Some VHS and DVD prints have slightly different opening and closing credit sequences, notably some have "and Douglas Seale as Santa Claus," while others just have "and Douglas Seale." The closing credits on some prints also feature smaller type. See more »
I am NOT an Ernest fan, so my review should be seen in that light. I have only completely watched 2 of these films (this one and Ernest Goes to Jail) and could not make myself sit through several others that were simply unwatchable for most adults. What made the 2 I actually did finish watching different is that they were mildly entertaining fluff that wouldn't irritate adult viewers and actually had some funny bits (Ernest Goes to Camp and all the other films I TRIED watching would most certainly irritate most adults). It has some cute moments and I can certainly think of many worse holiday films. It's about the same quality level as the Santa Clause movies. So, if your kids want to watch this, give it a chance. Yes, the humor is rather sophomoric at times but it's not a bad flick.
