Worthy Ernest sequel
24 March 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

This is the third best in the Ernest line, second to Ernest Scared Stupid.

It was odd that they went this route with an Ernest film. It almost seemed like they were trying to take Worrell too seriously, and in some places, this film comes off as rough and crude, rather than funny. In spite of that, the story is interesting...intriguing even, but the supporting character, the professor, is a detriment to this work. His interpretation of the character, or maybe even the character itself, is too brash and harsh to fall into the usual Ernest formula, thereby derailing what should have been the best Ernest movie of the line.

I always hoped Varney's Ernest would attempt something more substantive like this again, but alas! it is not to be. RIP Jim Varney. You are sorely missed by those of us who loved you.

It rates a 6.2/10 from...

the Fiend :.
