    I possibly laughed at Wayne's World back when it was new, but I can't be sure. Today, I can appreciate it and it definitely has a place in popular culture that goes beyond the sketches that spawned it, but I'm not particularly moved by comedies that star broad cartoon characters in what is ostensibly the real world (there is a LOT of irritating mugging at the camera). I'll give the movie its due, however. The trick of making these two juvenile local cable access hosts have access to the camera, going meta, etc. is a great touch, and while the movie's always aiming to get to places where Wayne and Garth can say their famous lines from SNL, it appears the sketch series was a lot deeper than most. You realize there are a LOT of catch phrases to get through and no need to repeat them. That's rare for an SNL movie. And of course, it's full of iconic moments like the Bohemian Rhapsody sing-along, Wayne speaking Cantonese, the guitar store that won't let you play Stairway to Heaven, the soft-spoken Alice Cooper, the product placement, and the multiple endings, as well many good, cracking lines and movie/TV spoofs. Now if only the two leads didn't look like sketch comedians in bad wigs, making faces at the audience. That said, the least believable thing in the movie is that anyone thinks Tia Carrere's act is at all metal. But she does seem to be having a lot of fun, and I do like her in this. 3 years 11 months ago
