While many have put down the Ernest series, I have always held a special place in my movie collection for this particular film. Sure, it wasn't an Oscar worthy film and it didn't have much of a script, but it quickly introduced us to an icon which I will consider one of my favorite movie characters of all time. Ernest P. Worrel embodied so many simplicities, yet he was sensible and likable simply because of his down-home nature. Also, this film embodied the old story line of the loser teaching the bully a lesson, which is a story paradigm I have always levitated toward. A good heart warming story that was cool and fun to watch.
