We’re Not Worthy! “Wayne’s World” Celebrates 28 Years
Believe it or not, it was on Valentine's Day, 1992, when Wayne's World opened in theatres. Well, there is romance, so I guess it could be considered a date movie. Starring(and co-written by)Mike Myers as Wayne and Dana Carvey as Garth, Wayne's World centered on the misadventures of the duo who broadcast a public-access cable TV show from Aurora, Illinois.
The comedy is filled with pop culture references and spawned numerous catchphrases such as "Schwing!", "Party On", and "We're not worthy", just to name a few. And director Penelope Spheeris assembled a huge cast to surround Myers and Carvey. Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere, Chris Farley, Ione Skye, Ed O'Neill, Colleen Camp, Brian Doyle-Murray, Lara Flynn Boyle, Meatloaf, and Alice Cooper. In one of the film's funnier moments, Alice gives our heroes a lecture on the history of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Even Robert Patrick has a cameo reprising his role as the T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Wayne's World was a commercial and critical success, debuting at #1 at the box office. Perhaps the movie-going public's desire to see the movie started with the film's original trailer.
Wayne's World became the eighth highest-grossing film of 1992 and still remains the highest-grossing film based on a skit from Saturday Night Live. Happy Anniversary to one of the best comedies from the 90's. "Party on, Wayne!" "Party on, Garth!"
