Mike Myers and Dana Carvey waited just one year to cash in on the runaway success of Waynes World with this fun but unremarkable sequel.
So, unsurprisingly, little has changed since last we met them in their iconic guises of Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar. They still greet the passing of hotties with a reflex schwing, theyre still doing their small-time public access TV show, Garth still has a hairstyle modelled on loft insulation, and Wayne is still having problems with record company slimeballs (in this case Christopher Walken) sleazing over rock star girlfriend Cassandra (the babelicious Tia Carrere).
Also like last time, the movie is based more around a collection of individual sketches than any particularly strong storyline, but what plot there is centres around the lank-haired twosomes attempts at staging their own Waynestock rock festival urged on by Jim Morrison and a weird naked Indian.
Theres also the usual array of cameos, with Charlton Hestons appearance as a good actor (yeah, like were gonna believe THAT) heading a list including Kim Basinger, Heather Locklear, Drew Barrymore and the late Chris Farley.
Its all harmless stuff, and though the overall package isnt quite as sharp as last time, theres still that certain charm to the humour that makes Wayne and Garth impossible to dislike. Theres also another dose of embarrassingly enjoyable rock to help things move along, with everyone from Aerosmith to the Lemonheads getting in on the soundtrack.
It's Got: An early indication of Christopher Walkens aptitude for throwing some shapes on the dance floor.
It Needs: Not to be watched by any secret Kenny G fans out there youll be riled by the dentists chair scene. But hey you probably deserve it.

Unoriginal and lacking the spark of the first movie, but its still great if brainless entertainment. Thank God you still get movies like this that are completely prepared not to take themselves remotely seriously.
