The 12 Best Quotes from Wayne’s World

November 27, 2023 By Anthony Pereira Go Back

Wayne’s World has some good company – 1992 gave us some solid movie quotes: A Few Good Men has “You can’t handle the truth!”, A League of Their Own has “There’s no crying in baseball!”, My Cousin Vinny has “Did you say ‘yutes’?”, and Scent of a Woman has “Out of order? I’ll show you out of order!”. But Wayne’s World is easily the most quotable film of 1992 (unless, of course, you count singing along with Sister Act as “quoting”).

Coming a dozen years after the success of The Blues Brothers, Wayne’s World was only the second feature film spin-off of a Saturday Night Live sketch. With director Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization, Suburbia) at the helm, the rock n’ roll roots of the sketch were in experienced hands. By all accounts, Wayne’s World was a massive success: it raked in over $180 million in worldwide receipts on a modest $20 million budget, and propelled Canada’s Mike Myers to movie stardom. It was such a hit that it led to not only a sequel, but a string of SNL-inspired films in the 90s, none of which connected with audiences the way Wayne’s World had (and some of which were unmitigated box office disasters).

Much of the magic of Wayne’s World is thanks to its script by Myers and SNL husband-and-wife writing team (and later creators of That ‘70s Show and 3rd Rock from the Sun) Bonnie and Terry Turner. Its combination of slacker-comedy, irreverence, and zeitgeist defining references helped make it highly re-watchable, ensuring we’d still be quoting it almost 25 years later.
