Although he might not have as big a following as Spider-Man, Ernest P. Warrell somehow managed to get a string of films released in the late eighties and early nineties following his earlier acting work pitching electronics and dairy products with his ever-offscreen compatriot Verne. Buena Vista Home Entertainment has opted to release the first three big screen adventures of the bumbler on DVD this September. Ernest Goes to Camp, Ernest Goes to Jail and Ernest Saves Christmas are all on the slate.
The plots are far from complex in these or any other Ernest film. In “Ernest goes to Camp”, the story follows Ernest as he goes to camp. “Ernest Saves Christmas” involves the saving of Christmas by Ernest, and not surprisingly “Ernest Goes to Jail” at some point has Ernest going to jail.
The discs will be featurless but will be presented in widescreen (with the exception of Christmas, which will be fullscreen. All three will be priced at $9.99 and released on September 3rd.
