Ernest is Excellent
13 November 2007 | by spooly_montanaSee all my reviews

Jim Varney as Ernest P. Worrell is one of the most memorable characters I remember from growing up in the 80s. Good stuff. I did not see this short film yet, but I will. Just picked up the Essential Ernest on sale for $5, at WalMart, and its got two films and a lot of the short film content like this one. Ernest and Jim Varney will be sorely missed. If you have never seen an Ernest film, check out Ernest Goes to Camp, which was an excellent comedy. His commercial shorts are hysterical too. The interaction between him and Vern is priceless. Vern is just the camera eye view, we never ever see him in any of his films. Some of his stuff can be rather silly, but its refreshing to see him tackle comedy like that, in a sincerely genuine way. He is like a clown, just not with all the creepy makeup.
