A mostly naked Indian, and the late Jim Morrison visit Wayne Campbell in a dream, and tell him to put on a rock concert. Saying, ‘if you book them, they will come.’
Which is just the start of a slew of great movie and music references, plus cameo appearances dished out during the very funny 95 minutes in this great follow-up to Wayne’s World. A sequel that brings back a few old favorite jokes from the first movie, but still manages to unload a new batch of great quotable dialog.
Again, our nemesis is a slick talking music producer with designs on Wayne’s girl, Cassandra (Tia Carrere), but this time around, it’s the legend, Christopher ‘freakin’ Walken – talk about upping the ante! Rob who?
It’s true, if I compare the two films, I’d have to say the first one is still my favorite. But that doesn’t mean the sequel is a waste of time at all, and what it might lack in originality, it makes up with some truly hilarious scenes. Like when Garth gets seduced by Honey Horneé (an absolutely scwiiiing Kim Basinger!)
If you enjoyed the first Wayne’s World movie, then I have no doubt you’ll like the sequel. Expect inventive and occasionally crude humor, along with loads of great cameo appearances from the world of movies and music.
This isn’t an especially visual film, and will entertain on any device you care to stream it on.
There are so many great moments in this film, but my favorite has to be the scene when Honey Horneé seduces Garth.
