PENELOPE SPHEERIS (Director) - On the heels of directing
such comedy hits as "Wayne's World" and "The Little
Rascals," Penelope Spheeris wanted a chance to direct upandcoming
Marion Wayans in a feature comedy and found the perfect vehicle
Spheeris' versatile directing career has covered the gamut. She
made her debut with the acclaimed, highenergy documentary
"The Decline of Western Civilization," thought by many
to be the definitive statement on the punk rock culture of Los
Angeles. Spheeris then moved into dramatic features with "Suburbia"
and "The Boy Next Door," while completing "The
Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years."
She next catapulted the characters created by Mike Meyers and
Dana Carvey on "Saturday Night Live" into film heroes
with the topgrossing 1992 hit "Wayne's World."
She has also completed work on a third music documentary, "The
Decline of Western Civilization Part III," which she financed
herself, and has been selected for Official Competition at the
1998 Sundance Film Festival.
