Review : Wayne’s World 2 (1993/PG-13)

It doesn’t matter who you are, well actually let’s rephrase that, it matters who you are if your Gen X, then your most likely a fan of Wayne and Garth. As Bill and Ted were in the 80s, Wayne and Garth were in early 90s. So when your first movie makes over $100 million at the box office, your gonna get a sequel. Honestly Wayne’s World 2 will never beat the first film in pure quality and originality, but it seems time and more or less everyone forgot about this movie because of its bad release date. Had this movie been released on Feburary 18th, 1994 (like the first films Feburary 1992 release) instead of December 10th, 1993 it would have made way more then $48 million at the box office. Wayne’s World 2 is actually rare sequel that delivers, and at the same time functions as its own stand alone story. Wayne and Garth are idiots, and that’s what makes it funny, they are perpetually teenagers who spend there time listening to rock music, and playing hockey. Yet just like the first film the story managed to do something creative with the characters. This film also took parody to the next level by pretty much having its last 10 minuets mirror The Graduate, and of course it knows it’s a movie with Wayne requesting they get a better actor for a bit part, which shows a film crew member rushing in Charleton Heston. Bottom line this film will make you laugh and that’s all you want today. See the original first of course but if you’ve already have then see this one.

On a scale of 1.0 to 5.9 it got a 5.0 out of 5.9
