Movie Info

Everyone's favorite headbangers from Aurora, Illinois, are back in this sequel to the 1992 hit comedy Wayne's World. The success of their TV show allows Wayne Campbell (Mike Myers) and Garth Algar (Dana Carvey) to finally move out of their parents' homes, but now they have to figure out what to do with their lives. Wayne's girlfriend, up-and-coming rock star Cassandra (Tia Carrere), is enjoying a career boost thanks to her new manager Bobby Cohn (Christopher Walken), but Garth thinks that Bobby is more interested in her body than her place on the charts. Meanwhile, Wayne is visited in a dream by the late Jim Morrison (Michael A. Nickles), who convinces him to promote a massive rock festival, "Waynestock," featuring Aerosmith as headliners. Garth, on the other hand, is finally relieved of his pesky virginity by femme fatale Honey Hornee (Kim Basinger), though it turns out that Honey has a hidden agenda. Drew Barrymore, Harry Shearer, and Charlton Heston play cameo roles in Wayne's World 2, and Jay Leno, Rip Taylor, and Todd Rundgren appear as themselves.more

Top Critic

Much funnier than the first film.

Time Out
Top Critic

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.

New York Times
Top Critic

There are some worthwhile moments in Wayne's World 2, but not enough to justify a feature-length movie.

Top Critic

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.

Washington Post
Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for Wayne's World 2

It didn't live up to the first, this was just stupid and not funny, and it wasn't the cool stupid like the first.

Jim Careter

Super Reviewer

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.

Aj V

Super Reviewer

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.
