A pleasant distraction
Ernest’s summer camp adventure is actually his second feature-length adventure after he began life in TV commercials (not a lot of people know he actually starred in Dr. Otto and the Riddle of the Gloom Beam the year before), and it’s fairly standard mid-80s family fare.
The clumsy handyman (played, by the late, ever appealing Jim Varney) gets a job as a counselor for delinquent kids who are having trouble fitting in with the more privileged lot. Through pain and pranks he manages to build their confidence. A very tacked-on subplot about an evil businessman wanting scam the Indian camp owner in order to mine the area into oblivion builds to a moderately entertaining climax as Ernest and the kids revolt.
It reminded me a lot of Meatballs and Bushwhacked (both better films) and while it’s shot for the big screen (in lovely anamorphic Panavision) John Cherry still directs like it’s for TV, and clearly should have done more takes and rehearsals. I doubt kids will notice or care, but it gives the film the rushed feel of a TV production.
Worth watching, if only just once.
This is the Ernest movie that started it all…..
“Ernest Goes to Camp” (1987), this movie, in my opinion, is the best Ernest film in the Ernest P. Worrell movie franchise. Also, this movie is another one of my top 10 all-time favorite comedy films! Jim Varney is also one of my top 10 all-time favorite comedy actors! Here’s a little bit of history for you all, Jim Varney got his start in a variety of 1980’s television commercials. Those commercials were so popular, that they actually have a DVD box set out today, showcasing all of his commercials. I’m usually not a fan of TV commercials, but Jim Varney’s commercials as the Ernest P. Worrell character are rare exceptions where I really enjoy them. If you see that DVD collection in your local store, I highly recommend purchasing it, or you can find his commercials on YouTube. Any way, back to the review! This is Jim Varney’s official on-screen debut as the Ernest P. Worrell character. It’s usually a gamble to take a commercial icon and put them in a motion picture. But, this was a gamble that definitely paid off. “Ernest Goes to Camp” is a great movie! It has a perfect story, perfect acting, perfect special effects, perfect sets/locations, and a perfect soundtrack to tie it all together. The story, at first glance, sounds like your typical everyday summer camp film. But I assure you, that it’s everything but, in a good way! Ernest gets promoted to be camp counselor, who has to take care of a group of juvenile delinquents. There are plenty of great morals and lessons learned, with comedy thrown in throughout to keep it fun and exciting. As far as the acting goes, all of the actors and actresses perform their characters perfectly. Obviously, the shining star is Jim Varney as Ernest P. Worrell. He really makes this movie! Had some other different character, rather than Jim Varney as Ernest played the main role, it may not have worked. Jim Varney has also played a few other characters, but I consider Ernest P. Worrell to be his signature role! This movie shows his full complexity as an actor, and then some. The children playing the juvenile delinquents do a great job with their roles, Victoria Racimo does a nice job as the camp nurse, and Ernest’s potential love interest. Iron Eyes Cody plays Chief St. Cloud, and this was his final on-screen appearance. He has also been in a few commercials, as well as movies. But he does a stellar job in his role! John Vernon is a brilliant villain, and Lyle Alzado is a great henchman. The special effects are very well done, and they still hold up today. Practical effects always beat CGI any day! The sets/locations are very beautiful, being filmed in Tennessee. I love the landscape of the southeastern USA! Finally, the soundtrack is very well done and truly sets the tone for the film. There is one emotional song, sung by Ernest P. Worrell, which is just as relevant today as it was back then. Every time I hear him sing that song, I actually get goosebumps! I do not get goosebumps very often, for a song to give me chills like that is an impressive feat, and it’s sung by a comedian! “Ernest Goes to Camp” is a comedic marvel, and it’s always a ton of fun to watch. No matter what mood I’m in, it’s guaranteed to put a smile on my face, and I know it will do the same for you. I can watch this movie over and over again and never get tired of it. Of course, I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars on my scale, which equates to 10 out of 10 stars. To finish my review, let’s have a moment of silence for the late, but great actors; Jim Varney, Iron Eyes Cody, John Vernon, and Lyle Alzado. The four of you have really helped bring this movie to life! If you haven’t seen “Ernest Goes to Camp”, or any of the other Ernest movies, what are you all waiting for? Go check them out today, I guarantee you’ll enjoy them. To quote Ernest P. Worrell: “Know what I mean?”
