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 »
I saw this on WAM last night and had to see it. As another viewer said, there were flashes of pure brilliance so in contrast with the bad plot. Basically all the Ernest humor was really good. Anything having to do with Africa was bad. Sometimes, it wasn't clear whether the filmmakers knew the difference between Africa and India, as Indian accents abounded. Jamie Bartlett was also an excellent villain. Somehow seeing him yell the standard, "You fools!" at his henchmen gave a kind of satisfaction you don't normally get from a B-movie villain. Regardless, it was an Ernest movie, thus stupid by definition. If you like Varney's characters (Ernest/Hey You/etc[you shouldn't know about all of them]) then you should definitely see this movie.
