'Wayne's World' Reunion

on 'Saturday Night Live'

2/6/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

No, your TV didn't accidentally teleport back to 1992 -- Mike Myers and Dana Carvey got back together on "Saturday Night Live" last night to do their classic sketch, "Wayne's World."



Excellent.

SNL sucks now. Once upon a time, SNL had great writers AND great performers, which is why the old Wayne's World sketches are pretty funny.
They should take a cue from MadTV, and just die already.

They are DEFINATELY showing their age. To those of you commenting and saying that they haven't changed a bit, did you see this in HD? Because I did, and I noticed their age right away... especially Carvey (not that he can help it... he is 55 years old).

While I found the skit reasonably funny (not great, but still not bad), the one thing that really took me out of it more than anything was their age. It was hard to 'buy' them as the late teen/early 20s guys that the characters are supposed to be.


I'm certainly not a 'prude' and I do still enjoy this kind of humor. I still enjoy both of the Wayne's World movies (I even have them both on Blu-Ray), but this sketch seemed like it was probably thrown together at the last minute, which might account for it seeming a bit 'off'.

They did the top-ten list thing, but they didn't have their board where Garth would pull the cover off of each list item as they go, for example.

About 2 1/2 years ago, the two of them did a Wayne's World skit at the 2008 MTV movie awards. I watched it at the time (though haven't seen it since), and I seem to recall it being a lot funnier than this recent skit (and they did do a top-ten list, complete with the board... so it's not like the prop, or a similar one, no longer exists). I also seem to recall them not looking nearly as old in the 2008 sketch as they did this past weekend... though at the time I only had standard def cable (had an HDTV, but hadn't upgraded the cable yet), so maybe that was the difference.

I just have a feeling that perhaps the sketch itself was a last minute idea and/or Mike Myers getting there was a last minute thing. Perhaps they didn't have much time to prepare/reherse.

It still wasn't a bad skit, just not great. I did laugh a few times.

I thought that the Church Lady sketch was excellent, so resurrecting these old skits isn't entirely a bad idea.
