Trivia

The only Ernest movie in which Vern "appears".
John Cherry the director of this movie and of most of the other Ernest movies said he thought this was the best of the Ernest movies.
During filming, production ran into trouble when the reindeer began to shed their antlers, so replacement antlers had to be obtained.
The "Orlando Children's Museum" featured in this movie was actually the Orlando Science Center, which has since moved to a new location. The building is now used for city's annual Shakespeare Festival and other theater performances.
