This is most excellent news: Mike Myers and Dana Carvey have set aside their differences and reunited the cast of Wayne's World! For the film's 21st anniversary, the men behind Wayne and Garth -- who originated as SNL characters -- joined co-stars Rob Lowe, Tia Carerre and Lara Flynn Boyle for a special screening of the 1992 comedy. At $5 a ticket, the Beverly Hills event sold out in just 90 seconds!
Before showing the film, the stars participated in a panel discussion with director Penelope Spheeris and producer Lorne Michaels. Myers and Carvey didn't address the falling-out they had after Wayne's World, but Myers did admit that he went through a lot that year. "To be honest with you, I don’t remember that year at all," he said. "I remember finishing the film, then I remember my dad dying. Then I just remember Dana and I being strapped to the front of a rocket and me putting on 25 lbs. eating my way through it." (The two comedians reportedly stopped speaking because Carvey thought that Myers stole one of his impressions for the Dr. Evil character in Austin Powers.)
Nonetheless, it makes us happy to see Wayne and Garth back together for one more extreme close-up. It also got us thinking about what other '90s comedy casts should reunite. Hollywood, if you're listening, here are 3 suggestions!
Seeing Macaulay Culkin these days is surreal enough, but it would be even crazier to see him standing next to his burglar nemesis (Joe Pesci) and his onscreen mother (Catherine O'Hara) from the 1990 mega-hit.
Before they were on The View and Downton Abbey, respectively, Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith were knocking heads in this classic nun-on-the-run comedy. Factor in funny lady Kathy Najimy and wild card Harvey Keitel, and we're guessing this would be one hilarious reunion.
Can't Hardly Wait
We bet you don't even remember all the stars in this 1998 teen comedy, because most of them weren't famous yet. Among the fictional graduates of Jennifer Love Hewitt's high school: Jason Segel, Lauren Ambrose, Peter Facinelli, Seth Green, Donald Faison, Sean Patrick Thomas, Clea DuVall, Sara Rue and Selma Blair.
