"Wow! What a totally amazing, excellent discovery!" - Wayne CampbellVideo
Wayne's World comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p AVC/MPEG-4 video presentation. The film starts out rough, looking very dated and ugly, but the transfer improves significantly after the first few minutes. The film has never looked better, featuring a sharper and more detailed presentation. Colors see a significant upgrade, as do black levels. There's no way one could be disappointed with Wayne's World on Blu-ray, it's far from a stunner, but it's truly never looked better. I actually expected worse from the high-def presentation. 7/10.

Audio
A 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio track is included, and I thought it was very nice. One thing that I was impressed by both Wayne's World as well as Wayne's World 2 is the music, it was both aggressive and clear, and really brought the high-def feel to what could have been another mediocre audio track. Dialogue is front and center, sound effects are mostly front-heavy, but do travel to the surround area at times. Not amazing, but definitely surprising. 7.5/10.

Blu-news Summary
Wayne's World is a totally fun film. The characters are so funny and memorable, and it's one of the reasons many love the film so much. Mike Myers and Dana Carvey are absolutely hilarious, and while the film is dated, it's certainly still funny. The film won't appeal to everyone, but it's certainly one to at least give a rent.

The Blu-ray release is quite nice, featuring improved video, surprising audio, and ported DVD extras. Wayne's World on Blu-ray is 'Worth Checking Out.'
