Ernest the jail bird

With the 'Ernest' film series, there are people who get much entertainment out of them and finds a lot of appeal in Ernest. There are also people who dislike, or even outright hate, the films and find the character annoying. For me, while they are not great films, the 'Ernest' films are mostly silly harmless fun that don't try to be any more than they need to be. They're mostly uneven but entertaining in a guilty pleasure sort of way, and Ernest is the sort of the character one can relate to easily. The sort of character that is a well-intended serial bungler with a strong heart but always finding himself messing up. 'Ernest Goes to Jail' is the third of the series, after 'Goes to Camp' and 'Saves Christmas' (both uneven but fun too), and is one of the better ones too. 'Ernest Goes to Jail' may not be great. It does look cheap and does betray low-budget. Some of the slapstick once again gets a bit childish and overdone. It's not hard to figure what goes on next in the story, such is its predictability. Lastly, the ending is overblown and insultingly dumb, Ernest films are not known for their logic but this ending throws it out the window and urinates on it. Varney however is immensely likable and a lot of fun as Ernest, while also excelling surprisingly well on villain duty and as Auntie Nelda. The supporting cast are much better than the one in 'Ernest Goes to Camp' (though not on the same page as Douglas Seale in 'Saves Christmas'), with a scene stealing Gailard Sartain and Randall "Tex" Cobb charming in a good guy role. The music is an energetic nostalgic delight, and most of the gags and dialogue while admittedly silly are a range of making one amused to having one in hysterics, all done harmlessly and with no signs of distaste. Good too that the sentimentality was quite a bit less here. Despite being predictable, the story in 'Goes to Jail' feels like there actually is one at least and it goes at a zippy pace, the best paced of the series so far at this point. In summary, guilty pleasure fun. 7/10 Bethany Cox

The Jailhouse of laughs

No matter what the situation, Ernest always brings the laughs and this one is no exception. John Cherry keeps the laughs flowing nonstop from scene to scene. I even like his Rube Goldberg-like contraptions at his house since I'm a fan of this stuff. If I were to single out the funniest scene it would have to be the one where he's the old lady. Hilarious! RIP Ernest P Worrell

Making a murderer eat your heart out

We're in Ernestville now baby, and the train just won't stop chugging Ernest's hard wang of comedy justice. This movie taught me so much about the government and how we accidentally trick janitors into jury duty. My favorite scene is when Ernest's mushroom tip is exposed in the courtroom, and the judge orders it to be cut off. Why can't people watch this movie and accept that the justice system is flawed and we should let Jim Varney's corpse make our decisions. A classic moment in the film is when the veterans tie Ernest's nipples to the top of the Empire State Building and toss him off the side. Its also funny when Ernest is at the hospital and rats make love to the hole in his heart. Perhaps my favorite scene in the whole movie is when Ernest's doctor whacks Ernest's wang off in front of the dying children's hospital, and the children are delighted by the extreme humiliation Ernest experiences from being sexually taken advantage of. 10 stars
