Party on! The cast of the 1992 classic Wayne’s World reunited in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

Both Mike Myers and Dana Carvey — who have been plagued by feud rumours since the 1997 release of Austin Powers — attended the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences screening.

Even director Penelope Spheeris, who did not return for the 1993 sequel — reportedly at Myers’ request — was on hand, as were Tia Carrere, Lara Flynn Boyle, Rob Lowe and Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels.

Wayne’s World began as an SNL skit, with heavy metal fans Wayne (Myers) and Garth (Carvey) hosting an exuberant live show from their parent’s basement.

In addition to air guitar and air drumming, the skits also featured extreme close-ups and dream sequences.

The movie, which was filmed in 34 days, went on to make more than US$ 121 million.

The Myers-Carvey falling out reportedly occurred when Myers used Carvey’s Lorne Michaels impression as the basis for his Dr. Evil character in Austin Powers.
