!) and tons of fun.

I actually liked this better than the original. Hysterically funny film.

It lives on borrowed time, but makes the most of it.

[The] same concepts that looked refreshing and entertaining two years earlier, seem boring and repetitive now.

Wayne's World 2 is mostly just mining the same pop culture terrain as its far more worthy predecessor.

Audience Reviews for Wayne's World 2

One of the best comedy sequels ever made, it follows the first movie exactly, doesn't change any actors, and it is just as funny without reusing all the same jokes. And it's based on the popular SNL sketch. I highly recommend this movie, it's the funniest sequel of the 90s.

It doesn't equal or surpass the first, but this is still a good sequel, and a decent film in general. Surjik isn't quite as good a director as Spheeris, and some scenes go on a bit too long, but overall, this is an okay movie.

Wayne's World 2 is the perfect example of a better sequel. The film is even more enjoyable, and features some awesome cameos. In this one, Wayne decides to put on a concert after he has a dream about Jim Morrison. Funny, comical, and silly, Wayne's World 2 is a terrific sequel. Mike Myers displays a great prose for comedy, and he delivers something great on screen, same goes to Dana Carvey. Both actors delivers laugh out loud performances, and Wayne's World is actually, for a comedy sequel; even better than the first. Well, I've watched this film over 20 times, more times than the first, and I always come back to this sequel because I find that all involved had more confidence and were able to pull something even better the second time around.

    1. Del Preston: Now. It take two people to run a stage. One out front, and one backstage. Now Garth will be out her in the front with his team, and Wayne will be backstage with his team. To the left and right will be the machine gun nests. Now these babies tend to heat up, so shoot in three second bursts. In the event of capture, I will personally be issuing cyanide pills to be placed under the tongue, as so. [places a cyanide capsule under his tongue] Any questions?
    2. Garth Algar: Uh, yeah, I have a question. When did you turn into a nut bar?
