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.

Throwback Thursday Part II-Wayne’s World

Wayne’s World, Wayne’s World, Party Time, Excellent……

In 1988, via Saturday Night Live, we were introduced to Wayne Campbell  (Mike Myers) and Garth Algar (Dana Carvey), two guys who produced a  local late night cable access show from Wayne’s basement.

Four years later, Wayne’s World, the movie premiered. Reprising and stretching their characters, Wayne and Garth are still producing their show in Wayne’s basement via the local access cable network.  Wayne has been dating Cassandra (Tia Carrere) the front woman of an emerging rock band.  When Cassandra’s band is offered a record contract, by Benjamin Oliver (Rob Lowe), Wayne begins to suspect that he has ulterior motives.

This movie is incredibly funny and quotable. There is a reason why Wayne’s World is one of the best SNL skits in the show’s 30+ years on the air. I recommend this movie
