Wayne's World Reviews
If you haven't watched this, watch it now.
Wayne's World is a tale of two men trying to make it big, and in some terms, I guess that it worked out. Wayne and Garth have a small T.V. show in Wayne's basement called "Wayne's World". It's just like the local news, but with a hilarious attitude. The duo get what they wanted but there was a couple speedbumps in the process.
One of the funniest parts of Wayne's World is when Wayne and Garth start to argue while laying under that plane flies over them. The reason that I find this scene funny is because I can relate to it. Sometimes you get into a really bad fight with your friends. What also made this funny is because they timed it perfectly because they started swearing.
It also is a great movie because it brings joy to the whole family. There are multiple scenes that a family with any age children can enjoy together. Films like this can bring people closer to each other like teens who sit on their phones all day. If it's good enough to get a 14 year old girl off her phone for the whole film, it deserves gratitude and some awards.
Overall Wayne's World is an amazing movie. How else would it bring in an income of $183,097,323? I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes semi cheesy movies. Honestly this is my all time favorite movie, and I hope it can be yours too!
Wayne (played by Mike Myers) and his friend Garth (Dana Carvey) have their own program on public access television, broadcast from the basement of Wayne's parents' house. It is pretty low-key and has a limited audience. However, they are spotted by an unscrupulous, superficial and manipulative TV producer, Benjamin (Rob Lowe), who aims to turn them more mainstream and exploit the advertising and sponsorship potential of the show...
Based on the characters Mike Myers and Dana Carvey played on Saturday Night Live, Wayne's World is very funny and original. Some great dialogue and one-liners and contemporary (for the early/mid-90s) humour. Some fairly clever send-ups of popular culture too. Captures well the zeitgeist of the early/mid-90s, including the music - the soundtrack is excellent.
Only downside is that it hasn't aged too well, and the in-humour of the mid-90s doesn't transfer very well to 20+ years later. It did feel a bit less fresh in 2016 as opposed to 1992. Still a great movie though.
