#165 – Ernest Saves Christmas (1988)

165 Ernest Saves Christmas

Because Mr. Lincoln is a fan of rushing the Christmas season, he has chosen for this week’s barely-December film,¬†Ernest Saves Christmas from 1988 starring Jim Varney as Ernest P. Worrell and a fisheye lens as his best friend Vern. Besides the movie itself, the boys are fascinated with the history of Ernest as an entity, going from local TV commercial celeb, to national commercial celeb, to Emmy-winning childrens’ TV host, to making a series of progressively stupid movies. Quite a weird career, there. Also discussed are plays friends are in, Lincoln’s getting way into¬†The West Wing, and Kyle’s getting way into nothing.
