Sometimes, a film made for the childish audience can transcend time and generations and become widely accepted by all. Rocketman with Harland Williams did, and i believe that so has Ernest Goes To Camp. There is just a serious enough a theme to the film of the heartless land developer trying to drive the low earning camp off the property, but Jim Varney manages to keep it silly enough to be entertaining. This film has some great moments, and it is worth the *now* retail price of like $5-8 just to see the fashions these kids in the late 80's wore. Also, being 17 now, i grew up at the same time as this film. Look out for the song i'm awfully glad it's raining sung by Varney. It makes me teary everytime i hear it.
