Ernest Goes To Jail

Hey Vern! What am I doin' in the hoosegow? It's just Ernest P. Worrell's (Jim Varney) dumb luck that he's a dead ringer for accused crime boss Felix Nash (also played by Varney). Even dumber luck has placed our boy on Nash's jury. So after a brilliant bit of the ol' courtroom switcheroo, Ernest finds himself on the wrong end of a losing trial and then behind bars! Now, will the real Ernest please stand up? Randall "Tex" Cobb (Blind Fury), Gailard Sartain and Bill Byrge costar in this slapstick comedy.
