5. 'Wayne's World' (1992)

Perhaps the most amazing thing about Mike Myers' Wayne Campbell and Dana Carvey's Garth Algar is just how utterly familiar these two suburban heshers are. You knew guys like this: They dressed alike (band tees and ripped jeans), they spoke their own language (Schwing!) and they obviously had a deep and abiding affection for one another ("Party on, Wayne"; "Party on, Garth").
