Was Wayne's World genuinely funny? I mean, does it still hold up for anyone? Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey have both committed major crimes against humor since, and I can't tell if that just makes me loathe most of what they do on principle or if people just mistook their "comedy" for something good at the time.

As 90s comedies go, especially SNL character movies, it's not bad, but it's very dated. I think most would argue the sequel was better because of it's absurdism, but it's hard to keep perspective on these movies because of how uniformly awful everything Carvey and Myers has been since. (yeah whatever Austin Powers was a lazy satire)

Wayne's World is good if you can appreciate dated things for their datedness. The sequel was absolutely terrible but is interesting since it basically abandons plot for the sake of being an attempt at making a primer for DIY rock culture to game the mainstream media. It thinks it's a lot more subversive than it is, but it's a little more subversive than it has any right to be. So on that level it's worth seeing once, but it has aged badly. It was a huge disappointment when I was in middle school, and it has only gotten worse with age. Penelope Spheeris brought at least a bit of nuance to the original.

I'll put it this way: an SNL sketch about two guys making dumb jokes in a basement was turned into a funny movie. Logically, "Wayne's World" should have been on the level of "Superstar" or "Night at the Roxbury" but it actually WORKED, and to me it still does.

This game, though. This fucking game...

I have some nostalgia associated with the film because I went to see it with my dad and older brother and it's a good memory, so I'm biased in that regard. But I think Wayne's World is a decent movie that still, for me at least, holds up. My vote for Wayne's World 2 is that it sucks as a movie, but is still an interesting 90's artifact from an anthropology standpoint.

I can definitely see a lot of the jokes being dated in the sense that there are many gags you'd have to be a certain age to understand. What average 2013 teen or 20-something is going to understand spoofs of "Thelma & Louise," "Laverne & Shirley," "The Graduate," Woodstock, Grey Poupon or the Keep America Beautiful commercial? The movies (both of them) have held up for me out of nostalgia but they're also really funny.

I liked it at the time, but I was still a kid back then. I don't think it'll have aged well.

In other news, this game is really bad. REALLY bad. Check out 83393 for some of that!

To their credit, they did get Mike Myers and Dana Carvey to disinterestedly yell into a microphone.
