* ToTheBatpole: The second film shows that Wayne and Garth's new studio now has the whole Adam West Batman setup to get to the Mirthmobile; Wayne skips it however, to provide us with a recap while in an old elevator.

* ManlyTears: Wayne sheds these in the second film because Creator/CharltonHeston's cameo is ''just that awesome.''



* OneSceneWonder: Both in-universe and out. CharltonHeston shows up in one scene when [[BreakingTheFourthWall the actor who's supposed to be delivering a line isn't up to snuff.]] His performance in the scene reduces Wayne to tears.

[[BuddyPicture The movie follows the adventures of Wayne and Garth]], the co-hosts of a cable access show, in their quest for fame and fortune, battling a crooked network executive who [[ExecutiveMeddling tries to undermine both their control over their show]] and Wayne's attempts to woo Cassandra Wong (Tia Carrere), a rock singer and bassist who also seeks to make her fortune in show business.

''Wayne's World'' was followed by ''Wayne's World 2'' (1993), which featured Creator/ChristopherWalken as record producer Bobby Cahn. In the film, Wayne feels the need to do something with his life, but he doesn't know what until the ghost of [[Music/TheDoors Jim Morrison]] visits him in a dream and tells Wayne that his destiny is to put on an epic rock concert in Aurora. To put on the concert Wayne enlists the help of Garth as well as the world's greatest roadie, Del Preston. Meanwhile, Garth becomes involved with blonde bombshell Honey Hornee ([[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY it's pronounced "hor-NAY"]]) while Bobby Cahn plots to break up Wayne and Cassandra so that he can take her with him to Los Angeles.

''Wayne's World'' received mostly positive reviews upon release. It was commercially successful (just like every ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''-based film up through ''Ladies' Man''), earning $122 million at the box office when it only cost $14 million to make. The second film was a modest box office hit. It earned about 48 million dollars in the United States market, where it was the 28th most successful film of its year. In 2000, readers of ''Total Film'' magazine voted ''Wayne's World'' the 41st greatest comedy film of all time.

* FaceHeelTurn: Wayne goes through a minor one in the first film, driving away both Cassandra and Garth by being a JerkAss. Thankfully he realizes fairly quickly how much of a jerk he's been and proceeds to right the wrongs he's created.

** Also in the second film, Wayne and his friends are all in disguise (Wayne is a construction worker, Garth a traffic cop, and their other two friends as a biker and sailor) to spy on Cassandra and Bobby. Once they are found out, they run away and hide in a gay dance club. They end up on the stage, and because of their disguises, are made to dance to the [[Music/VillagePeople Village People's]] signature song "YMCA," completed with the inclusion of the Native American hallucination.

* ReadTheFinePrint: Wayne and Garth fall victim to this. Wayne acts like he is reading the contract, but it's pretty obvious later on in the movie he did not. It's a bit of RealityEnsues because creepy as Benjamin is he is staying entirely within the laws and averts MovingTheGoalposts. The things Wayne gets in trouble for are quite reasonable things to put in the kind of contract he signed.

** While racing off to rescue Cassandra from Ben, Wayne gets pulled over by a motorcycle cop. Said motorcycle cop turns out to be [[{{Franchise/Terminator}} the T-1000]] flashing a photo of John Connor asking "Have you seen this boy?"

* ClassicallyTrainedExtra: Lampshaded in the sequel. A gas station attendant is removed for being a terrible actor... and replaced by '''Charlton Heston'''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eWsFFQP0gA He is so awesome]] that Wayne is reduced to tears.
