Earlier this week, my youngest’s daughter said something and I responded, “Excellent!” like I do most of the time and she asked where that comes from and I said, “Wayne’s World. You know, party time, excellent!.” She did not know.
So, tonight was the night to rent it and watch it with her and her boyfriend and I think they enjoyed it. I had not seen it in many years. I might have watched it one additional time after seeing it in the theater back in 1992.
I came into it not remembering much about it (The Shandi Effect) but all of the familiar parts were there, of course, and it was a fun movie with good writing and great performances. I just looked it up and it even made Gene Siskel’s list of best movies for 1992.
Wayne’s World was such a huge part of early 1990’s culture and the early 90’s are well-documented by Rob Lowe’s wardrobe and apartment!
I do remember seeing the sequel and I believe it is horrible but I’m sure I’ll get around to seeing it again at some point just to make sure.
Until then, “Wayne’s World! Wayne’s World! Party Time! Excellent!”
