Saturday Night Live has had a long, storied career. Those of that are a little (or a lot) older still remember their heyday as the original cast in the 70s and maybe into the early 80s. By the time it hit the mid-80s and cast changes it fell into a bit of a slump and probably should have been cancelled. But then something happened. A bit of a resurgence. That led to some of their more popular skits to be turned into full length feature films. Some were a success. Some, well, not so much. One of the successes was “Wayne’s World”.
Mike Myers has given up stalking babysitters. Wait, that’s the wrong Mike Myers. This Mike Myers plays Wayne, who partners with Garth (Dana Carvey) running a cable access show. It attracts the attention of a bigwig television producer. This never goes well. They always want to make changes and turn it into something barely recognizable.
Dave Christy loves horror, music, documentaries and more. He is also the co-runner of several fan based groups including Morningstars (THE Lucifer fan group also run by Melanie), and now is a member of the VIPers Spotlight Lounge team for Melanie's Muses. Other than "In The Spotlight" Features -check out his "31 Days Of Halloween Movies"

Melanie says -
So we didn't get Wayne's World as part of another show when I was in England. It aired as part of an unusual line up on BBC 2 and I loved it. When it first came out I had no idea it was related to anything else and just seemed like something I would want to do. (Kinda funny that now, almost 20 years later I am doing sort of the same thing, from my basement, with my husband!)
This didn't really become a well known thing until the 1st movie launched... and then it was everywhere. Bohemian Rhapsody flew to to the top of the charts, and suddenly everyone was headbanging in their cars, and proclaiming how they weren't worthy. For me the best part of the first movie was definitely hearing Tia Carrere sing! This was the first time I had seen her in anything and I have to say I think she was amazing and the movie is worth it just to hear her wail!
Of course when you have a huge success- they feel the need to do a part 2. I know a lot of people don't like it, feel that it was a sell out, etc etc, but I enjoy it. I love the idea of "Waynestock" that came from Jim Morrison in a dream, PLUS you have Christopher Walken in this one - and who doesn't love a movie with him in it???!!! Yes, the whole thing is ridiculous, but sometimes that is just what you need!
