Ernest (Jim Varney) gets a job as a fix-it man at a summer camp for troubled boys, but what he really wants to be is a counselor. This juvenile comedy, filled with potty humor and slapstick, chronicles his campaign to get a promotion. A consummate bungler, he ends up causing all kinds of comical chaos. Fortunately, he also ends up helping many of the campers. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
I loved this movie as a kid, my kids love it. Watching as an adult, I find it's not quite as funny as I used to think it was. It's still a good movie, and not nearly as "questionable for children" as other Ernest movies. I'll probably rent this one again.
