Barry Worth: Listen, I made a mistake, all right? I could have played college ball, and I could have gone pro. Listen to me when I'm talkin' to you. But I messed up. I dropped out of school, and I didn't get an education and that was it.
Quincy Worth, Barry's Son: So because you messed up, I can't get the shoes?
Barry Worth: No. No. Because I messed up, you can't mess up. Thinkin' you need things you don't. You're listenin' to the wrong people, son. Well, when you're older, you'll understand.
Quincy Worth, Barry's Son: When I'm older, I'll end up just like you.

Unfunny rubbish
28 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

Ernest is back, this time in possession of a pair of magical trainers that enable him to mumble mumble who cares it's crap. There must be an audience for these films as there are two hundred of them, but I'll be damned if I can see the appeal.

Once again Jim Varney's gurning routine raises so few laughs that my TV switched itself off in protest. The man is just crushingly unfunny. The brain dead script doesn't help matters, as it's full of half-baked 'be yourself' homilies and bores us with a clumsy subplot involving a scheming promoter. And the misconceived sequences in which Ernest employs his magic shoes use shots of an amazed crowd to cover up the lack of ingenuity in the visual effects department and director John R. Cherry III hopelessly fumbles what little action we do see. Tat.
