ERNEST IN THE ARMY (Video Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Ernest in the Army
—the tenth and last of Jim Varney’s Ernest P. Worrell movies—becomes one of his best. It revolves around a solid storyline and delivers good comedy that can even be appreciated by war flick fans. Director John R. Cherry does another good job in support of the Ernest P. Worrell series.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Jim Varney built the Ernest P. Worrell series on a shoestring budget, acted in multiple roles in many of the films, and generally entertained us in his own unique style. He acted in many television series and voiced characters for movies like Toy Story.
