I am a true child of the 80s, and am slightly embarrassed by how many times I watched this ridiculous movie: At Aaron's brother's house over the weekend, he put "Ernest Goes to Jail" in for the kids on Clear Play (a DVD program that plays movies without bad language/violence, etc) and I thought I'd bust a gut.
Is it dumb? Yes. Is it juvenile? Oh, certainly. But I still find myself giggling uncontrollably and feeling about 13 years old again. It would have been really delightful if my younger brother had been there, cackling with me just like the old days.
I remember getting to know Aaron and deciding he was definitely a keeper when we were talking about how many times we'd seen Ernest movies.
For a really enjoyable waste of time, hit YouTube and look up Ernest Commercials. Seriously good times.
