An image from Wayne's World

Wayne Campbell (Myers) hosts his own public access cable TV show with best friend Garth (Carvey). The programme's cult following prompts the interest of producer Benjamin Kane (Lowe). Attracted by the promise of big money, Wayne and Garth eagerly hand over the rights to their creation. However, this decision comes at a cost. Not only is Benjamin now running the show, he also has his eyes on Wayne's girlfriend Cassandra (Carrere). Will Wayne be able to get his show back, win the girl and save the day?

Wayne's World has rightfully become a cult classic. Before Mike Myers became a time travelling secret agent or a green ogre, he was the endearingly silly host of a cable access show. Filled with sight gags, one-liners, movie and TV parodies, celebrity cameos and catchphrases which quickly entered the cultural zeitgeist, Wayne's World is well worth seeing even if, like me, you've seen it a hundred times before.

If one needed any more proof of the film's cultural impact, can you imagine listening to Bohemian Rhapsody without headbanging furiously during the guitar solo in the middle? We have Wayne's World to thank for that, and so much more.
