Editorial Reviews

Two theatrical hit comedies starring the lovable Jim Varney with all-new high-definition film transfers! Ernest Goes to Camp features everyone s favorite pitchman Ernest P. Worrell as he stars in his first feature film as the bumbling handyman at Kamp Kikakee who is given a chance to finally be a counselor to a group of juvenile delinquents.

Ernest Goes to Jail bring back the affable bank janitor Ernest P. Worrell is called to jury duty and soon finds himself in trouble when the lookalike defendant s attorney arranges a switch and has Ernest sent to prison in his client s place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Vern! I'm on BluRay! March 28, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This weekend I was happy to receive from Amazon the 2 for 1 Ernest BluRay of Ernest Goes to Camp and Ernest Goes to Jail. For anyone who has ever been an Ernest fan, this is definitely a MUST OWN.

The people of Mill Creek Entertainment (the company that now owns the rights to the Ernest Franchise with the exception of Ernest Saves Christmas, still owned by Disney) have done a stellar remastering of the films. Ernest Goes to Camp is presented as it was when it came out on DVD in its original scop widescreen presentation of 2.35:1 but on BluRay, the colors and sound have been given a complete overhaul. It truly is like watching a film released in theaters only yesterday. You have the option of viewing the film with either Dolby Digital, Dolby Surround, and newly created Dolby True HD sound. The music is crystal clear (I LOVE the composition Brave Hearts performed by Gary Chapman), the picture is incredibly vibrant (the opening shot of the moon is truly beautiful and shots at the camp are bright enough to make it feel like it really is Summer), and while there may be no extras included, the fact that the company took the time to go through each frame and remaster is for the ultimate home viewing experience is an amazing honor for one of the most recognizable characters of the 80s. Jim Varney (may he Rest in Peace) would be pleased.

Moving on to Ernest Goes To Jail, the newest treat for fans of this one (it's my personal favorite in the Ernest franchise and I was lucky enough to see it in the theater back in 1990 when I was 6 years old!) is that for the first time, it is presented in its WIDESCREEN presentation of 1.85:1. Definitely a big reason for me to smile when I watched it! The picture is also presented in 16:9 format so it fits perfectly to widescreen TVs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Parts 1 and 2 of 86 August 3, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Ernest's summer camp adventure is actually his second feature-length adventure after he began life in TV commercials (not a lot of people know he actually starred in Dr. Otto and the Riddle of the Gloom Beam the year before), and it's fairly standard mid-80s family fare.

The clumsy handyman (played, by the late, ever appealing Jim Varney) gets a job as a counselor for delinquent kids who are having trouble fitting in with the more privileged lot. Through pain and pranks he manages to build their confidence. A very tacked-on subplot about an evil businessman wanting scam the Indian camp owner in order to mine the area into oblivion builds to a moderately entertaining climax as Ernest and the kids revolt.

It reminded me a lot of Meatballs and Bushwhacked (both better films) and while it's shot for the big screen (in lovely anamorphic Panavision) John Cherry still directs like it's for TV, and clearly should have done more takes and rehearsals. I doubt kids will notice or care, but it gives the film the rushed feel of a TV production.

Worth watching, if only just once.

As for Ernest goes to Jail, this time he is called up for jury duty where the crook on trial realizes that he's a doppleganger for his incarcerated boss. After a convoluted switch Ernest if behind bars while his evil counterpart Nash is working night security at the bank, planning to rob it and make moves on Ernest's girl.

It's a familiar plot, and the production values are not that great (what's with all the pink lighting in jail?) but Jim Varney's mugging and the story's eccentric imagination make it a fun watch. It's a tighter movie than Camp though, which I felt was a bit of a false start to his big screen adventures.

These are both classic movies that I really liked when I was growing up. They're still probably the best movies that Jim Varney has done as Ernest P. Worrell. I still really enjoyed watching them again, even if they are some of the silliest movies ever made.

As for the quality of the audio/video; it's pretty good overall. There are some areas in the movies that are really sharp and others that are just plain bad. But overall, it works just fine. I wasn't expecting the highest quality digital transfer or anything. As for the audio, it works well enough, with options for PCM Uncompressed 2.0, DTS HD 2.0, and Dolby Digital 2.0. I had hoped there would be options for 5.1 surround as well, but there is only stereo... at least we have the best option available (PCM Uncompressed).

Both movies are contained on 1 disc, which is kind of nice as it's a little more convenient. It's probably possible to fit both movies onto 1 disc because there are no extras at all. This was a little disappointing, but not a big deal. Considering the low price of the package, it's hard to be upset with any of the missing features I mentioned. If you're an Ernest fan, there's no reason not to get this set.

I actually like the comedy of the late Jim Varney, and this Mill Creek double feature Ernest blu-ray will surely please Ernest/Jim Varney fans.

The PQ in it's original widescreen presntations looks superb (2.35:1 for Ernest Goes To Camp and 1.85:1 for Goes To Jail, and each film has 3 audio options.

and it's an affordable too.

I'm a big fan of Mill Creek Entertainment, as they release stuff no studio will release these days, a godsend for us who like obscure hard to find movies and TV shows!
