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.
It's 2 excellent to be true! Wayne and Garth are back (and front) in the most awaited video since Wayne's World—Wayne's World 2! Having achieved godlike status as a late-night TV personality, Wayne (Mike Myers) now confronts the question that has plagued man for centuries: Is there life after cable? Wayne gets his answer in a dream, wherein a very famous (and very dead) rock star says, "Put on a rock concert, and they will come." So Wayne and Garth (Dana Carvey) present "Waynestock." But first, Wayne must save his girlfriend, Cassandra, (Tia Carrere) from a sinister record producer (Christopher Walken), as Garth grapples with the advances of mega-babe Honey Hornée (Kim Basinger). Party on!
When a sleazy TV exec (Rob Lowe) offers Wayne and Garth a fat contract to tape their late-night cable-access show at his network, the two can't believe their good fortune ("No way." "WAY!"). But they soon discover the road from basement to big time is a gnarly one, fraught with danger, temptation, and ragin' party opportunities.
The escaped delinquent John W. Burns, Jr. replaces Dr. Maitlin on a radio show, saying he's the psychiatrist Lawrence Baird. His tactless radio show is a hit, and he becomes very popular. But then Dr. Maitlin meets the real Dr. Lawrence Baird at a congress in London...
Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd star in this Cold War farce as two complete misfits who aspire to spy for the CIA. Much to their surprise, they are trained as operatives and sent to Central Asia. But the biggest secret of their covert operation is that they are expendable decoys--for another team of agents sent on the real mission--and no one expects them to survive.
Stellar comedians Dan Aykroyd ("Sneakers," "My Girl") and Chevy Chase ("Funny Farm," "National Lampoon Vacation" series) team up in one of 1985's top-grossing films (over $60,000,000). Aykroyd and Chase meet at the CIA entrance exam. When they're caught cheating, it seems inevitable that they are perfect for a special government mission! A zany homage to the ol' Bing Crosby-Bob Hope road movies, with romantic foil Donna Dixon ("Bosom Buddies"), written by the team that brought you "City Slickers" and "Splash," and directed by hit-maker John Landis ("Animal House," "Trading Places"). A host of star cameos join in for an impossibly fun mission!
