Some are funny,and some are not...
21 March 2000 | by mpf1See all my reviews

I'm sure alot of you remember T.V commercials from the '80s featuring Jim Varney as Ernest P. Worrell. In this film,you get to see over 100 of these plus about 10 minutes of bloopers. Some are funny,and some are not. It just depends on how big of fan you are of Varney's sometimes irritating,but most of the time loveable character.

Rating:**1/2 out of ***** stars
