Wayne's World Movie Review and Trailer
You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll hurl.
Originally a series of Saturday Night Live skits featured on the long running American TV show, Wayne's World is one of my favourite films and should be one of yours too.
Perhaps best known for the Bohemian Rhapsody scene featured in Garth's Pacer, the Murph Mobile, Wayne's World was a 1992 hit movie written by Mike Myers of later Austin Powers fame and Bonnie and Terry Turner who also were writers for SNL and later 3rd Rock From The Sun.
Wayne Campbell broadcasts his cable access TV show from the basement of his parents house in his home town of Aurora, Illinois and wants nothing more than to be able to do Wayne's World for a living alongside co-host and best buddy Garth.
The movie features a smoking-hot young Tia Carrere as Cassandra who plays the love interest Wayne meets at The Gasworks. Rob Lowe plays Benjamin Kane who could be the man to take Wayne's World to the world of network TV, but at what cost? It seems to Wayne he's more interested in Cassandra than the artistic vision of the show.
There's an excellent cameo by Ed O'Neil who played Al Bundy in Married With Children. As Glen, the guy who works at Stan Makita's Donuts, Ed offers superb delivery of a few exceptional lines. Singer Meat Loaf also features in a decent cameo as Tiny, a bouncer at the Gasworks.
Wayne's World has a plethora of one liners and makes this a cult favoutite of early nineties comedy.
"If it's a severed head I'm going to be very upset"
Featuring an incredible 90s rock soundtrack including Black Sabbath and Rhino Bucket.
The 25 minute documentary featured with the box set shows an insight into Wayne's World and has interviews with Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Tia Carrera, Rob Lowe, Lorne Michaels and Penelope Spheeris.
Movie Trivia: In the drumming scene where Wayne gets denied playing a stair way to heaven riff using the Fender Stratocaster, Dana Carvey was actually playing the drums. Wayne's World was filmed in just 34 days.
