Wayne’s World is 25

Wayne’s World turns 25 on February 14th.

Wow, I feel old.

Based off the Saturday Night Live skit of the same name, star and co-writer Mike Myers was able to turn a three-minute sketch into one of the funniest movies from the early 1990’s.

I think one of the qualities that makes this movie so appealing is that Wayne and Garth are so ordinary. They’re just two guys filming a TV show in a suburban basement. That’s it. It’s so simple, but it works. While some of the references are a bit dated, these characters are not. Anyone could do the same thing today with a video camera and a youtube account. If I could put a finger on what makes this movie funny, I would. I can’t explain it, but it is hilarious, absolutely brilliant and the screenplay has some of the funniest lines I’ve ever heard.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I think that the scene where they are singing Bohemian Rhapsody is in the car just so perfect.

If you have not seen this movie, I recommend that you see it immediately. I promise that you will laugh. It’s just that good.

Happy Friday and to all my readers, have a good weekend.
