Wayne’s World: 10 Best Quotes from the SNL Movie

Wayne’s World hit theaters on February 14, 1992. It remains one of the best Saturday Night Live sketches that evolved into a film. Per Box Office Mojo, Wayne's World had a budget of $20 million and grossed over $183 million worldwide. Of that worldwide gross, $121.6 million came from the United States alone. Needless to say, that kind of profit made the producers say, "SCHWING!" Wayne's World represents many things. For starters, it's a great buddy movie. Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar will forever be one of pop culture's greatest best friend pairings. There's such an inherent sweetness and silliness about both of them. It's rather apt the film was released on Valentine's Day. There's, of course, a more traditional love story at the center of Wayne's World between Wayne and Cassandra that still has an unconventional twist. How many times have we seen stories of a woman chasing after a male rock star? In Wayne's World, that gender dynamic is swapped. Then again, who could blame anyone for trying to win a total babe like Cassandra? Also, not enough is said about how perfect Tia Carrere is in this movie. Her comedic moments play perfectly with Mike Myers. The other love story in Wayne's World is that of rock fans with the music they love. From the iconic "Bohemian Rhapsody" scene to being backstage with Alice Cooper, this movie is a great example of rock fandom and how integral rock music is to the everyday lives of its fans. Without a doubt, it is 95 minutes of comedic genius that still resonates to this day, especially if you're a rocker. Want proof? Look at this selection of the best Wayne's World quotes. They make us feel kinda funny, like when we used to climb the rope in gym class.
