Throwback: Ernest Goes To Jury Duty

Posted: November 29, 2011 by Keith Stone in Ernest, Throwback, videos

Ernest Goes To Jail was one of my favorite movies as a kid and the jury duty scene still makes me laugh, Vern. Jim Varney pulled double-duty in this one, playing Ernest and the nefarious Mr. Nash, who switched places with Ernest landing our hero in jail. However, Ernest escapes and eventually exacts revenge on those who wronged him. In short, Ernest Goes To Jail is like a more realistic version of The Shawshank Redemption. I can’t believe it didn’t win an Oscar.

CurlySue is on extended jury duty, most likely as a karmic result for embarrassing me in Times Square. In her honor, we celebrate with a clip from Ernest Goes To Jail, a movie that was robbed of a Oscar. The late, great Jim Varney never gets enough credit.
