Indeed, this is not the best Ernest film that has ever been created, but it is still an Ernest film. Once again, Jim Varney plays Ernest, the clumsey man who has all the good intentions in the world and saves the day in the end. It's funny, you never picture Ernest as a basketball player and this movie proved that he isn't lol! The movie, as in his previous films, has good heart. If you are a fan of Ernest, you should at least check this film out. I'm not recommending that you buy it just yet. Compared to some of his other movies, the movie doesn't compare to greats such as Ernest Goes to Jail. Still, I can't help but feel a little sad now that Jim has passed and we no longer have Ernest to save the day. It was a great legacy, and the character is portrayed very weil in this film. The story is sadly just not much to work with.
