For those who are not a part of the SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE cult following, WAYNE’S WORLD is a mindless parody of two heavy-metal crazed but otherwise nerdy teenagers who host a weekly talk show on public access TV. Comedians Garth Algar and Wayne Campbell live in their “cynicism is bliss” world until a slick TV producer discovers them. Enter Rob Lowe, once again cast as a low-down, cheating, lover-boy scoundrel who is out to exploit these no-brainers by selling their show to an unscrupulous sponsor. With the minor enticement of $5,000 and a chance to buy the guitar of his dreams, Wayne signs away control of the show as well as his sexy girlfriend and his buddy’s friendship.
A disaster in the end? One of three endings is yours to choose. For the viewer, the “happily ever after” ending was watching the end credits roll. In spite of a few funny moments and some sophomoric erudition, WAYNE’S WORLD is one of those SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE skits that has gone on too long. It forces the viewer to leave his brain and convictions at the door, with the foul language, plenty of sexual innuendoes and its blatant disrespect for authority.
