Intentionally silly and the cast seemed to have fun making this film. I believe this is the best Ernest movie out there (not that the others are bad either). This can pretty much be seen as an entertaining family movie and feels good.
The best Ernest film, having the best humor quality and plot being assembled better than its' sequels. Ernest Goes to Camp would later be remade as a science fiction Star Wars like film in James Cameron's Avatar.
Ernest can be annoying, but genuinely endearing. This is a harmless, family friendly comedy. I know I'm viewing this through the mindset of when I was four years old, but I'll recommend this one out of sheer nostalgia.
Watched with the fam. Okay, so it doesn't hold up so well 20 years later, but boy did I enjoy this film as a teenager. You can't deny it's got heart, though. And some great one-liners..."Hey, is that a rabbit over there?"
