Much funnier than the first film.
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
There are some worthwhile moments in Wayne's World 2, but not enough to justify a feature-length movie.
