The 21 Years Later Amazon Prime ReviewThis movie was big when in came out, but I had forgotten what an epic impact on pop culture Wayne's World had in the early 1990s. The Saturday Night Live sketch was your basic "two metal dudes" formula, much like Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Dave & Chainsaw in Summer School, and Jesse & Chester in Dude, Where's My Car? but Wayne's World invented a whole universe of slang and catchphrases which blew up like crazy.

the single re-entered the charts in 1992 and peaked at #2.
Party Time (In Name Only) Except for a glass of champagne at Rob Lowe's bachelor bad, Wayne and Garth never drink in the movie- their TV crew pals do, barely, and their buddy Phil - the one who might "hurl" in the back of the Mirthmobile - is apparently drunk, but for all their talk of partying, no one ever talks about drinking or getting drunk, or getting stoned.
