At one point, Earnest mentions a (fictional) movie called "Illinois Smith and the Curse of Hitler's Brain". The Indiana Jones reference is obvious, but there was actually a movie called They Saved Hitler's Brain (1968). See more »
The best of the series that unfortunately won't continue
Many people might say that this 8th installment of the Ernest P. Worrell franchise is totally lame, but they're just idiots cause in my opinion this is the best of the now completed series due to the passing of Jim Varney at age 50. This time Ernest tries to win the heart of a waitress by giving her a gift. What Ernest doesn't know is that the gift is an artifact from an African tribe. Ernest and his girlfriend Rene(Linda Kash.)are then taken to Africa by a guy who wants the "gift" because of it's worth. Ernest and Rene escape and travel through The Dark Continent meeting new friends and enemies along the way. Exciting, great story, acting, and o.k. humor. ****1/2 out of *****.
