It's halfway remarkable how strong a touchstone "Wayne's World" remains in pop culture: the minting of "Bohemian Rhapsody" as a karaoke staple is a given, but look for the origins of "That's what she said," along with the kind of ironic humor (seemingly dense metalhead Wayne referencing Kierkegaard in fluent Cantonese) that continues to hold sway in hipster circles. Dana Carvey's Garth is a work of comic brilliance.
A childhood favourite which, for better or worse, launched Mike Myers career. Watching it years later, I'm surprised at how Dana Carvey is now the performer who steals the show for me. Also, the gag rate, as with the Austin Powers films, is surprisingly high. So many films produced in the 1990's now look terrible, but this is the '90's done right - with Pizza Hut product placement, T2 references, and Alice Cooper.
A cult classic, so 80/90s... However, it takes time to adjust to the type humour and dose of silliness it serves. I was about to give up after the first 10 minutes, but then it gets better and better, or is it a matter of mentioned adjustment it might require? ;)
Comedy genius Mike Myers brought the world Wayne's World. I have seen this film more times than I can count and it is so worth it every single time. I first saw this when I was in my teenage years and didn't really get it at first, as I got older I watched it again and again, until it became one of my favourite weekend films. A comedy classic.
Doing my level best to read something so entrenched in the references of its place and time, I liked it okay. It reminds me a little bit of Deadpool in that something straight and sweet is accomplished, but it's varnished with about a thousand jokes and references. The irony never really threatens the 'dramatic meat' of the movie. And the movie's self-awareness smooths its cliche'd nature a bit. Party on, Wayne.
