Even though I know all of the references and have probably seen the majority of the movie in clips, today was the first time I had seen all of Wayne's World from start to finish and I'm glad I did. Wayne's World follows the story of two men who run a TV show out of their basement, this show then gets picked up by a larger company and the pair have to deal with transitioning into show business. Wayne's World stars Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere and Brian Doyle-Murray.
I absolutely loved this film so there are a few positives which include: excellent humour, excellent wit, excellent acting and excellent plot progression. There is not a dull moment in this film, it drifts from joke to joke seamlessly and all of them are hilarious; the humour is very clever in some respects as most of the laughs come from the film being meta. This is very difficult to pull off and only works if done correctly (like in the Jump Street films); in this film it works perfectly and memorable scenes like the product placement scene, the sex scene, the Oscar clip scene and the multiple endings are born and are all excellent. The acting in this film fits the characters perfectly and the leads create memorable long-lasting characters that still exist in pop culture today. On the side of negatives there isn't much apart from the simple plot; not a lot happens in this film and the plot is very basic and is really just a set up for the funny moments to occur, but as this is a comedy the plot doesn't matter at all if the film is hilarious which Wayne's World is.
Overall I loved Wayne's World it is an excellent gem of a film, so taking everything into consideration I rate this film:
