Of all the famously eccentric actors whom Ernest imitates at a mirror in jail, Sylvester Stallone is the only actor who was not a classic one at the time. He is the only actor who was still alive and who was still acting in movies during and after the time this movie was made.
There were a few extended and deleted scenes that were not featured in the original version of the movie, but were in some made-for-TV versions. 1. There was an extended scene where Ernest was washing himself in a washing machine, and was staggering after he stepped out. 2. A scene where Ernest was trying to sneak out of jail and was found by the searchlights. Then, he was making shadow puppets. 3. An extended scene where Nash (as Ernest) was in Mr. Penalsmythe's office negotiating the clerk job. 4. A deleted scene where Ernest was working as a bank clerk.
