Wayne’s World is a comedy film from the year 1991, starring Mike Myers as the main character as Wayne and Dana Carvey as Garth, and starring Rob Lowe as Benjamin. Wayne and Garth run a cable access show in Wayne’s basement appropriately titled Wayne’s World. Rob Lowe’s character Benjamin is a big shot TV producer and wants to buy the rights to Wayne’s World so he can exploit it to its full potential. Hilarity ensues.
Personally, I find Wayne’s World to be very entertaining. I think a lot of the humor is very high school level, which I appreciate. Mike Myers and Dana Carvey have a rich history together on SNL, so they work well together. Rob Lowe also makes a great sleazeball, as probably influenced by his real life. Some jokes are a little too corny but that’s fine.
I would definitely give Wayne’s World a watch if you have not seen it already. It’s excellent. Although not appropriate for all ages, it is a timeless classic. 9/10.
