Ernest Goes to Camp / Ernest Scared Stupid / Ernest Goes to Jail (Triple Feature) DVD Review

Synopsis: ALL 3 'ERNEST' BOX OFFICE CHAMPS! His 3 Most Successful films on DVD! Featuring America's Lanky, Loveable know-it-all! 

Jim Varney turned what could've been a mere 30-second TV spot into the memorable, lovable character an entire generation knows as Ernest P. Worrell. From camp, to Halloween and even jail, families across the world enjoyed a variety of adventures with Ernest. This all-new 3-Movie set celebrates the life and crowning achievement of Jim Varney with his most successful theatrical feature films!

Ernest Goes to Camp 1987 / Color / 92 Mins / PG Everyone's favorite pitchman Ernest P. Worrell stars in his first feature film as the bumbling handyman at Kamp Kikakee who is given a chance to finally be a councilor to a group of juvenile delinquents. Ernest has his hands full with his young charges that delight in tormenting him with their practical jokes. When an unscrupulous mine owner sets his sights upon the camp property, Ernest and his campers must band together to save the day! 

Ernest Goes to Jail 1990 / Color / 81 Mins / PG Bank janitor Ernest P. Worrell is called to jury duty and soon finds himself in trouble when the lookalike defendant's attorney arranges a switch and has Ernest sent to prison in his client's place. While Ernest struggles to deal with prison life, his criminal double decides to use Ernest's job at the bank as an opportunity to rob it. Will Ernest be able to break out of prison in time to stop the robbery and expose the mix-up? 

Ernest Scared Stupid 1991 / Color / 91 Mins / PG When Ernest looks to help some children with their Halloween haunted house, he ends up accidentally unleashing an evil troll that intends to bring about the end of the World. While having to deal with his youthful friends being transformed into wooden dolls by the troll, our hero Ernest looks to find a way to stop it and return his friends to normal. This will be one Halloween that Ernest and his pals will never forget!

Review: Who didn't love Ernest?  Come on, be honest!  The late Jim Varney was remembered for his work as Slinky Dog in Toy Story, but before that he was talking to the imaginary Vern and giving us everything he had in the Ernest film franchise.  The ultimate character actor, Sacha Baron Cohen could learn a thing or two!  

All three of these films were box office successes, but our favorite is Ernest Scared Stupid.  It is one of the best halloween-themed films in existance and his highly underrated.  These cult classics were very beloved in their day and should see a comeback in popularity on the underground scene again soon.  The comedy is still great and the stories are fun.

Mill Creek has released this triple back for a super cheap price, which is fantastic.  You can get all three films for around $7.  Seriously...$7!  How can you say no to that?  We can't.
