“The Classic Two Idiots Roles”
The movie has a pleasing daftness.
Owen Gleiberman - Entertainment Weekly
The film tends to be funny when confining itself to short sketches or dopey television-based humor, flat when pretending to be anything more.
Janet Maslin - New York Times
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll drive home. As Wayne or Garth would say, it's schweeeet.
Desson Thomson - Washington Post
Like the Bill & Ted movies, this one works on its intended level and then sneaks in excursions to some other levels, too.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
Very silly but enjoyable.
Jonathan Rosenbaum - Chicago Reader
Director Penelope Spheeris, with her first major studio assignment (and eight-figure budget), delivers a colorful but uneventful picture.
Variety Staff - Variety
Hollywood surely accepts the movie's message: laughter is the least expensive therapy. And audiences may happily parrot another Wayneism to Myers: 'He shoots! He scores!'
Richard Corliss - TIME Magazine
Incredibly lowbrow, but many teens will love it.
Scott G. Mignola - Common Sense Media
represented more than a slacker voice for a generation. It was a cultural phenomenon
Kevin Carr - 7M Pictures
With Myers feeling his oats as a comedy star, Wayne's World turned out to be an irresistibly silly (and masterfully marketed) option for audiences. [Blu-ray]
Peter Canavese - Groucho Reviews
Everything wrapped within this film works...
Rory L. Aronsky - Screen It!
Though it appears to be a brain-dead comedy, it at least has a little something to say about American suburbia in the 1990s -- a specialty of director Penelope Spheeris.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
It's snickering, silly and, at times, downright demented (Bugs Bunny in a dress?), but that's why it works.
A classic comedy of its time.
- Empire Magazine
Confronts the cultural emptiness of late 20th-century life head-on, revealing a profound hollowness in the heart of modern man (and babe).

Much of the credit for the film's success lies with Spheeris, whose confident if rough-edged direction keeps it on track and cooking.

Mike Myers' first claim to fame. Funny.

Filme engracado e jovial, faz criticas sociais em piadas hilarias que funcionam muito bem. Carvey e especialmente engracado, mas Myers tambem se destaca em varias cenas.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
Walter Chaw - Film Freak Central
What a shock, it is funny!
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
This one was mildly clever and amusing. The sequel was utter crap. Tia Carerre is immaculate.

Mark Palermo - Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
A classic comedy! Proves Mike Myers was funny once.
Alex Sandell - Juicy Cerebellum
This movie is stupid, but in a smart way: it's supposed to be stupid! Party on!

Jeffrey Westhoff - Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
Cory Cheney - Urban Tulsa Weekly
Very funny SNL spinoff. Don't miss the Bohemian Rhapsody scene
Stefan Birgir Stefansson - sbs.is
Myers and Carvey cut it up on the rare Saturday Night Live skit that shines on the silver screen.
Phil Villarreal - Arizona Daily Star
Mike Myers got better later
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
A bit dated these days, but still worth a schwing.
Scott Weinberg - Apollo Guide
The trick with Wayne's World that seems to cross age and gender in terms of enjoyment is that the characters are endearing.
Rachel Gordon - Filmcritic.com
Even at 95 minutes the film is often too slow and just not rewarding enough.
Mark R. Leeper - rec.arts.movies.reviews
Wears out its welcome after awhile and is never quite as funny as it thinks it is.
Chris Hicks - Deseret News, Salt Lake City
