Boy this is great! This is just like that John Wayne movie when he and Sundance were in Bulgaria.
Bolivia. They were in Bolivia. Wait a minute, they were killed in Bolivia.
Well maybe they should've stayed in Bulgaria.

This film really exposes William Akers as the cinematic genius that he is. While on the surface the story of goofy Ernest may see superficial and desultory, Akers manages to delicately weave a thought provoking and life-changing story that tugs at your heart while keeping you at the edge of your seat.
I have seen the film many times and each time I am reminded what an amazingly durable and lasting work it is. It endures because of the underlying meaning - a man is faced with the choice of being a responsible person or simply following his emotional whims.
There is an Ernest in all of us.
10 out of 10!!
