Wayne is still living at home. He has a world class collection of name tags from jobs he's tried, but he does have his own public access TV show. A local station decides to hire him and his sidekick, Garth, to do their show professionally and Wayne & Garth find that it is no longer the same. Wayne falls for a bass guitarist and uses his and Garth's Video contacts to help her career along, knowing that Ben Oliver, the sleazy advertising guy who is ruining their show will probably take her away from him if they fail.

Did You Know?
The episode of The Twilight Zone that Garth describes to the audience doesn't exist.
Frankie Sharp's Vanity plate "MR BIGGG" has no Statue of Liberty on it when it is shown in Milwaukee, but yet when we see it in Chicago during the Mission Impossible theme montage it has the Statue of Liberty to the right on the plate.

It's really good seeing you, Benjamin. You haven't been into Shakey's for so long.
Well, I've been real busy.
I laughed my head off! Funniest film of the early 90's
Wayne's World is a silly yet utterly hilarious look at two dimwits (based
they're SNL skit Mike Myers and Dana Carvey) who have their own public
access TV show called "Waynes World". The story thickens to a nice touch
with Rob Lowe as a big time hot-shot who wants to bring their show to big
heights. Tia Carrere has never been hotter as the woman who Wayne wants
"we'll be mine". Many sight gags, many good lines, and probably all
quotable, this movie (like Myers' Austin Powers) belongs in a place in
comedy film history. A++
