Ernest Saves Christmas [DVD] [1988]

  • SKU: 4829742
  • Release Date: 09/03/2002
  • Rating: PG
John Cherry directs Jim Varney in the comedy Ernest Saves Christmas, which comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, making it quite difficult to recommend this Disney/Buena Vista release to anyone who is not an Ernest fan. There is little here for the average DVD consumer.

    Synopsis


    Ernest Saves Christmas
    When Santa Claus decides to retire, he appoints a washed-up kiddie show host (Douglas Seale) to take his place. Along the way, the real Santa ends up in the slammer on Christmas Eve, and it's up to goonish, glad-handing Ernest P. Worrall (Jim Varney) to bust him out. Varney plays a handful of supporting characters, including a slick-talking attorney. This film was followed by Ernest Goes to Jail. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      I bought this for my cousin, but I have one of my own. It's not the usual Christmas movie (and I do have lots of those). It's Ernest, so you know it will be fun silliness. I really don't like most of the Ernest movies, but this one is different -- it actually has some touching moments when dealing with some characters' development. Worth checking it out if you haven't seen it.

      Saw this for the first time as a kid in GA and now have my own copy. Living in Florida I can understand the "miracle" near the end of snow. Good laughs throughout the movie that are clean

      Jim Varney kills as usual as helps Santa save Christmas in this holiday outing for everybody's favorite handyman Ernest P. Worrell. As others have stated, this isn't his best (I would give that up to Ernest Scared Stupid) but I digress. It's Ernest. KnowhutImeanVerne?

      Got this for a Christmas gift. Grew up watching this around Christmas for several years. Ernest's adventures often lead to zany encounters and wearing ridiculous disguises, but this time he's doing it to help Santa!

      This is one of my favorite Christmas movies. Widescreen is the best! Best Buy is a great place to order movies, they arrive quickly and they have an awesome selection.

      I had this taped on a VHS as a kid. It's so nice not to have to rewind! It is hilarious as you remember it. Best Buy really was the best buy on this one, too!

      Typical Jim Varney humor. If you enjoyed any of his previous movies you will get a kick out of this festive story of how "Ernest Saves Christmas:. Enjoy.
