Picks and Pans Review: Wayne's World 2
Wayne and Garth are back and they're still schwingin', though with more effort and to less effect. This sequel about the suburban metalheads is crammed to bursting with jokes and parodies but lacks the loony sweetness that made the original a surprisingly endearing romp.
This time out, Wayne (Myers) and Garth (Carvey) are sharing an apartment (aka "babe lair") and edging warily toward adulthood. Then again, growing up for these two means, as Garth says boastfully, going "to a movie on a school night without checking with my parents."
WW2 has scant plot (the Doors' Jim Morrison appears to Wayne in a vision and tells him to produce a rock concert, so he does). It's harmless though, and—big plus!—Basinger, as Honey Hornée, gets to make goo-goo eyes and shake her caboose al Garth. (PG-13)
