Based on the Saturday Night Live sketch of the same name Wayne’s World is a wacky irreverent pop-culture comedy about the adventures of two amiably aimless metal-head friends Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey). From Wayne’s basement the pair broadcast a talk-show called Wayne’s World on local public access television. The show comes to the attention of a sleazy network executive (Rob Lowe) who wants to produce a big-budget version of Wayne’s World and he also wants Wayne’s girlfriend a rock singer named Cassandra (Tia Carrere). Wayne and Garth have to battle the executive not only to save their show but also Cassandra. Director Penelope Spheeris Myers and Carvey hang a lot of silly but funny jokes on this thin plot and the energy of the cast – as well as the wild pop-culture references – make Wayne’s World a cut above the average Saturday Night Live spin-off movie.

Great film, but Blu-Ray is not a massive improvement over the DVD Wayne’s World is directed by Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization.) The film stars Mike Myers (Austin Powers), Dana Carvey (This Is Spinal Tap), Tia Carrere (Jury Duty), Rob Lowe (St. Elmo’s Fire), Brian Doyle-Murray (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation), Ed O’Neill (Married With Children), and Donna Dixon. The film is based on the classic series of Saturday Night Live sketches of the same name, also starring Myers.Wayne Campbell (Myers) and Garth Elgar (Carvey) are hold-over would-be rockers from the eighties. Wayne still lives in his parents’ basement, and hosts his public access television show, Wayne’s World, from there – a strange show that isn’t afraid to poke fun at its guests. A television executive (Lowe) intends to acquire the rights to the show, so that he can exploi t it and make big bucks from the production. Along the way, Garth will pursue his dream woman (Dixon), Wayne will meet a rock star girlfriend (Carrere), and the twosome will hear…
