How about a combination of the earnest charm exuded by Mike Myers and Dana Carved, and all of these totally excellent quotes. Early on, Wayne Campbell addresses the audience with this endearing, yet seemingly unrealistic expectation that foreshadows the movie’s plot.
As Wayne gives the audience a kind of guided tour through the celebrated nightlife of his suburban home, the first stop is Stan Nikita’s donuts, where he and his friends run into his ex-girlfriend, Stacy (played by Lara Flynn Boyle). Stacy approaches their table after some unintended eye contact where she presents him with an anniversary gift, two months after their breakup.
When Wayne’s best friend and co-host Garth Altar asks a question that’s hilariously uncomfortable, the scene feels like it could have been a snapshot of any ridiculous moment between any two friends as they hang out on the hood of their car, the Mirth mobile, while staring deeply into the night sky to innocently ponder life’s grand (and… less than grand) mysteries. While being held at flashlight-point, Garth tries to convince Russell to question his allegiance, calling him ‘Benjamin’s Monkey Boy.’ When Russell pushes back, stating that Benjamin is his friend, Garth offers these helpful words that cause him to defect to the side of our heroes and help save the day.
When Garth asks him if these types of gestures are leading to intentions of marriage, Wayne quickly shoots the notion down. “OK… First I’ll access the secret military spy satellite that’s in a geosynchronous orbit over the Midwest.
It’s a simple setup and punchline joke delivered in a quick and unassuming manner that makes it so effective. The kind of joke that utilizes a type of offbeat humor that isn’t quite cringe-worthy in its awkwardness, but plays off the silence in its own margins.
A genuinely romantic scene that’s almost out-of-place finds Wayne seemingly on top of the world as he’s able to do what he loves for a living, lying around with Cassandra as he predicts his own meteoric rise and fall. Densely layered with the rock star lore ingrained in him, he keeps asking “will you still love me when…” with each triumphant or tragic turn.
In this case, rock legend Alice Cooper’s delightfully enthusiastic lesson on the history of Milwaukee. A long-celebrated line that’s developed an iconic status in its own right, as Wayne begins the opening notes from a certain Led Zeppelin song while at a guitar shop he’s abruptly stopped before being alerted to their strict policy.
