This review is from: Wayne's World [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Long before the world ever heard of Austin Powers, Mike Myers was infusing pop culture with the catch phrases and wild doings of Wayne Campbell and hastening the move of multiple Saturday Night Live characters to the big screen over the course of succeeding years. Wayne and his trusty sidekick Garth raked up at the box office and left us with a classic comedy that will be making people laugh for years to come. Aside from all the Wayne-isms and Garth-isms, this movie changed forever the way we listen to a number of classic rock songs.
Okay - let's review. Wayne lives in his parents' basement, but it's okay because he and his buddy Garth have their very own public access show on their local cable station in Aurora, Illinois. Wayne thinks his dream of doing Wayne's World for a living (and thus escaping from the world of name tags and hair nets) has come true when he gets an offer to do the show on a Chicago TV station, but there's a certain matter with the fine print. Will Wayne sell out? Yeah. And monkeys might fly out of my butt.
Myers and Carvey take their SNL trademark routines as far as they can, going a little too far once or twice (as with the Scooby Doo and Mega-happy endings - although they did make possible the much-appreciated Tia Carrere bikini scene), and it's not hard to see why: Wayne's World was the most popular SNL skit for a good two to three years running. The film has a surprising number of familiar faces: besides the aforementioned Tia Carrere, you get Rob Lowe (fresh off a certain little infamous home movie), Brian Doyle-Murray, Ed O'Neill, Lara Flynn Boyle, Donna Dixon, and - making cameo appearances - Chris Farley, Meatloaf, and Alice Cooper. Of course, Mike Myers and Dana Carvey take center stage at all times. They satirize everything, from Grey Poupon commercials to the entertainment industry, to themselves.
There are a number of memorable scenes: the Bohemian Rhapsody bit as the guys cruise town in the Mirth-mobile, Garth's Foxy Lady dance number (many of us will never be able to listen to that classic Jimi Hendrix tune the same way again), all of the Dreamweaver moments, the Laverne & Shirley take-off trip to Milwaukee, Wayne's Marilyn Monroe impersonation, and others. Whether you knew it or not, you were exposed to Wayne's World lingo throughout the 90s, so if you haven't seen the movie, isn't it time you learn why you should have laughed at all those jokes you didn't understand way back then?

5.0 out of 5 stars Immense, possibly the best film i've ever seen, 11 Dec 2001
By 
The comedy genious, Mike Myers is superb once again in this classic comedy.Wayne and Garth have a cable access show and are underground heroes in there hometown. Things are going well until the pair decide to "sell-out" and things start to go wrong. Full of stereotypes, cheesy jokes and one-liners. The more you watch this film, the more you love it. Hidden jokes and special guest cameo's make this film offer something everytme you watch it. Truly a masterpiece.

Wanyes world has always been a favourite of mine and my family and I watch it way too much for it to be normal. I would not recommend this film to people who don't understand 90's references because it is jam packed full of them. Overall this is a fun film that will have you in fits of laughter...

This review is from: Wayne's World [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Bought this for myself to watch on my birthday. Very basic packaging with no accompanying booklet, but a nice retro cover (the original film poster I think) Great quality DVD with some fun extras such as the usually commentaries and some interesting cast and crew interviews including Rob Lowe, Mike Myers and Penelope Spheeris. This isn't the product in the picture as it doesn't have the big ugly price sticker on the case, which I was pleased about.
