12 Months of Mike Month 3: Wayne’s World 2

We’re now a quarter of the way through our year-long deep dive into the cinematic oeuvre of Mike Myers, and would you believe it, the movie is actually pretty darn good: Wayne’s World 2 may not be quite on the same level as its predecessor, but it’s funnier and more memorable than a sequel to a Saturday Night Live spinoff movie has any right to be. Join us as we discuss our favorite and least favorite scenes, the only circumstances under which we would be interested in seeing a Wayne’s World 3, and whether Wayne and Garth are actually ageless, dimension-hopping demigods. Let us know your thoughts in the comments–we’ll be back next month for Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.
