Only a bumbling bank janitor like know-it-all knucklehead Ernest P. Worrell (Emmy Award-winning comedian Jim Varney) could serve on jury duty and wind up serving time in the slammer! The laughs start when a crooked lawyer discovers that Ernest is a dead ringer for his crime-boss client...and before you can say "Framed!" the switch is on! While Ernest is behind bars trying to fit in and break out, he manages to turn the big house into a nuthouse full of BIG laughs. Meanwhile, his evil double is busy taking his place at the bank and in his girlfriend's life! Full of comic inventiveness, a wacky cast of characters, and slam-bang special effects, ERNEST GOES TO JAIL is guilty of maximum fun in the first degree!

I declare, "Jim Varney is an american treasure". If you do not understand that deceleration then stop reading right now
This movie highlights what Jim did; made people laugh with a entourage, clowned, mimed, video edited sight gags, linguistically fun tongue twisting word play.
This is a great movie if you love fun stupid.

Do not watch this movie if you are a slave to Hollywood BS.
