Is the box office officially back? Inside Out 2 grossed a stellar $101 million domestically in its second weekend. To date, Inside Out 2 is in the domestic top 10 highest-grossing animated films of all time. This weekend should bring more business to theaters with A Quiet Place: Day One and Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1.

If you decide to stay on the couch all weekend, we won’t judge you. There are plenty of things to watch on FAST services, which offer thousands of movies and TV shows for free. Our picks for three free movies to stream this weekend include a comedy featuring two SNL stars, a remake of a famous martial arts film, and an elite 1980s action thriller.

Wayne’s World (1992)

Wayne’s World! Wayne’s World! It’s party time! Excellent! Wayne’s World started on Saturday Night Live, but the overwhelming popularity of the skit led to a feature film in 1994. Wayne Cambell (Mike Myers) and his best friend, Garth Algar (Dana Carvey), host the public-access TV show, Wayne’s World, from his parents’ basement in Aurora, Illinois. The duo’s endearing personalities and love for rock music attract a loyal following.

Sleazy television producer Benjamin Kane (Rob Lowe) buys the rights to Wayne’s World and takes the show to a bigger network. During this transition, Wayne falls in love with Cassandra Wong (Tia Carrere), the lead singer for a local rock band. Under Kane, Wayne’s World loses its charm as it focuses on monetization and sponsorships. To save their show, Wayne and Garth must put the partying on hold and execute the “mega happy ending” plan. Party on, everyone.

Stream Wayne’s World for free on Pluto TV.
