I miss the guy, ok? I really do. I loved the Ernest movies, in a way that is hard to explain. There was always a strange sort of sweetness to the character, and I really had a great time every time I saw one. Ernest goes to Camp? Genius! Ernest goes to Jail? Even better.
He also had memorable moments in the Toy Story movies, The Beverly Hillbillies movie, and countless other stints here and there. Do yourself a favor. Go rent a Jim Varney movie and pop some corn. You’ll be glad you did.
