"We're not worthy! We're not worthy! We're not worthy!" - Wayne & Garth
Video
Wayne's World 2 comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p AVC/MPEG-4 video presentation. The transfer looks a bit more dated than Wayne's World at times, but both are very similar looking. The Blu-ray still provides the sharper and detailed look that one just can't get with DVD. The DVD versions just can't compare, despite still not being demo material presentations. The print does have it's share of dirt and specks, but was never excessive. Fans of the film will be pleased. 7/10.

Audio
A 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio track is included, and like Wayne's World, impresses when it comes to music. The music is lively, clear, and aggressive. It definitely left me impressed, but doesn't really mix well with otherwise dull track. Dialogue was fine, and effects were front-heavy. Once again a surprising track, but far from perfect. 7.5/10.

Extras

Commentary with Director Stephen Surjik

Extreme Close-Up (14:06) (SD)
Cast interviews and thoughts about bringing this sequel, and ideas for the film. Fans of the film should definitely enjoy it.

Blu-news Summary
I tried to like Wayne's World 2, I really did. I loved the characters, and I found myself laughing every once in a while, but the story was far more mediocre than the first film. There were some very cool guest stars in the film, but it was ultimately a quick cash film. They saw the success of Wayne's World, and pushed a sequel out as fast as they could.

The Blu-ray release is quite improved, featuring good video, surprising audio, and ported DVD extras. The video and audio aren't perfect, but the upgrade is clear to those who have seen them on DVD. Wayne's World 2 may end up in your collection anyway if your a fan of Wayne's World. Ultimately, I would recommend making Wayne's World 2 'A Rental.'
