Wayne's World was a great SNL skit and a pretty good movie. Swingers was a masterpiece.

I have never seen Swingers. Therefore I believe I am totally in the right when I say- Swingers sucks. Waynes World is funnier. ;-D

Or as Bill Simmons once wrote:

"You're So Taguchi... you don't even know how Taguchi you ARE"



Swingers is a great comedy. Wayne's World was funny, but it really seemed like Mike Myers was trying too hard to be funny in WW. I think Myers got his act together for the Austin Powers movies (which are awesome), but Wayne's World was a little bit on the lame side...


Swingers ;-D "Vegas, baby.... VEGAS!"

double down on Swingers

I also thought I'd see Wayne's World crushing Swingers here. A pleasant surprise to see how it's turning out.

This matchup is interesting in that both spawned a whole gaggle of quotable lines that were used wwaaaaayyy too much.

Seriously has Mike Myers made a movie that hasn't become horribly dated after two years?

Right now, go up to someone and quote Austin Powers to them and see what their reaction is. If you bust out "Yeah BABY!" or "Schwing!" at a party you'd probably draw stares and maybe a few heckles. Yet, some movies like Caddyshack or Holy Grail are much older, and yet are still heavily quoted in social gatherings. I think that's a good test to see if a comedy can truly be deemed a classic. If ten years later, the movie still gets quoted by people and doesn't draw groans, then it's probably a worthy classic.

That makes no sense at all. Please disqualify Sim from all future voting.
