This is one of my favorite Ernest films. It's got some truly wacky bits at the end.

Awesome just to see Jim Varney as Ernest P. Worrell but also Evil Ernest.I remember hating this movie when I was little for some reason but now after watching it today, I can't understand why.The jury scene where Ernest bites into the pen made me laugh when I was little & still does today.1 thing I always wondered is why Chuck and Bobby never got their own movie or TV show.They were great together & so funny!

I haven't seen this in over 15 years. I remember renting it from the video store often. Awesome movie. The Ernest series was pretty good for the time (and pretty good for kids). This is the best of them all and a true children's classic.
